Vermeer Corporation introduces the Vermeer S800TX mini skid steer. This new ride-on machine features a rated tip capacity of 2,400 pounds (1089 kg) and rated SAE operating capacity of 840 pounds (381 kg), all in a compact frame, enabling contractors to lift and transport pallets and bucket loads in and around confined spaces.
The S800TX is powered by a 35-horsepower (26.1 kW) diesel engine, providing ideal power and breakout force. Measuring just 40.5 inches (103 cm) in width, the S800TX offers a narrow footprint enhancing maneuverability and access to confined spaces.
The hydraulic system of the S800TX has ideal flow rate, capable of providing 14 gpm (53 L/min) of hydraulic flow that helps more efficiently power a variety of attachments. An optional dual auxiliary hydraulic circuit helps provide operational efficiency with varying attachments. A universal mounting plate allows operators to quickly swap out attachments, making the S800TX extremely versatile in the field.
Features to enhance operator comfort and safety have also been incorporated into the S800TX design, including a spring-cushioned ride-on platform that offers broad jobsite visibility and ease of stepping on and off the machine. An operator presence system, integrated into the ride-on platform, automatically suspends ground drive and powered boom/bucket motion if the operator steps off the platform. Console cushions positioned to the front of the operator and on either side help increase operator comfort, particularly when working on uneven terrain.
The S800TX ground drive is controlled by a single, pilot-operated joystick for a smooth range of motion. Boom / bucket motion is controlled by a single, dual axis joystick.
