Truck Dumping

Guzzler Classic & Ace – Vibrator Safety Guidelines

Vac2Go Safety

The vibrator switch is used to help dump material out of the debris body by reducing the friction between the debris body and the material inside the tank. If used improperly, the vibrator can prevent material from dumping out of the tank. If used improperly, serious damage can be done to the vibrator and the vacuum truck.

Remember the following when using the vibrator.

  • Never turn the vibrator on while the debris body is in the down position.
  • Never raise the debris body before opening the rear door fully.
  • Never use the vibrator to “settle” the debris in the tank in order to fit more material into the tank.
  • Never run the vibrator for more than 30 seconds and always allow 60 seconds in between operation cycles.
  •  When possible, turn off as much electrical equipment as possible to provide the vibrator with adequate electrical power.
  • Always open the rear door before raising the debris body.
  • Always attempt to use the vibrator in short bursts of 5-10 seconds before running the vibrator for the full 30 seconds.
  • If the vibrator has been cycled 4 time (30 seconds on and 60 seconds off), utilize an alternate attempt to empty the debris body.
