The equipment used for smaller scale clearance of material such as sand, rubble, brush etc. Is the Crawler dozer. Smaller than the bulldozer, these machines also have tracks instead of wheels, which distributes the ground pressure while moving ahead with the front blade. The tracks distribute the load which is ideal in construction terrain that can be damaged easily such as gravel and sand.
As loader dozers are typically used to knock down large hillsides and load the material onto haul trucks, dump trucks or tandems, the amount of material to be moved or loaded determines what size of loader dozer to use. As moving and lifting extra-large boulders is another job that is almost exclusively the work of a loader dozer, the general size of the rocks is another determining factor.
Renting a loader dozer is necessary when an extraordinarily large bucket capacity is required. In addition, loader dozers are used in very rocky ground, ground that a wheel loader would be unstable on and would not have the power to cut into and move. When bucket capacity, power and stability are the highest priorities -- not speed -- a loader dozer is the most appropriate bucket machine to rent for flatwork.
