The Vermeer T1255III Direct Drive Terrain Leveler surface excavation machine combines raw cutting productivity with the ability to carefully extract what you’re after, according to the company.
With the drive motor mounted directly to the cutter drum, it maximizes work efficiency and reduces wear costs associated with other types of transmissions. Hydraulic low-speed, high-torque motors on each side of the cutter head dish out more direct drive power for improved productivity.
The direct drive attachment offers a maximum cutting depth of 21-in. (53.3 cm). The T1255III also features dual independent hydrostatic tracks to allow counter-rotation, meaning the machine can quickly reposition 180 degrees in either direction for the next cut.
The Vermeer innovative Terrain Leveler surface excavation machines can work where explosives can’t, with top-down cutting that lets you reach valuable mineral seams and get the most product out of the ground as possible.
