Levelling land


Vermeer has launched the Terrain Leveller, a rock cutting drum attached to a trencher body which can be used as an alternative to blasting for breaking up quarried materials. It can also be used in place of dozers for levelling brownfield sites. The 1.15 m diameter cutting attachment, which weighs 39 tonnes and rotates at 24-50 rpm, provides sufficient power to crush limestone blocks in the quarry without requiring either blasting or a crusher, Vermeer says. The company added that the Leveller provides a quicker and less abrasive result than a milling machine.
