The T1655 terrain leveler surface excavation machine weights 200 tons and stands 22 feet high. It is 44 feet long and 21 feet wide, specifically designed for precision surface mining, Vermeer says. The TEC Plus display allows the T1655 to communicate with the various control modules situated throughout the machine, as well as the engine. The TEC Plus display allows the operator to easily monitor and control machine functions and improves the onboard diagnostic capabilities. An air-ride suspension system has been added, and the enclosed cab features a filtered air system, dual heating/cooling systems, sound attenuating foam, as well as dual full suspension seats for optimum operator comfort and training. The drive motors are attached directly to the cutter drum. It is located on the rear of the machine, allowing the drum to cut material while the tracks remain on uncut ground so as not to spoil the excavated material. Dual hydrostatic tracks provide independent rotation in either direction. Two Cat C18 ACERT engines provide a total of 1,200 horsepower.
