Snap that core in your rubber casing? Replace your shaft core in no time with grease!
From time to time when using a Wyco concrete vibrator the actual core inside the rubber casing can snap in half. There are a bunch of reasons why this might happen including a kink in the shaft, too much of a bend near the head and even over heating when the shaft runs out of grease. If the Wyco flex shaft outer casing is in good shape then you should just be able to purchase a new steel gore, grease it thoroughly and slide it right into the old shaft. This process would take no more than 5 minutes to complete.
JUST BE SURE that there is no worn or kinked spots on the original shaft. An exposed burr inside of the old Wyco flex shaft can make the new core heat up and snap in just minutes.It is easy to spot a worn spot and the factory cannot warranty these issue types. If you feel this could happen we suggest you just purchase a new shaft and core assembly.
Wyco Vibrator Head types?
So which is it - steel or rubber coated vibrator heads? We can help!
Wyco concrete vibrator heads are available in a few different styles. Plain steel heads, short heads and rubber coated vibrator heads. Here are some examples of the Wyco heads to consider. You would use a regular steel head for post concrete pours out there with or without rebar on site. The benefit of a short style rebar vibrator head from Wyco is to use in pour that are as shallow as 6" deep. A vibrator head MUST stay submerged in the wet concrete to stay cool or it will burn up the bearings inside seizing it. A rubber coated head is intended for use with epoxy coated rebar on;y. This will prevent the head from damaging the epoxy coating causing rust.
Contractor Note: Only get a head and shaft for the shortest length needed. This will help control the unit onsite and make your Wyco cement vibrator easier to use effectively.
