Vermeer RTX250

June 2013, Vol. 68, No. 6

The RTX250 is a rubber-tracked, steerable pedestrian trencher that is designed for the needs of rental businesses and utility contractors.

The RTX250 uses a 27-hp Kohler electronic fuel injected gas engine that delivers more power over competitive models to dig 8-inch wide trenches up to 48 inches in depth. This trencher is simple to operate with a two-handlebar VZ steering system that allows easy mobility and operation without the need for numerous joysticks or significant operator training. A dedicated platform means additional counterweights are not necessary in order for the unit to trench properly and maintain proper balance.

The dedicated rubber track system is designed to minimize ground pressure. The undercarriage is designed for traction in tough soil conditions while keeping speed and stability constant. The unit is 35.5 inches in width — a small footprint for maneuvering in tight areas, such as residential yards and congested jobsites. 641.628.3141, vermeer.com
