Dozer Hire Rates Guide

Dozer hire rates vary greatly depending on whether the machine has modern onboard technology such as telematics and GPS, but an older dozer can still be effective in heavy-duty work and may cost less to hire. Luckily - we’ve catalogued all these details of the dozers on our site for your convenience so you can make an informed decision.

Types of Dozers for Hire

There are four types of dozers, with the tracked dozer being the most popular. The differences relate particularly to their propulsion system and hire choice comes down to the compaction level of the ground you're operating the dozer on.

Tracked Dozer Hire

A tracked dozer is a type of bulldozer that has tracks that provide higher traction on loosely compacted terrains, making it the most popular and efficient dozer for bulk earthworks operations. This is the most popular and widely operated dozer in construction. See further below for size and power breakdowns.

Wheeled Dozer Hire

A wheeled dozer is a type of bulldozer that is designed for speed and maneuverability, with wheels instead of tracks - and can operate with dexterity on more strongly compacted services (including asphalt).

Swamp Dozer Hire

A swamp dozer is similar to a tracked dozer, but with extra wide tracks to distribute its weight over a larger area for better traction in swampy or sandy areas where other dozers would get bogged.

Drott Hire

Drotts are sometimes confused for dozers when they are in fact a tracked loader. Their chassis is a dozer for all intents and purposes, but rather than having a blade, they have a bucket for digging and lifting materials, rather than pushing them.

Common Sizes of Tracked Dozers

We categorise the size models of tracked dozers using the product codes of Caterpillar dozers (as they are the most prolific dozer brand in the world). The specs below are based on the 2021 models of Cat Dozers.
