Vermeer puts true innovation into surface mining operations.
Traditional surface mining has left untold tons of minerals underground, simply because there was no way to get to it safely and efficiently.
The Vermeer innovative Terrain Leveler® surface excavation machines can work where explosives can’t, with top-down cutting that lets you reach valuable mineral seams and get the most product out of the ground as possible. Plus, you’ll get comprehensive parts, service and support from our worldwide Vermeer dealer network.
Vermeer Terrain Leveler® surface excavation machines (SEM) deliver more than rock-penetrating power.
Vermeer SEM's combine productivity with precision, and are built to handle big jobs in your surface mine, quarry, civil construction or site prep application.
The Terrain Leveler SEM is designed to maximize machine simplicity with a hydrostatic transmission that provides less moving parts compared to mechanical systems. Wide track width and low center of gravity provide stability – while dual hydrostatic tracks allow for maximum maneuverability – including 360-degree counter-rotation.
