The DirtWhacker Difference

The DirtWhacker Primary Belt Cleaner

Each of the modules that make up the scraper is based on a 4-greased-joint parallelogram.

– A rubber tube is threaded through the parallelograms to form a bladder in which air pressure can be both applied and adjusted using a foot pump.

– The parallelogram bottom part is welded to a fixed base.

– The side opposite, on which the blade is bolted, is mobile and is able to move tangentially to the belt (as a pantograph would) as a function of the air pressure in the rubber bladder and thus the wear of the blade.

– Each blade operates independently of the other blades as a function of what it receives; the angle of attack remains constant at 90° whatever its position.

– The scraper element is made up of a non-bevelled straight section tungsten carbide blade within a mild steel protection sandwich: total thickness between 6 and 8 mm.


  • The cleaner blades are designed to bring about minimal belt wear to the belt top-cover
  • The innovative parallelogram design maintain the optimal belt blade angle irrespective of Blade wear
  • The air bladder system ensures even blade to belt pressure over the full cleaner width
  • The blade design is compatible with the majority of mechanical belt fasteners
  • The unit requires no mechanical adjustment in between blade changes
  • At all times there is a visual indication of belt to blade pressure
  • The belt to blade pressure can be adjusted from a suitable remote location
