Bulldozer is an essential piece of heavy equipment used in numerous industries as well as applications, including construction, mining, agriculture and landscaping. Dozers have a tractor-style body and metal plate blade at the front. Some types could additionally include a rear attachment for carrying out different tasks like digging. The most common attachment is the ripper, which functions like a giant claw. However, dozers run on heavy-duty tracks to provide better grip as well as mobility on uneven terrain.
Bulldozer comes in different sizes as well as can be fitted with several different blades, including:
S-blade: Short blade with no side wings.
U-blade: Universal blade that has a curved shape as well as large side wings.
S-U blade: Semi-universal blade with a slightly curved and narrow shape and side wings.
Angle blade: Two-way blade that provides angled movement.
Power-Angle-Tilt (PAT) blade: Controlled, multidirectional blade.
Bulldozer is a piece of earthmoving equipment used to move bulk amounts of debris, soil, sand, and other loose materials. Initially, farmers used them as tractors to plow and clear land. Dozers have developed over time to be very efficient in a range of conditions and applications. Bulldozers are used for shallow digging and ditching; short-range transportation of material; spreading soil dumped from trucks; rough grading; removing trees, stumps, and boulders; and cleaning as well as leveling around loading equipment. A bulldozer alone can do many types of excavation, and it is useful in combination with other machinery in most excavation work.
