Rubber Tire Trenchers: Vermeer RTX550

December 2009 Vol. 64 No. 12

The new Vermeer RTX550 is the only 65-hp utility tractor available with an innovative rubber quad-track system, which provides increased tractive effort and maneuverability, greater stability and decreased surface and turf damage. This new offering also features the Vermeer-exclusive TrenchSense electronic control system that monitors engine rpm and automatically reacts when a sudden drop is detected to prevent stall or engine stop. The RTX550 fills an important niche, especially for secondary, shorter-run utility service installations where confined space is often a concern. 888.837.6337, www.vermeer.com
