T1255 Trencher

T1255 Trencher

The heavy-duty T1255 COMMANDER® 3 from Vermeer provides the trench digging power needed to cut through solid rock for large-diameter applications. Featuring a Caterpillar C18 ACERT Tier 3 engine with 600 hp (447 kW) this heavy-duty trencher can handle cross-country digs.


Features and Benefits

  • Heavy duty trencher handles pipeline projects with high-volume spoil removal through an extra-wide 36” (91cm) dirt conveyor opening.
  • Increase digging chain life with features such as high-alloy bottom trencher boom wear strips and optional boom-top rollers.
  • Solid rock trenching is more effective than ever with less wear due to its low-speed, high-torque, splined headshaft motor.
  • Vermeer Vantage Track Extended Care Service Program offers an optional 3-year/3,000-hour or 5-year/5,000-hour heavy equipment warranty on the components of the closed loop hydrostatic system.
  • Vermeer dealers offer comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
