[Litchfield, MN] – One of the leading trailer and truck body builders in the U.S. is improving efficiency and safety by installing a high-performance 12-volt vibration unit on virtually all of its dump bodies. Located at the center front on the underside of the body, the powerful vibrator helps quickly release sticky materials, avoiding the need to raise the body to its steepest angle, or to do sudden start/stops to release stubborn loads. Easier dumping also avoids the temptation for workers to attempt cleaning out the bed with a shovel or other tools, helping to keep them out of harm’s way.
“The vibrator is installed in the finishing stage, utilizing the mount and bolts supplied by Martin,” Erickson said. “We generally use the wiring harness and push-button activation switch that are supplied with the unit, but if a customer is purchasing electronic hydraulic controls, we can use a switch in that console.” While most of the Towmaster designs have the vibrator mounted at the center front underside, certain designs require that they be located on the front of the body or on one of the longsills.
