Dual Cat engines deliver 1200 hp (895 kW) to the machine. The cab, equipped with the TEC® Plus computer-aided control system, allows the T1655III Terrain Leveler® SEM to communicate with the various control modules located throughout the machine. While the machine is performing, the air ride suspension system on the cab provides a smooth, quiet ride for the operator in the typically harsh environment of a mining operation. It also features a filtered air system, dual self-contained cooling and heating systems, sound-attenuating foam as well as dual air ride suspension seats for optimum operator and trainer comfort.

Features & Benefits

Patented tilt attachment

The patented tilt attachment tilts 5 degrees in either direction allowing for cutting to grade and a smooth pit floor.

Improved efficiencies

Drive motors attached directly to the cutter drum improve efficiencies and reduce wear costs associated with chain, sprocket and belt transmissions.

Top-down cutting

Top-down cutting, as developed by Vermeer, allows the cutter teeth to gain penetration without using the machine’s tractive effort to drive the teeth into the material.

SmartTEC electronic control system

SmartTEC performance monitoring assists operators with adjustments to machine controls to help improve efficiency and tracks the operational performance of the machine on a consistent platform across all machine models.

Vantage track

Relax in the confidence that your investment is protected and your enture closed-loop hydrostatic system is covered with either an optional 3-year/3000 or 5-year/5000 hour extended care service program.

Mobility and stability

The T1655III dual tracks and low center of gravity allow for maneuverability and stability over the changing and diverse surface conditions.
