The patented tilt attachment tilts 5 degrees in either direction allowing for cutting to grade and a smooth pit floor.
Drive motors attached directly to the cutter drum improves efficiencies and reduces wear costs associated with chain, sprocket and belt transmissions.
Top down cutting, as developed by Vermeer, allows the cutter teeth to gain penetration without using the machine’s tractive effort to drive the teeth into the material.
The cab, equipped with the TEC Plus operating system, allows the T1655 to communicate with the various control modules located throughout the machine. While the machine is performing, the air-ride suspension system on the cab provides a smooth, quiet ride for the operator in the typically harsh environment of a mining operation. It also features a filtered air system, dual self-contained cooling and heating systems, sound attenuating foam as well as dual air-ride suspension seats for optimum operator and trainer comfort.
