Bulldozer

 

Bulldozers are the powerhouses of the job site.  They can push, they can pull, they can dig and they can bring it all together for the finished product!

Description

A bulldozer is a crawler (continuous tracked tractor) equipped with a substantial metal plate (known as a blade) and is used to push large quantities of soil, sand, rubble, or other such material during construction or conversion work and can be equipped at the rear with a claw-like device (known as a ripper) to loosen densely compacted materials. Bulldozers can be found on a wide range of sites, mines and quarries, military bases, heavy industry factories, engineering projects and farms. The term “bulldozer” refers only to a tractor (usually tracked) fitted with a dozer blade.
