Bulldozers: The Versatile Earthmoving Equipment
Bulldozers are heavy machines that can clear away soil, sand and other debris using a wide blade on the front called a pusher. Most bulldozers also have a clawed tool on the rear (called a ripper) that can loosen up dense materials before the pusher takes them away. Aside from general construction jobs, such as roadbuilding, dozers can also be used for landscaping, forestry, agricultural plowing, and mining operations.
My Little Salesman has a wide selection of dozers for sale to choose from – so whether you need a mini dozer, a medium-sized crawler dozer, or a much larger wheel bulldozer, we have the right listing for every kind of job!
Picking the Right Bulldozer for Sale
There are generally two different types of new and used bulldozers for sale:
- Crawlers – These bulldozers run on tracks instead of wheels. They have a stronger undercarriage than their wheeled counterparts and can work on uneven terrain that wheel bulldozers simply cannot handle. You should look at a crawler dozer for sale when moving difficult materials like sand.
- Wheel Bulldozer – These bulldozers run on wheels and are much larger than crawler dozers. A wheel bulldozer for sale has better maneuverability than crawlers because they have hydraulic steering and can turn on a smaller axis. Wheeled bulldozers have a much heavier footprint than crawlers.
New vs. Used Dozer
If you find yourself struggling to decide between a new or a used dozer for sale, consider the following:
- Used – A used dozer for sale is perfect for general construction and demolition purposes where special technology is not required, as is the case with most residential construction.
- New – Buying a new dozer for sale gives you the latest technology that’s oftentimes needed for operations with specialized tasks (such as mining, pipeline construction, and anything else requiring advanced precision).
