The T1255 Commander trencher from Vermeer, Pella, Iowa, features a terrain-leveler attachment. A Caterpillar C-16 engine powers the attachment, which can be used for soil mixing or remediation, rock excavation, concrete removal and road construction. Designed for surface mining products, including gypsum, coal and other materials, the T1255 terrain-leveler utilizes large, hydrostatically controlled cutting drums that cut down on the rock for better efficiency and deeper tooth penetration. The result is larger material with less fines. The drums cut 12 ft wide and up to 30 in. deep.
