Vermeer Terrain Leveler surface excavation machines (SEM’s) combine productivity with precision, and are built to handle big jobs in your surface mine, quarry, civil construction or site prep application.
Comprised of tractor and attachment, you have the ability to switch between the chain drive or direct drive Terrain Leveler attachment for surface mining, overburden removal, road construction or soil remediation and trencher attachment for installing large-diameter pipe for energy, sewer, water and gas applications.
The Terrain Leveler SEM is designed to maximize machine simplicity with a hydrostatic transmission that provides less moving parts compared to mechanical systems. Wide track width and low center of gravity provide stability – while dual hydrostatic tracks allow for maximum maneuverability – including 360-degree counter-rotation. The rear-mounted drum and top-down cutting helps minimize machine contact with the cut material, and the tilt mechanism on the drum helps manage the floor or bench to allow a formation of a flat, smooth floor.
Cut to plan with the addition of a grade control system which can help improve cutting accuracy and operator consistency. SmartTEC performance software, available on all Terrain Leveler SEM’s, makes adjusting controls and recording machine productivity more efficient and the ability to view SmartTEC information through the telematics lens helps the fleet manager monitor the machine’s performance.
