Vermeer RTX1250 ride-on trencherThe Vermeer RTX1250 ride-on trencher, equipped with four track modules, is designed for use in applications requiring enhanced traction, stability and flotation. The “quad track” system replaces the standard RT1250’s rubber tires, but retains its counterpart’s ground-drive features, such as axle oscillation and four-corner steering and crab steering. The RTX1250, using a 120-hp Cummins diesel engine, can trench to depths of 72 inches and to widths of 18 inches. The unit also can pull vibratory-plow blades to 36 inches. Attachments include center-mounted trencher, hydrostatic plow, rock wheel and backhoe. A six-way backfill blade allows backfilling and finishing work. (Vermeer has an exclusive agreement with Loegering Manufacturing for the RTX1250’s track design.)
