A crawler dozer, also referred to as a bulldozer or crawler tractor, is a large construction vehicle that is most commonly outfitted with a front-mounted dozer blade. These machines use tracks rather than wheels for locomotion, which spreads the vehicle’s weight over a larger surface area, enabling the dozer to exert a lower force per unit area on the ground to navigate soft soil, rocky terrain, snow, or mud. A variety of attachments can be added to the crawler tractor, thereby maximizing its usability. Crawler dozers are common to construction, agriculture, landfill, and other jobsites, in part for their ability to move sizable amounts of soil, gravel, rocks, sand, and other materials. They’re used to prep sites, scrape surfaces, clear debris, demolish structures, and more.
The bulldozer blade is operated with hydraulics and comes in three varieties. A straight, short blade with no lateral curve or side wings is most often used for fine grading. The universal blade is tall and curved with large side wings enabling it to carry heavy loads. The combination straight-universal blade retains strikes a balance between the straight and the universal, making it ideal for pushing significant quantities of material. Smaller crawler tractors can have a six-way blade which, in addition to raising and lowering, can also angle and tilt.
