Vermeer CT718 Compost Turner

The CT718 compost turner sets new standards for efficiency, productivity and ease of operation. Operator comfort and efficiency have been enhanced — including new controls, an easy-to-read control display, along with side- and rear-view cameras. Plus the main frame has a lower machine height for better transportability.

  • AGGRESSIVE FLAILS. The aggressive Vermeer flails ensure aeration and mixing. When properly aerated, the composting cycle is considerably shortened and site throughput is increased.
  • JOBSITE EFFICIENCY. Advanced Control System (ACS) controller monitors engine rpm and slows or stops the ground drive when it reaches the programmable set point to reduce stalling the turner in the windrow.
  • RELIABLE COMPONENTS. The poly-synchronous belt drum drive has proven to be a reliable system requiring little maintenance and offering adjustable shafts.
  • PRECISE CONTROL. Equipped with independently controlled lift cylinders for thorough aeration of the compost pile.
  • EXTENDED CLUTCH LIFE. Engine power is transferred through the hydraulically actuated PT Tech clutch. To help extend clutch life, control software prevents the operator from engaging or disengaging the drum drive at full engine rpm.
  • EASE OF MAINTENANCE. All grease points are accessible from ground level. Hinged, lockable doors on both sides of the engine provide spacious access for maintenance.
