What is the Right Dozer for your Project? 


When you are looking at different types of dozers, you need to know that there are three types of dozers which include:

  • Tracked Dozers
  • Wheeled Dozers
  • Swamp Dozers

What Type of Dozer do you Require?

When trying to decide which dozer you require to complete your project, there are a myriad of factors to consider. While most dozers can do the same tasks, there are varying sizes of dozers that undertake specific projects. Dozers are generally seen on either residential, industrial or commercial worksite undertaking road construction, quarrying or civil construction projects.

Tracked Dozers

Tracked dozers are the industries original, most well-known and most popular dozer in the dozer range. It is the most popular due to its tracks that allow the dozer to take on any project on any terrain. Whether the ground is rocky and hilly, the rain has soaked the dirt, it has started snowing or you need to work on sand, the tracked dozer can complete any project. The reason why tracked dozers can tackle any project type is due to the weight distribution. The tracks allow the dozer to disperse its weight over a much wider surface area and therefore improves stability. This is why track dozers can operate in a wide array of weather conditions and surfaces. Therefore, the tracked dozer is your best option as well as being the most versatile dozer to hire.

Wheeled Dozers

Wheeled dozers are also well known in the industry but isn’t as popular as the tracked dozer. The wheeled dozer, unlike the track dozer, only operates at its full capacity when it is working on terrain such as concrete or asphalt as the surface is flat and the wheels can operate without any resistance. The material from a demolition project is usually pushed away using a wheeled dozer due to the developed terrain. The dozers wheels wear far less on the developed surface compared to tracked dozers. So, when choosing which dozer to hire, make sure you understand the type of surface you are working with.

Swamp Dozers

Swamp dozers are pretty much identical to its tracked dozer counterpart with only one significant difference. This difference being the size of the tracks. Swamp dozers have much wider tracks compared to the tracked dozer due to the environments and projects the swamp dozer undertakes. As the name suggests, the swamp dozer is generally utilised in swampy areas as well as sandy areas where most wheeled and tracked dozers would become stuck.
