Vermeer Introduces Pedestrian Trencher

Updated Apr 3, 2013


Vermeer has introduced a model into its pedestrian trencher product line. The RTX250 is a rubber-tracked, steerable, pedestrian trencher that is designed for the needs of rental businesses and utility contractors.

The RTX250 uses a 27-horsepower Kohler electronic fuel injected (EFI) gas engine, and it digs 8-inch-wide trenches up to 48 inches in depth. This trencher has a two-handlebar VZ steering system and a dedicated platform.

The rubber track system is designed to minimize ground pressure. The undercarriage is designed for traction in tough soil conditions, while keeping speed and stability constant. The unit is 35.5 inches in width — a small footprint for maneuvering in tight areas, such as residential yards and congested jobsites.

Vermeer has recently introduced the Kohler EFI gas engine platform into its utility product line.

The RTX250 unit is designed to trench in difficult conditions while maintaining optimal performance. It is designed for simplified maintenance with easy access to all serviceable components. The design means no tools are required to access certain maintenance points. The high mount-track design reduces sprocket maintenance. Outboard bearing support provides greater protection for the head shaft when the trencher meets rock and tough soil, which helps to lower the cost of operation.
