Bulldozers are large, tractor-like vehicles. They are equipped with a large metal blade that is used to push, move and haul large quantities of construction and agricultural products. Bulldozers are used to loosen densely packed material like gravel, soil, sand, and rubble.
Bulldozers are used in construction and farm work. They are useful machines for landscapers, contractors and construction companies. These machines are utilized to move and haul heavy objects and materials. They come in a variety of sizes, with the smallest, sometimes called a mini bulldozer, being about the same size as a ride-on lawn mower.
Often, landscape and construction companies that sell bulldozers also sell loaders, backhoes, ploughs and cranes. Loaders and excavators are sometimes confused with bulldozers. Excavators are used to dig trenches and holes. They are also used for forestry and demolition work, as well as for general grading and landscaping. Most bulldozers are of the crawler type with tracks, but some only have wheels. Large bulldozers are considered heavy machinery. Tractors may come with bulldozer attachments. They may also have rakes or rippers attached.
However, most bulldozers are used in construction, demolition and civil engineering work. They are sold by farm and construction equipment companies. These construction and agricultural companies sometimes also provide parts and maintenance services. Some dealers specialize in the sale of small and mini bulldozers. It is also possible for a dealer to specialize in a specific brand of bulldozer. In many cases these and other heavy machines are available for rent. Contact bulldozer rental companies to also find out if they will provide an operator to properly work the machine that you rent. Also ask if they rent a specific brand of machinery that you may be looking for.
Bulldozers are large construction vehicles that are used to plough dirt, rake materials with hydraulic shovels, and break down heavy structures like buildings. If you are interested in purchasing a bulldozer or repair parts, then you will need to find a construction supply company that gives you access to all of the equipment that you want. Many of these companies should also have cranes, crawlers, tractors, loaders, backhoes, excavators, blades, rippers, and other armored equipment for sale and rent. When you contact the company, ask them if they offer sales and rental services for regular sized and mini bulldozers. If you want to save money on the parts and vehicles that you purchase while still getting a good deal on brand name equipment, ask them if they have used bulldozers and parts that you can purchase. Ask the company if they have an online catalog so you can look at the large and small landscape and construction equipment that they have. The catalog should also include details on the new and used repair parts that they've got. If you have a large project or several small ones that require a bulk order, then you should ask them if they offer wholesale discounts to construction and engineering firms that place bulk orders. When you find several companies that have the brand name items that you need, you should ask them to give you price quotes that include fees for shipping and any discounts that they offer. This will help you accurately compare the prices so that you can get the best deal.
