Features & benefits of the Vermeer PTX40 


  • Utilised for irrigation and utility installations, the versatile Vermeer PTX40 is a plow/trencher with a dedicated plow depth of up to 24” (61 cm), a trench depth of up to 42” (106.7 cm) and a width of 4-6” (10.2-15.2 cm). The optional bore attachment has a maximum torque of 620 ft-lb (840.6 Nm).
  • When plowing or in transport mode, remote control operation of the PTX40 offers great flexibility in congested areas, providing the operator with both fingertip control and smooth machine handling. The remote-control functionality provides adjustability for the operator to maintain visibility to the work area and machine operation from a variety of viewpoints. When trenching, the operator controls utilise a tether that connects the Vermeer PTX40 and remote control.
  • Access to required service points, as well as fuel, hydraulic oil, engine oil and air filters, does not require the removal of any shielding. This increases the efficiency of machine service and simplifies daily maintenance of the PTX40.
  • At 40.2” (102.1 cm) wide and only 55” (139.7 cm) high, the Vermeer PTX40 is small enough to navigate smaller job sites where larger machines can’t fit.
  • With a variety of traction options, the PTX40 is well-suited to contractors’ differing needs. Options include 23” (58.4 cm) tyres, 26” (66 cm) tyres and dual tyre options. Tracks are also available for uneven terrain use.
