How Much Does a Bulldozer Weigh?
A single bulldozer weighs between 8 and 104 tons depending on its type, according to Wikipedia. Wide tracks allow bulldozers to distribute their weight over a large area, which helps to decrease pressure, according to Heavy Equipment.com.
Bulldozers by design sport an immense blade and versatile track. The blade is used to push material from one place to another, while the tracks help move the bulldozer over rough terrain and steep slopes. A bulldozer’s diesel engine provides between 50 and 700 horsepower. Bulldozers have cabins that can feature air conditioning, AM/FM radio and automatic seat adjustments.
The Caterpillar D9 is one of the most popular track-type bulldozers in the world thanks to its low operating costs, size, reliability and durability.
