Bulldozers can refer to a tractor fitted with a dozer blade. A bulldozer is a type of crawler equipped with a metal plate (blade) used to push big quantities of soil, sand, rubble or other material during construction or conversion work.
Bulldozers are commonly equipped at the rear with a claw-like device (a ripper) to loosen densely compacted materials. Bulldozers can be found on a variety of sites, mines and quarries, military bases, heavy industry factories as well as engineering projects and farms.
Bulldozers can be described as massive and powerful tracked heavy equipment. The tracks give the bulldozers great ground holding capability and mobility through rough terrain. Wide tracks can help distribute the bulldozer's weight over a wide area which prevents it from sinking in sandy or muddy ground.
Because of these attributes, bulldozers can be used in road building, construction, mining, forestry, land clearing, infrastructure development, and any other projects requiring highly mobile, powerful, and stable earth-moving equipment. The bulldozers have a primary tool which is the blade and the ripper. The word "bulldozer" is sometimes used inaccurately for other similar construction vehicles like a large front loader.
