Overview

With the drive motor mounted directly to the cutter drum, it maximizes work efficiency and reduces wear costs associated with other types of transmissions. Hydraulic low-speed, high-torque motors on each side of the cutter head dish out more direct drive power for improved productivity. The direct drive attachment offers a maximum cutting depth of 21” (53.3 cm).

KEY FEATURES

  • Optional dust suppression system features an enclosed cutting head with two large vacuums to help reduce dust onsite.
  • SmartTEC control software displays the status of critical elements of machine performance.
  • Help improve efficiency through direct drive power while delivering more horsepower to the cutting drum.

On-board Dust Suppression System by Vermeer

Vermeer’s range of T1255 Terrain Leveler™ Surface Miners are compatible with the On-board Dust Suppression System by Vermeer. This additional feature is a must-have for all hard-rock and tunnelling job sites as it increases productivity and reduces overhead costs. The On-board Dust Suppression System by Vermeer:

  • Is hydraulically driven and features and left and right unit, which become part of the machine.
  • Reduces the need for an external power source or operator which in turn reduces the amount of diesel consumption, emissions and labour costs.
  • Uses a baghouse filtration system which requires minimal maintenance which will save time and costs.
  • Features superior manoeuvrability which means you can continue to work in confined or closed-in spaces.
  • Is also compatible with the T1255 Chain Drive Surface Miner which means you can use this system while cutting high walls.
