Key features

  • An electronic fuel injection (EFI) engine performs well during cold-weather starts and provides improved fuel economy over comparable carbureted gas engines.
  • AutoSweep monitors engine speed and automatically adjusts cutter wheel sweep rate.
  • The hydrostatic ground drive and hydraulic cutter wheel drive eliminates belts and pulleys reducing maintenance time and cost.
  • Ground disturbance is minimized due to long tracks which provide lower ground pressure and improved stability.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
