Vermeer, the American construction and industrial equipment manufacturer, has a new mini skid steer available. The CTX160 mini skid steer is a compact and powerful machine with an operating capacity of 725kg, 56.8 litres per minute of auxiliary hydraulic flow, and a width of 106cm (allowing it to pass through a standard-sized gate). It is the ideal machine for applications that require heavy lifting in confined work spaces.
“What makes the mini skid steer loader versatile and unique among tool carriers is its ability to efficiently maneuver where larger loaders can’t,” said Brett Newendorp, landscape market manager at Vermeer. “We designed the CTX160 to give contractors a class-leading ROC in a small footprint so they get the best of both worlds. Also, it helps operators stay confident in their equipment when it is built with quality and durability in mind.”
Here is more from Vermeer’s official press release:
“The Vermeer CTX160 features a vertical lift path design, with a hinge-pin dump height of 88.75 inches (225.4 cm) for efficient clearance when dumping material in to a trailer or truck. The unit is powered by a 40 horsepower (29.8 kW) turbocharged Kohler KDI diesel engine that does not require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), helping to reduce the cost and complexity of the engine.
“With a weight of 4,000 pounds (1,814.4 kg) and a 9 inch (22.9 cm) rubber track undercarriage, the CTX160 provides optimal traction when transporting heavy material and in harsh working environments. Its Vermeer chariot-style ride-on platform has an integrated operator presence system that disengages the loader’s ground drive and attachment motion when the operator steps off the machine. The platform also provides operator comfort and visibility.”
