Features & Benefits

Four-bar linkage

Maximizes cutting width because a unique four-bar linkage moves the cutter wheel away from the machine as the boom drops.

Compact footprint

Get into tight spots with side-mounted controls that are easy to reach, and an auxiliary control station that lets the operator lead or follow the machine through narrow confines.

Easy maintenance access

Reduce maintenance time through features like hinged doors and removable panels that give you easy access to service pumps. 

Confidence Plus® asset protection program

Add Confidence Plus® asset protection program in your initial purchase or add it anytime within the standard one-year warranty period. When you finance your maintenance expenses, you can know and plan for a fixed cost upfront. Check with your local Vermeer dealer for specific model availability.
