Zero battery maintenance and lithium-ion power combine for the ultimate upgrade to the world’s most popular electric ice resurfacer.


Lithium-ion batteries provide the ability to quickly charge between resurfacings, maintaining power and eliminating the need for lengthy overnight recharging periods. Charge time is generally equivalent to work time. Recharge for about the same amount of time and you’re back on the ice.

The battery package is smaller and lighter weight. Zero-maintenance lithium-ion batteries are sealed and do not require watering. In addition to their improved resiliency and longer cycle life, lithium-ion batteries do not release gases during the recharging process and are emission-free.

AC motors and controls afford efficiencies and virtually eliminate associated maintenance. Microprocessor controlled chargers communicate directly with the battery pack to optimize cell balancing and charging. The result: longer battery life. Proven and dependable Sevcon® Gen4 controls are built for tough industrial applications. On-board diagnostics provide management of machine functions and status updates. Built to perform in the harsh environment it calls home, the Model 552AC Li-ion is a game-changing update to the most reliable electric resurfacer in the world.

ROBUST Drivetrain

Four-wheel drive. Rugged Dana Spicer® axles combine with a 24 HP traction motor, providing the most reliable drivetrain in the industry.

The redesigned hydraulic system provides optimum power and reduced energy consumption for smooth and consistent operation. 11 hp AC pump motor. Easy access high quality filters.

Over seventy years ago, Zamboni introduced the world’s first ice resurfacing machine. In the decades since, we’ve proven our position as the maker of the industry’s most reliable and efficient ice resurfacing machine.


Designed for the tough demands of an ice arena. Our machines are built by hand. One at a time. By skilled craftsmen dedicated to building the highest quality products in an industry known to put equipment to the test.

Robust welded steel tubing chassis contributes to the sound construction of the machine. The ergonomically designed operator’s compartment has well-placed controls. Vertical auger enclosure reduces operator area sound levels. Exceptional results from our unrivaled down pressure system which puts the power where you need it. Premium primer and paint, rust-free poly water tanks and stainless steel hardware afford corrosion resistance.

The 552AC provides an emission-free machine capable of handling the formidable challenges of ice maintenance. Zamboni ice resurfacers have a well-deserved reputation for producing the finest sheet of ice, even after many years of use.

Nothing else is even close.


Zamboni introduced the world’s first electric powered ice resurfacer in February of 1960. As battery technology evolved, the 500 Series included electric powered production machines. In 1990, the Model 552 immediately set the standard for electric resurfacing equipment, demonstrating its quality and reliability. The Model 552AC with a lithium-ion power package combines leading-edge electric performance and our industry-proven drivetrain, providing a low maintenance option for your high maintenance surface.

Clean Ice. Clean Air. Clear Choice.

Worldwide, more facility operators choose Zamboni for their ice resurfacing needs.
