There isn’t another fully hydrostatic sliding offset trencher this size in the world that packs the power and the outstanding cutting technology of the Vermeer T558 trencher. The 48,000 lb (21,772 kg) T558 is the industry’s only offset trencher in its class that can trench outside the width of the left track – up to 9″ (22 cm) with a 24″ (61 cm) chain setup. This enhanced cutting capacity gives operators the additional access to trench alongside jobsite obstacles such as roads, curbs, buildings, and walls with greater ease and precision.
A 185 HP (137 kw) John Deere 6068HF275 engine produces the power for rock-solid results in cross-country drainage and utility pipe installations, as well as foundation and roadway projects. Combined with features like the stowable loading conveyor, a sectional- ized boom, large ROPS, and auto-tilt tracks, the T558 offset trencher delivers the muscle, the cutting action, and the versatility to tackle even the toughest trenching jobs.
OFFSET: Sliding boom from left to right.
TEC2000: A microprocessor-based electronic control system which monitors operating conditions, and informs the operator of real-time machine performance for increased productivity and reduced wear to the machine. An electric stroke limiter increases engine control and reduces operator error from the most abusive aspect of trenching.
TILT: There’s no need to level the surface before trenching with the optional auto-tilt track. An oscillating track frame allows the T558 to follow the ground’s contour, ensuring a vertical trench on slopes up to 19%, or 10.7°, minimizing chain wear and trench cave-ins.
ROPS CABIN: The T558 offers one of the largest cabs in the trenching industry. The Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) is standard for added operator safety.
