Remove Packed Hopper Debris With Vibrator

From Frank Romeguera of Physical Plant Services for the University of New Orleans:

Adding a 12 volt vibrator to the bottom of your hopper can be of real assistance in removing caked-on debris. I use a Vibco model DC-1600 on our Supervac 343 and have been very pleased with the results.


Editor's Note: Since we received this Tip, most sweeper manufacturers have started offering hopper vibrators as an option. If this has been a problem for you previously, ask your sweeper salesperson about the suitability of adding a vibrator for your next sweeper.

Have an idea that would be helpful to others in the industry? Please let us know what it is.
