The Zamboni Company has had a consistently firm position against riders being on a resurfacer, other than the operator. The Zamboni ice resurfacer was designed and intended for use only as a special purpose machine and not as a recreational or promotional machine. The Zamboni Company’s warning labels, operating instructions, safety instructions and safety poster clearly state, “Do not permit riders on the Zamboni machine at any time” and “No Riders!” Any failure to adhere to the safety labels’ warnings, operating instructions and safety instructions must be considered a serious matter.
The Zamboni Company, joined by Ice Rink Industry groups would like to share their collective position regarding promotional activities such as “ice resurfacer school”, “driving class” and “resurfacer camp”.
Some of the reasons for Zamboni’s position in the regard, among others, are as follows:
- Proximity of dangerous moving parts and augers.
- Proximity to very hot hydraulic oil lines and tank.
- Uncertain protection against obstructions, slip-and-fall, etc.
- Distraction of the driver from his primary responsibility.
- Operator visibility.
- Risks of injury.
For these reasons, Zamboni does not approve of and will not be responsible for any injury, death or property damage that might result from any unapproved use or of any unauthorized modification of the machine that would permit a rider to be on the machine. In addition, be advised that all parties involved with the promotion of an additional rider or riders on a Zamboni ice resurfacer could be exposed to third party liability due to the general public’s exposure to such a promotion.
Be aware that the installation of a second seat raises other safety matters such as enhanced operator training, safety and warning instructions, additional operator responsibilities and the need for supplemental insurance coverage, etc.
Should you require additional information, please feel free to contact your Zamboni Authorized Distributor or The Zamboni Company directly.
The Zamboni Company has a long-standing concern about air quality and emissions in ice rinks, and we have been at the forefront of building electric and alternate fueled vehicles since the late 1970’s. We’re confident that our machines if properly maintained can continue to operate in a safe manner even after many years of use.
The machines built today by the Zamboni Company are almost exclusively alternative fuel powered, using propane and natural gas engines or electric power. All of our machine models provide a clean option and they allow a “green” choice for arena operators, based on their specific needs.
However, with respect to older machines, just as in the automobile industry the responsibility for maintenance rightly belongs to the owner of the vehicle. Even with proper maintenance, there can never be an elimination of indoor air ventilation and regular testing of the air quality inside all rinks is critical, no matter the age of the machine.
The Zamboni Company and their Zamboni Authorized Distributors provide a network of support and information for owners of Zamboni® ice resurfacing machines. Operations manuals, safety information and maintenance information relating to our products is available to owners of new and older model machines. Zamboni Customer Service and our Authorized Distributors can assist with Zamboni Authentic Parts and Service. Contact information is located in the “Contact” section of this web site.
The United States Ice Rink Association has compiled important reference material regarding air quality in ice rinks which we encourage you to review. You can find it on their website via this link: USIRA website
The Ontario Recreation Facilities Association Inc. has created guidelines for indoor air quality in Arenas. Please download the PDF below to review.
The Zamboni Company provides machine owners with information regarding the safe and proper operation and maintenance of its products. All safety and operations reference materials should be posted properly and made available to operators for their review on a regular basis. Replacement materials are available from your Zamboni Authorized Distributor or Zamboni Customer Service. Zamboni ice resurfacing machines have detailed instructions in both the manual and on the factory installed warning labels. The safety materials which are now online were formerly mailed to known owners of our products. Please register your machine to download and share these documents with your entire ice maintenance/machine service staff.
The snow tank light illuminates the tank to provide the operator with better visibility while monitoring the snow tank capacity during resurfacing.
The non-stick snow tank liner ensures a quick release of the snow tank contents. Available for Model 446, Model 526 and Model 650.
Hydraulic Oil Cooler Kit
Designed with the operator in mind, our premium seat has optimal adjustability. Optional armrest and seatbelt.
The Zamboni Company provides resources for owners of Zamboni® ice resurfacers and other Zamboni products. If you need access to your machine service manual, parts list, and safety information, please register for the Zamboni Owners Area.

Request Replacement Safety Labels
It is important for the safe and proper operation of your machine that you make sure the safety labels are visible and legible. If your machine’s safety labels are missing, damaged or painted over, a replacement set of the labels can be sent to your arena at no cost. Safety labels in a number of languages besides English (as well as bi-lingual for Canadian customers) are also available. Please fill out the form below.
Integrated Auger Washout System™
simplifies the vertical and horizontal auger washout task
The Zamboni Integrated Auger Washout System™ simplifies the vertical and horizontal auger washout task, from a single point on the machine’s conditioner. Operators can select the single or dual auger washout, affording significant time savings and a safer washout process.
The direct water streams are designed to efficiently and thoroughly wash away snow and slush from the augers without having to lift the snow tank or to remove safety guards. The powerful top-down washout saves resources with its accurate distribution of water, targeting snow accumulated in the conditioner and vertical auger housing.
Made with corrosion-resistant brass, stainless and aluminum parts, the Integrated Auger Washout System™ is built to stand the test of time, providing a safer and more efficient process.
The system is available on ALL new full sized resurfacers and can be purchased as a kit to install on any existing 500 Series machine.
