What is a Dozer?

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.
