A bulldozer, commonly referred to as a dozer, is a heavy equipment machine that is seen frequently in large and small-scale construction projects, road building, mining, quarrying, farming, heavy industry factories, and even occasionally military applications. Dozers are equipped with a metal blade mounted to the front that is designed for pushing material and are typically seen on continuous tracks.
Bulldozers are large and incredibly powerful, making them advantageous for pushing materials such as soil, sand, rubble, or even rock. Their wide tracks help with weight distribution, which decreases ground pressure thus preventing sinking in sandy or muddy conditions. These tracks also provide superb traction and mobility through rough terrain.
Dozers are well designed for road building, construction, mining, forestry, land clearing, infrastructure development, and other projects that require highly mobile, robust, and stable earth-moving equipment. They are able to do a range of excavation projects and can be used in conjunction with other machinery to maximize capabilities.
The two key pieces to a bulldozer are the blade and the ripper. Bulldozer blades come in a variety of types, including S-blades, U-blades, and S-U blades. Each blade type has its own capabilities and purpose. Mounted straight across the frame, or at an angle, blades can be lifted, or tilted to vary the angle.
Rippers are long, claw-like shanks that can be mounted to the rear of a bulldozer to loosen hard and impacted materials. In addition to loosening soil in agriculture and construction jobs, the ripper can also break rock or pavement into small, easy-to-handle pieces.
Bulldozers are popular pieces of heavy construction equipment within the construction industry. This machine can take on a variety of tasks in both small and large-scale jobs in a variety of industries.
When looking to finance a bulldozer, there are a number of things to take into account. Brand, whether it is Komatsu or a Cat bulldozer, is often a deciding factor. Many also consider the terrain of the job site, the type of job, and the blade type.
