Dozer hire near you

Dozers are valuable pieces of equipment in construction and earthmoving projects with dozer hire suppliers offered on iseekplant across Australia in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, Darwin and surrounding suburbs.

Technically, bulldozers are continuous tracked tractors or 'crawlers', but you can get powerful machines that are wheeled or tracked nowdays. This depends on the surfaces you're working on and what load quantities you need to move. Fitted with a substantial metal blade, dozers are capable of moving large amounts of materials, aggregates or soil in quarries, mines, civil roadworks and farming applications.

Dozer hire suppliers offer dozers equipped with heavy-duty, 4-wheel drive systems, articulated steering, and standard tracks, extra-wide low ground pressure (LGP) tracks or swamp tracks. Whatever the machine specifications you need, we've got it on the iseekplant Australia-wide directory.

Which Dozer Blade should you use?

Dozer blades are used to clear and push materials like sand, rocks and soil, as well as compact and shave uneven ground. Dozer blades are particularly helpful in projects requiring the removal of large amounts of earth material. Dozer hire suppliers can help you choose the best blade for your next project. The dozer blade was actually around before the dozer machine, and used to be pulled by two mules to fill gullies and holes. These days, dozer blades are operated with hydraulics and different blades can be used depending on project requirements.

Dozer hire suppliers have a range of blades available, so it is important to choose the ideal blade for your project. A short S-blade is best for fine grading applications, which has no lateral curve or side wings. However, a U-blade is more ideal if you need to move larger amounts of material as it's taller and more curved than the S-blade. U-blades also have large side wings to further increase their maximum capacity. S-U blades are also available as a combination of S and U blade attributes, which are commonly used to move rocks with some lateral curvature and small side wings. The bottom edge of the blade can be sharpened, so the dozer can cut down tree stumps. Additionally, the ripper at the dozer's rear can be single or multi shank, depending on the job you need completed.

Wheeled Dozer hire

While a wheeled dozer or rubber tyred dozer is limited in the types of environments where it can be used, it provides the major benefit of being significantly faster and more maneuverable than a tracked dozer. A tracked dozer is better suited when the site has soft ground and bogging is more likely to occur. Wheel dozers can reach 36km/h which is around three times faster than a typical tracked dozer. This speed and maneuverability means hiring a wheeled dozer can be more economical than a tracked dozer over large distances. The grade level of the site also impacts the dozers productivity, so as the grade level increases, the productivity of a wheeled dozer drops while a tracked dozer remains the same due to their greater traction. A wheeled dozer blade capacity is typically 30% less than a tracked dozer. However, the benefits of a larger blade diminishes if the pushing distance is greater than 200 metres.

Tracked Dozer hire

A tracked dozer or crawler dozer is propelled by a set of continuous steel or rubber tracks rather than wheels. A track dozer is able to traverse safely over moist or slippery ground, like mud, snow or rich soil. The tracks give the dozer excellent ground-holding capacity and mobility through rough terrain. The wide tracks help distribute the dozer weight to evenly spread the earth and decrease ground pressure, providing greater stability than a wheeled dozer and preventing it from sinking in sandy or muddy ground. When compared to rubber dozer wheels, the metal dozer tracks are damage resistant and strong. However, these metal treads on a tracked dozer can damage pavements and other surfaces which needs to be taken into account based on the dozer's environment. iseekplant has a wide range of tracked dozer sizes from the D3, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8, D9, D10, D11 to Drott.

Swamp Dozer hire

A swamp dozer is the perfect dozer to hire when you need to operate in wet, muddy or generally difficult terrain. Swamp dozers are fitted with extra-wide tracks known as swamp tracks or LGP tracks that cover larger surface areas, reducing the odds that the swamp dozer will get bogged. Swamp dozers are best suited when pushing large quantities of earth materials in difficult conditions where other dozers would face challenges. iseekplant has a full range of swamp dozers available for hire including the D3, D4, D5, D6, D7 and more.
