Formerly only with rubber tires, Vermeer's 120-hp ride-on trencher is also available with a quad-track design that maximizes traction and stability by maintaining four-point ground contact and providing full power to each of the four tracks. The RTX1250 has no break-over point, which improves operator comfort and control. At the same time, remaining functional are the ground drive features available on rubber-tire units, such as axle oscillation, four-wheel steering and crab steering. The unit is able to trench to a depth of 72 inches and a width of 18 inches. Estimated list price: $100,000 to $130,000.
