Vermeer Terrain Leveler surface excavation machines deliver more than rock-penetrating power.

When you’re demolishing a road, prepping a site for new construction/reconstruction or surface mining, Vermeer has the features you need to get the job done fast and efficiently. Depending on the model, the Vermeer Terrain Leveler machines can cut an area up to 15’/4.6 m wide and up to 32”/81.2 cm deep in a single pass.

Plus with this machine, you’ll get consistent material; reducing the need for primary crushers, large loaders, large haul trucks and the associated permits to transport material to crushers. No permits for blasting and end material is transportable by regular highway trucks.

When noise, dust or blasting restrictions stand in the way, the Vermeer Terrain Leveler surface excavation machine (SEM) is ready to help keep your operation productive. That productivity starts with a specialized team at the Vermeer Rock Lab, who tests rock and utilizes a solutions calculator to estimate machine production rates and costs of operation. With thousands of core samples tested and surface miners working in a variety of materials around the world today, Vermeer has the expertise to help you be more productive.

Additionally because the Terrain Leveler drum is an attachment, you can switch it out with relative ease. Replace it with a trencher cutting boom to perform work on mainline sewer and water applications or even pipeline projects.


T1255 Single Side Attachment | Vermeer Mining Equipment

The T1255 Commander® 3 direct drive Terrain Leveler® SEM with single-sided attachment packs the power you need to take on tough civil and surface mining projects. The unique attachment allows the operator to cut an 80-degree high wall and produces less noise, dust and vibration – helping mines to increase production by excavating reserves they might not otherwise get to due to drill and blast restrictions, air quality regulations or urban encroachment.
