When it comes to heavy-duty trenching, one name stands for performance and reliability on jobsites around the world: Vermeer. The T555 COMMANDER® 3 hydrostatic tractor is no exception. Equipped with innovative features, the T555 COMMANDER 3 tractor is ready for the most demanding trenching conditions.
Powered by a smooth-running John Deere 6068 HF Tier 3 diesel engine providing 185 hp (138 kW), the T555 COMMANDER 3 tractor is available with a 4', 5', 6' or 8' (1.2 m, 1.5 m, 1.8 m or 2.4 m) trencher boom capable of trenching widths up to 24' (61 cm).
The tractor is also available with a hydrostatic rockwheel attachment which is able to cut depths up to 36' (91.4 cm) in some of the toughest rock conditions. Designed for quick access to the engine and pump drive during attachment changeover, the T555 COMMANDER 3 tractor is equipped with a modular power pack.
Optional auto-tilt track utilizes an oscillating track frame that allows the track to follow the ground’s contour, ensuring a vertical trench on slopes up to 10 degrees. Plus, the Vermeerexclusive linkage design eliminates binding and improves depth control so operators can attack hills and slopes as never before.
TEC 2000® Trencher Electronic Control. This exclusive Vermeer system integrates separate, stand-alone components into a few simple controls. It automatically adjusts the tractor to varying conditions and equalizes track speed for straight tracking in both directions, in all speed ranges. It also monitors trenching operations and displays useful data on an LCD readout. Machine system conditions are monitored to simplify troubleshooting; valuable maintenance data is logged.
The hydrostatic rockwheel attachment features the ability to cut a trench up to 36' (91.4 cm) in depth and 6' (15.2 cm) in width. The attachment is powered by a hydrostatic motor that powers through some of the toughest rock conditions.
