The Caterpillar bulldozer is intended for different types of jobs. These may include:
Stripping, including on heavily vegetated land
Its blade can have different functions:
If the blade is horizontal, the bulldozer will be used more for scraping earthmoving; the cutting depth will then be 20 to 30 cm which can allow piping work to be undertaken.
The high position allows loads to be transported
The intermediate position allows adjustment of the spoil piles. The piles can be leveled if the blade is oriented in the direction of travel.
The Caterpillar bulldozer can be optimized with various attachments making it a very versatile construction machine.
