MARTIN® MT-FAST™ Hopper Trailer Vibrator

Hopper Bottom Trailer Vibrators

All New & Patented!

Hauling DDG, grains, or other difficult-to-unload materials in your hopper trailer can increase unloading time, create opportunities for operator injury, and potentially damage your equipment.

Introducing the MT-FAST™ Hopper Trailer Vibrator

A non-impacting linear vibrator that instantly attaches anywhere on the truck bed, the MT-FAST™ Vibrator has been proven to empty trailers quickly and completely, allowing even the most stubborn materials to flow more easily. With the MT-FAST™ Vibrator in place, drivers can empty large loads without having to hammer on the hopper walls to dislodge stuck-on material.

Weighing in at less than 10 lbs., the unit can be positioned strategically, right at the problem area, ensuring optimal material flow, unlike permanently mounted vibrators.  Despite its light weight and portability, the vibrator packs 200 linear lbs. of force and can move even the most difficult materials. The MT-FAST™ Vibrator uses the rig’s own air supply (less than 15 CFM required) – a unique patented feature (US Patent No. 9,499,085). The low-frequency, high-amplitude vibrator is best suited for low-density materials, like grain and meal. Operators can adjust the amplitude on the unit to suit specific needs, while the frequency is factory-set for optimal results.

Case Studies


Case Study: Reduce Truck Unload Time with MT-FAST™ Vibrator

Problem

A Minnesota-based grain hauler was having trouble emptying his trailer completely due to low-density grains and meal settling in the crevices of the hopper. Often times, the truck operator would have to manually dislodge the stubborn material by getting under the trap and hammering on the hopper walls.

Situation

Joe Virnig, a driver for Foltz Trucking, has been driving a grain hauler for many years. On several occasions, Virnig has had to manually dislodge settled or stuck-on grain material from the hopper in order to completely empty a load. After a particularly troublesome delivery that required 6-hours of labor and a call to dispatch for more assistance, Virnig decided to do some research on vacuum-mounted truck vibrators. He discovered that Martin Vibration Systems had a newly-designed product coming out of R&D and agreed to test it.

Solution

After Virnig’s initial testing, Martin tweaked the original design and created what is now known as the MT- FAST™ Hopper Trailer Vibrator. The portable vibrator attaches anywhere on the truck bed using a VAC-MOUNT™ System, which means it can be positioned wherever force is needed. After using the MT- FAST™ Vibrator for a year, Virnig has reduced his unload times, cut down on unproductive time, and improved the safety of his operation.
