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 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 through our corporate offices. Later model machines have detailed instructions in both the manual and on the factory installed warning labels. We have mailed updated instructions and warning labels to all known owners of older units. These labels are available at no charge.
If you have a machine with its warning labels removed, obstructed or painted over, we encourage you to contact us and we will send replacements.
