A dozer short for bulldozer is a continuous tracked tractor with a substantial wide metal plate (blade) that is mounted to the front of the tractor. Dozers are large and powerful tracked machinery and the tracks provide them with ground holding capability and mobility in all kinds of terrains. The torque divider is designed to transform the engine power in order to enhance the dragging capacity. The first dozer was adapted from a farm tractor and was used to plow fields. The first design of the dozer was back in 1923 by a farmer James Cummings and draftsman J. Earl McLeod. Over the years the dozers got bigger and more powerful and the demand grew in the earthmoving industry. Some of the world's biggest brands such as Caterpillar, Komatsu and Case started to manufacture the rubber type dozers, while Caterpillar also started to manufacture large rubber tired dozers. These days dozers are commonly used on projects across Australia in both capital cities and regional areas. What is a dozer used for? Due to its power and mobility dozers can be found across a wide range of projects and industries across Australia. This includes sites, mines, quarries, military bases and farms. Commonly a dozer is used to move significant magnitude of soil, sand, debris, obstacles, clear roads and bushes. With the advancement of technology of lasers and GPS, Dozers are being used a lot more to replace graders. What are the different types of dozers? There are 3 different types of dozers that can vary on what they are being used for. The 3 types of dozers available for hire include: Tracked dozer Swamp dozer Wheeled dozer Tracked dozer are the original dozers and are most commonly used across all terrains to excel and complete the job faster. They are commonly used to move sand, soil, debris and other material. The swamp dozers are different to tracked dozers as they have a different size of tracks. They use a wide tracks to ensure the weight of the dozer can be distributed evenly. This makes the swamp dozer perfect to use in a swamp or sandy areas. Wheeled dozers are only used on major quarry and mining work and are commonly mistakes with a front loader even though they are completely different. The wheeled loaders are designed for more speed and maneuverability rather than power.
