Do you like them? Approximate cost? Kansas or Nebraska dealers?

well i have a martin vibrator that sucks up to any were on the hopper. Its alright you move it any were. But for what the price of it is to me it's not worth it. I like to permanent mounted vibrators cause when you are trying to get ddg off you need to stand by it cause if you don't when it runs out of air it will fall to the ground. I can't remember what the price was exactly seems to me around 1200.00 And to me it doesn't do any better job than the mounted vibrators do. And you don't have to drag air hose out every time either To hook up.

I paid $1350 about for mine, I like it better than one that is mounted , yes if runs out of air will fall off, just order extra mufflers for it cause when it does come off they brake but still for DDGs I think it is the best to use, now you have one for one against ???

I have two. Don't run out of air very often, so falling off it not an issue for me. Most of the places I deliver at have air available. I like I can put them in when I'm hauling ingredients. Leave them out when I'm just hauling grains., weight is weight. I put them on the front and rear of the hopper bottoms to shake, then bang in the knock rails. It really unloads fast. I seem to be having less issue with these than the ones that stays attached to the trailer. It seems like the calcium from the winter really messes with the perminatly mounted vibrators. Just my take.

I have a martin vibrator that i can move to different pockets and I keep it in the truck so it works better. Road junk kills vibrators. Take the muffler off it and let it rattle. I had a fellow complain once that my vibrator knocked his papers off his desk
