Overview

The SPX25 by Vermeer Corporation is an ideal machine for cable/fiber and irrigation contractors. The plow is operated with a full-function remote control that provides greater maneuverability in congested and tight jobsites.

A 25 hp (18.6 kW) Kohler gas engine provides ample power for both plowing small pipes and cables at depths of 12” (30.5 cm) or less and boring underneath driveways and sidewalks.

Features and Benefits

  • A remote control gives you 360-degree control of the machine, providing greater maneuverability on tight jobsites, as well as visibility to the complete worksite and to avoid potential obstacles or obstructions that may be difficult to operate with conventional controls.
  • A narrow width of 34.5” (87.6 cm) and length of 81” (205.7 cm) allows you to enter gated yards and install utilities in tight jobsites.
  • Dual rubber tracks with a ground pressure of 3.7 psi (.3 bar) minimize disturbance and restoration to the jobsite while tackling tough ground conditions. This lightweight plow will also help save time with a 3.7 mph (6 km/h) transport speed.
  • Add an optional reel carrier for increased productivity and efficiency.
  • Non-riding remote control machine allows 360 degrees of visibility around the machine while operating
  • Easily transition from plowing to boring under driveways, sidewalks and other obstacles with an optional Porta Bore attachment.
  • Work around obstacles and make tight turns with a 55-degree swing angle.
