Vermeer FTX25 Footings Trencher

Vermeer has introduced the FTX25 — a stand-on, track- mounted trencher built to dig footings up to 26 inches (66 cm) deep and up to 12 inches (30.48 cm) wide for residential concrete slab installations. This machine offer two boom lengths — 20 inch (50.8 cm) or 26 inch (66 cm) — and can cut a footing trench up to 12 inches (30.5 cm) in width. A variable-position boom can be offset up to 2 inches (5.1 cm) outside the track undercarriage, allowing the operator to trench flush with the footing backer or form board. The trenching boom can be easily repositioned to a center-mount position to accommodate other trenching applications, such as utility and irrigation installations. 

Features and Benefits

  • The FTX25 uses welded cutter spacers making it easier to change from 8", 10" or 12" (20.3 cm, 25.4 cm or 30.5 cm) cutting width and back without having to remove several spacer blocks
  • The proven design from compact utility loaders, allows for common components. High-mounted track sprocket design helps eliminate sprocket wear caused by ground service engagement and keeps the sprocket and motor up out of the dirt, mud and debris
  • No tools are required to access routine service points, the engine, and other critical components that are strategically placed on the machine for convenient maintenance
  • Add Confidence Plus® Asset Protection Program in your initial purchase or add it anytime within the standard one-year warranty period. When you finance your maintenance expenses, you can know and plan for a fixed cost upfront. Check with your local Vermeer dealer for specific model availability. 
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts
