New Vermeer S650TX mini skid steer features four pump hydraulic system

Enhances attachment performance; helps increase overall productivity


Vermeer has announced the newest addition to their family of high-performance, labor-saving mini skid steers — the S650TX — featuring a four pump hydraulic system that delivers hydraulic fluid flow of 13.75 gallons per minute (52 L). The additional capacity of the four pump hydraulic configuration helps enhance attachment performance and increase operational efficiency.

An innovative frame design with idler positioned close to the front attachment plate improves overall lifting capacity and reduces overall machine weight, avoiding the need for additional counterweights at the rear of the machine. With tipping capacity of 1890 pounds (857.3 kg) and rated operating capacity (SAE) of 660 pounds (299.4 kg), users are able to accommodate heavier loads using the S650TX, helping advance productivity.

“Weʼve developed the new S650TX with several features that are designed to enhance overall machine performance,” said Jon Kuyers, utility products segment manager for Vermeer. “The four pump hydraulic system provides greater fluid flow, which contributes to more efficient operation of attachments. The single pilot-operated joystick allows for a smooth range of operation without the user having to balance the engagement of two separate controls.”

The S650TX is equipped with a 24.8 hp (18.5 kW) Kubota D1105-ET03 diesel engine and is available with either a 7- or 9-inch (17.8 or 22.9 cm) rubber tracks. The machine measures 91.5 inches (232.4 cm) in length when outfitted with a standard bucket.

Operators will appreciate the spring-cushioned platform that keeps them out of mud and debris. As with all Vermeer mini skid steers, the S650TX is equipped with an operator presence system that suspends ground drive and attachment motion if the operator steps off the machine.

A universal mounting plate helps extend the functionality of the S650TX, making it compatible with several labor-saving attachments, all suitable for performing a wide range of tasks.
