Vermeer T655 Commander 3


showcase-vermeer-t655The T655 Commander 3 tractor, manufactured by Vermeer, offers an optional trencher or bucket wheel attachment designed for the installation of small-diameter cross-country pipelines and helps increase productivity in soft soils.

The Tier 3 John Deere 6090 HF diesel engine provides 250 hp and the power to dig up to 8 ft deep. The optional trencher attached provides the ability to cut trenches from 10.5 to 26 in. wide, whereas the bucket wheel attachment cuts trenches from 22 to 28 in. wide. Low-speed, high torque splined headshaft motor improves cutting performance and minimizes chain wear, while the exclusive Vermeer TEC Plus electronic control system monitors real-time machine performance.

In addition to providing better boom visibility, the operator’s platform is equipped with a rollover protective structure (ROPS) for enhanced operator safety.

An optional 8- or 12-ft conveyor, with 24-in. wide belts, allow the operator remove more spoil from the trench and deposit it farther from the machine when using larger boom/cutter combinations.
