Features & Benefits

TEC® Plus computer-aided control system

Keep your construction site running smoothly with the exclusive Vermeer TEC® Plus computer-aided control system.

Optional sectionalized bridge and trencher booms

Adjust to various trench depths with optional sectionalized bridge and trencher booms.

Optional remote attachment control

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.

Elevated cab

Enhance productivity with an elevated cab providing a better view of the boom, trench and conveyor.

Rotary power trencher drive motor

A rotary power trencher drive motor and splined headshaft produce a lower speed and higher torque which provide superior ground penetration and low chain wear for better production results.

Optional 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.
