Vibco's Sandbustertm to Keep Snow Budgets From Busting This Winter With an Economical Solution for Light Truck & SUV Snow Removal Operations

WYOMING, RI NOVEMBER 14, 2006. VIBCO Vibrators announces the release of the new SANDBUSTER(TM) Model DC-60 Spreader Hopper Vibrator. The DC-60 features a new durable, injection-molded plastic housing. This housing was developed as an alternative to expensive steel and cast-iron housings that can become corroded when exposed to ice control chemicals and other corrosive materials. The new DC-60 plastic housing is non-corrosive and can be used in wash-down environments. The SANDBUSTER(TM) DC-60 is designed for use on tailgate spreaders with a capacity of up to 1 cubic yard. A 12-volt heavy-duty DC motor drives the vibrator, creating 60 lbs of force and 3,600 vibrations per minute (VPM), with push-button operation from inside the cab.

The SANDBUSTER(TM) DC-60 Spreader Hopper Vibrator increases the efficiency and safety of road crews who spread ice control materials. The vibration of the SANDBUSTER(TM) keeps materials flowing consistently from the hopper and provides better road coverage. Additionally, by maintaining more consistent material rates, the risk of clogs in the hopper is greatly reduced, keeping the crew safely in the cab. Overall truck downtime is reduced, along with maintenance costs otherwise incurred by manual clearing of the hopper.

VIBCO offers other SANDBUSTER(TM) models for larger spreaders used on municipal and heavy-duty snow and ice control road equipment up to 10 cubic yards. VIBCO offers a free 10-day trial of any standard vibrator model, including the SANDBUSTER(TM) line of Spreader Hopper Vibrators.
