On jobsites around the world, contractors depend on one name for heavy-duty rock trenching: Vermeer®. For projects requiring high horsepower and deep digging depths, Vermeer offers the T1055 COMMANDER® 3. Powered by a Caterpillar C13 ACERT Tier 3 engine generating 415 hp (309.5 kW), the T1055 features a Rotary Power headshaft motor to produce high torque for tough trenching situations.

The T1055 is equipped with the new TEC® Plus electronic control system, designed for improved diagnostic capabilities and to increase performance by enhancing machine controllability. Additionally, a standard, pressurized and climate-controlled cab enhances operator comfort and is elevated for exceptional visibility.

For maximum versatility, the T1055 COMMANDER 3 tractor unit is also available with the Terrain Leveler® surface excavation attachment for site prep, surface mining and soil remediation applications.

A 415 hp (309.5 kW) Caterpillar Tier 3 engine provides the raw power needed to triumph over tough rock-trenching projects. The engine is emissionized and features high torque rise, allowing engine rpm to recover rapidly in situations that demand increased power.

A Rotary Power headshaft and splined headshaft produce lower speed and higher torque, providing superior rock penetration and low chain wear for better production results.

The new TEC Plus electronic control system features CAN bus technology, which utilizes multiple control modules located throughout the machine for real-time performance data and advanced troubleshooting capabilities.
