PELLA, Iowa — The Vermeer S725TX compact utility loader has been honored with an Editor’s Choice Award from Rental magazine. Products were chosen by the Rental editorial staff based on their innovation, relevance to the industry and the number of visitors who engaged with S725TX content posted on ForConstructionPros.com/Rental over a 12-month period.
The S725TX empowers landscape and tree care contractors to move heavy materials more efficiently. Because the compact utility loader can be used to transport hardscaping materials, load large branches into a brush chipper or stack oversized logs into a truck or trailer, it can help reduce the amount of physical labor required from the crew and free up workers to tackle other jobsite activities.
“Based on market feedback, landscape and tree care contractors around the country are struggling to find and retain qualified employees because of the labor-intensive nature of the work,” said Matt Hutchinson, product manager – Tree Care, Rental and Landscape, at Vermeer. “The S725TX compact utility loader can help crews be more productive and reduce the amount of physical exertion, which in turn, should provide more job satisfaction.”
The S725TX radial lift compact utility loader has a 750-pound (340.2 kg) SAE-rated operating capacity and a 2,145-pound (973 kg) tipping capacity. It has a hinge pin lift height of 84.5 inches (214.6 cm), and is powered by a 24.8-horsepower (18.2 kW) Kubota V1505-E4B Tier 4 Final diesel engine.
Like other models in the Vermeer compact utility loader lineup, the S725TX features a chariot-style, ride-on platform. The enhanced operator’s station features a single, pilot-operated joystick for smoother operation. The spring-cushioned platform keeps operators out of the mud and debris and provides additional support when working in rough terrain. The platform gives operators a good vantage point for viewing attachments during operation. The operator presence system is integrated into the platform, in which the ground drive and attachment motion is suspended if the operator steps off the machine.
