#83 Equipment: Bulldozer

Description:  Seen here is a D6R Caterpillar track-type tractor, or in construction terms, a dozer.  Dozers are used for pushing soil material around construction sites, light soil compaction jobs, and many other tasks in the construction, mining, and logging industries.  Dozers are known for their ability to be used in almost any terrain thanks to the crawler tracks they use for movement.    As can be seen here, the dozer is working in a wet clay filled soil material that is very prone to bogging down traditional wheel vehicles and is doing just fine.
