Skid-Steer Loaders & Attachments: Vermeer S400TX

August 2009 Vol. 64 No. 8

The new Vermeer S400TX mini skid steer, designed for rental and landscape contractors, features a 23-hp gas engine which produces 15 percent more horsepower than competitive models.

Two joysticks, which control transport and boom/bucket motion, can be operated while holding onto an integrated hand-grip bar. The location of the joysticks and the hand-grip bar help the operator to maintain control of the machine and maintain their balance. Ground drive is controlled by a single joystick, and provides a smooth range of motion while operating the unit. The S400TX produces only 3.8 psi ground pressure and a hydraulic flow rate of 11.5 gpm. The S400TX delivers a tipping capacity of 1,430 pounds with a rated operating capacity of 500 pounds and a maximum 69 inches lifting height. 888.837.6337, www.vermeer.com
