T955 Trencher

To cut through the most difficult rock trenching conditions around, Vermeer offers the T955 COMMANDER® 3. Equipped with a Caterpillar C13 ACERT Tier 3 turbocharged diesel engine, the T955 boasts 415 hp (309.5 kW). Due to the high torque rise engine, when you encounter tough trench digging conditions, the engine speed drops, increasing the torque for more power to pull through. With a rugged D6 track chain and a sectionalized trencher boom allowing customized trench depths, the T955 also brings heavy equipment strength and versatility to your construction site.

Features and benefits

  • Use the trenching machine more effectively with less wear due to its low-speed, high torque, splined headshaft motor.
  • Decrease trencher teeth inspection and replacement maintenance time through an optional remote attachment control that can start or stop the engine, raise or lower the trencher boom and rotate chain at a slow speed.
  • Promote high-volume spoil removal with an extra-wide 30” (76.2 cm) dirt conveyor opening that helps reduce jamming.
  • Vermeer Vantage Track Extended Care Service Program offers an optional 3-year/3,000-hour or 5-year/5,000-hour heavy equipment warranty on the components of the closed loop hydrostatic system.
  • Vermeer dealers offer comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
