13 Dec Vermeer’s latest mini loader meets the needs of Australia’s contractors head on
Vermeer’s expansion of its range of compact and powerful mini loaders continues with the introduction of the new S925TX, a unit that combines impressive lifting and hydraulic capacity with narrow site access – and includes some subtle but effective enhancements.
“Landscapers, tree care contractors and rental operations are embracing Vermeer mini loaders to increase their daily productivity and reduce their crew’s fatigue and manual handling risk,” said David Franey, Compact Equipment Product Specialist at Vermeer. “With the S925TX model, we’ve designed a machine that can deliver a higher lifting performance than most other machines in the compact utility loader segment while still maintaining a compact size and impressive hydraulic attachment performance.” Featuring a rated operating capacity (SAE) of 419.6kg (925 lb) and a hinge pin height reach of 214.6cm, S925TX makes easy work of shifting and dumping heavy loads.
Its dual auxiliary system allows the operator to switch between high flow for ground-engaging attachments and low flow for maximum control, and a revised cockpit makes control of attachments even easier. Mr Franey said the new cockpit layout enhances what are already class leading ergonomics. “Side-by-side comparisons with competitor’s machines are always the most telling assessment of the ease of use of our mini loaders. Your average Vermeer user is productive within a matter of minutes, and experiences less fatigue over the course of the day.”
The S925TX mini loader is offered with two four-cylinder diesel engine options; a 18.6kW (24.8hp) Kubota V1505 or 26.1 kW (35.1hp) Kubota V1505 diesel.
The Vermeer S925TX mini loader will be available in Vermeer Australia dealerships from January 2018.
