Tired of long hours in farms? Hire a bulldozer available in Agromoris Mauritius for planters/ farmers to facilitate their tasks.
Bulldozer (Dozer) is a powerful machine for pushing earth or rocks. People use it in road building, farming, construction, and wrecking. Moreover, it consists of a heavy, broad steel blade or plate mounted on the front of a tractor. Sometimes it uses a four-wheel-drive tractor, but usually people employ a track or crawler type, which they mount on continuous metal treads. Hydraulic rams may lift or force down the blade. For digging, the blade is held below surface level. For transporting, it is held at the surface level, and for spreading, it is held above the surface level, as the tractor moves forward.
Bulldozers can be found on a wide range of sites, mines and quarries, military bases, heavy industry factories, engineering projects, and farms.
uses of bulldozer
- shallow digging and ditching
- short-range transportation of material
- spreading soil dumped from trucks
- rough grading
- removing trees, stumps, and boulders
- cleaning and leveling around loading equipment
A bulldozer alone can do many types of excavation, as well as it is useful in combination with other machinery in most excavation work.
The bulldozer’s primary tools are the blade and the ripper.
The bulldozer blade come in three types:
- Firstly, straight blade (“S blade”) is short and has no lateral curve and no side wings, and we can use it for fine grading.
- Secondly, universal blade (“U blade”) is tall and very curved, and has large side wings to carry more material.
- Thirdly, an “S-U” (semi-U) combination blade is shorter, and has less curvature and smaller side wings. People typically use it for pushing large rocks, as at a quarry.
We can fit blades straight across the frame, or at an angle, sometimes using additional tilt cylinders to vary the angle while moving.
The ripper is the long, claw-like device on the back of the bulldozer. Rippers occur as a single (single shank/giant ripper) or in groups of two or more (multishank rippers). Usually, a single shank most preferable for heavy ripping. The ripper shank is fitted with a replaceable tungsten steel alloy tip, referred to as a boot. Therefore, ripping rock breaks the ground surface rock or pavement into small rubble, easy to handle and transport, which we can then remove so grading can take place.
