    I have a vee pro 8000 and the switch was dead for the vibrator. I replaced the switch and worked great. Now I go to use it and the switch blinks and beeps at me. What are your fellas thoughts or/and expirences with this? How long would a vibrator last? Its an 05 or 06

    While the switch is on goto the

    back and wiggleboth the connectors, had similiar issue with mine, and it landed up being a poor connection.

    Good luck.

    what I would do first is unplug the vib at the salter and run a power and ground just to see if the vibrator works
    On another note, Have you ever had a problem with bulk salt not sliding down the hopper toward the auger? I have the same salter and last season was my first time using it , the auger would clear every thing on top of it but I would have to take a shovel and pull it toward the back of the hopper. The vibrator didn't seem to make much of a difference unless the hopper was almost empty

    that's what I was thinking, snowex mounts the second vibrator on the back under the tail light as part of the optimal flow kit but I don't think that would help. I wounder if that's why they stopped making the v pro 8000
