Efficiently conduct surface mining extraction, remove ground surface, or create a smooth, level area for site preparation, road construction or soil remediation with the T1255III Terrain Leveler® SEM chain drive attachment. When you need to get in and extract material close to the high wall, this attachment gives you the capability to cut along a vertical high wall. It has a maximum cutting depth of 27 in (68.6 cm). The chains are driven by low-speed, high-torque hydrostatic motors.

Features & Benefits

Remote attachment control (RAC)

The T1255III Terrain Leveler® SEM's optional RAC allows the operator to remotely start and stop the engine, raise/lower the boom and slowly rotate the chain to observe the cutters while standing away from the digging chain during maintenance or service.

TEC Plus computer-aided control system

Monitor your surface leveler with the exclusive Vermeer TEC® Plus computer-aided control system that communicates with various control modules throughout the machine.

Load control

Load control allows the machine to automatically adjust ground speed to use full engine horsepower, thus maximizing productivity.

Elevated, climate-controlled cab

The elevating cab allows superior visibility and added comfort with the air ride seat. The sealed cab has self-contained heating and air conditioning with sound-attenuating foam. It is also a rollover module (ROM).

High wall capacity

Using a single-drive motor to power the drum allows for the ability to cut an 80-degree high wall compared to the 45-degree high wall when using the dual drive attachment.

Optional heavy equipment warranty

Vermeer Vantage Track Extended Care Service Program offers an optional 3-year/3000-hour or 5-year/5000-hour heavy equipment warranty on the components of the closed-loop hydrostatic system.
