S450TX Mini Skid Steer

Whether it’s on a commercial worksite or home project, the S450TX can maneuver in and out of small spaces with ease. Featuring a 500 lb (226.8 kg) SAE-rated operating capacity and a tipping capacity of 1430 lb (648.6 kg), the S450TX is well-suited to both the needs of the rental customer and landscape contractor. The Kubota 24.8-horsepower (18.2 kW) diesel engine provides excellent torque performance and is designed for those who use attachments requiring greater engine torque. What’s more, the S450TX is track-driven, with a spring-cushioned operator platform for added safety and comfort. Versatile and equipped with a 6’ (1.8 m) dump height, this mini skid steer saves labor and time.

Features and benefits

  • The single, pilot-operated joystick offers the operator a smooth range of operation without balancing the engagement of two separate controls.
  • The S450TX has both a wide [9” (22.9 cm)] track and narrow [7” (17.8 cm)] track available. The 7” (17.8 cm) track offers the customer a narrow footprint that can easily access traditional 36” (91.4 cm) gate entrances, while the 9” (22.9 cm) track offers reduced ground pressure for increased flotation.
  • Rear panel provides access to important components such as the radiator, electrical system and hydraulic valves for routine maintenance and service.
  • The undercarriage features a high track-mounted sprocket, reducing premature wear/tear on sprocket from rocky soil conditions, while the ADI cast sprocket is heat-treated for longer life. The higher mounting and heat treating allow for a longer-lived sprocket and lower cost of operation. 
  •  Limited-time 0% financing for 24 months on all mini skid steer models, including CTX50, S450TX, S725TXand S800TX, available through May 31, 2016. Now’s the chance to equip your crew with the proven performance of industry-leading Vermeer equipment. Valid in the United States and Canada only. Learn more.
