The RTX150 is the newest member of the Vermeer pedestrian trencher lineup. Powered by a 20-horsepower (14.9 kilowatt) Kohler gas engine, this machine offers 68 percent more torque than lower-powered models for increased digging performance.


The RTX150 trencher maneuvers easily on the jobsite with no need for additional steering levers or wheels and also includes the exclusive Vermeer VZ steering system. With its 35 inch (88.9 centimeter) width size, the RTX150 has a maximum digging depth of 36 inches (91.4 centimeters). The tandem effort of a heavy-duty hydraulic oil cooler and large reservoir help manage system temperature to benefit performance and reliability. Hydraulic components, including pumps and motors, are designed and configured to maximize power to the digging chain. For units equipped, the tracks oscillate up to 20 degrees for increased traction on uneven ground and ease of loading / unloading.
