T1155 Trencher

Trencher - Pipeline | Vermeer T1155 Trencher
The T1155 COMMANDER® 3 is the perfect trenching machine to penetrate rock. It’s the ideal combination of heavy-duty construction, 540 hp (402.7 kW) from the turbocharged Caterpillar C15 ACERT Tier 3 engine, and sophisticated electronics.

Features and Benefits
