They come in all shapes and sizes, with dozens of different types of attachments on one end or both: bulldozers.
From small homestead mini dozers to commercial grade heavy machinery, these must-have pieces of equipment make it possible to get just about any job done. Depending on the type of surface that you’re going to be working on, dozers come with different track pad options, to help you get a good grip for whatever needs to be pushed, pulled, or hauled away. If you’ve been thinking about getting your own personal dozer or investing in one for your farm, here are some of the top jobs you can plan to check off of your “honey do” list:
Tearing Stuff Up
Dozers are great for demolition purposes. If you have a piece of property that you’ve invested in but need to tear down old buildings, barns, sheds, or other construction, a bulldozer is what you need to make it happen. Even smaller personal sized dozers can rip down fences and push rubble out of the way, so that you can get on to working on bigger projects.
If you live up north and have more driveway than what you can handle with an everyday snow shovel, a tractor or bulldozer can be your best weapon. Not only that, you’ll probably have the chance to win some brownie points with your neighbors if you hire your services out.
Moving Dirt Around
Want to dig a pond? You’ve got it. Need to dig a ditch or improve the drainage around your property? No problem. Your bulldozer is made for moving dirt. The large steel blade and ripper combo can push through even the most compact soil, saving you sweat and elbow grease. Moving large amounts of earth to build your own golf course or underground house can be completed in just a matter of days.
Leveling Soil for Homes, Roads, and Driveways
Whether you want to pave a trail through the woods next to your house, need to build a driveway from the front of your property to the barn out back, or want to put in your own private road, you’ll need to make sure the dirt is level and free of debris. Your MAGNATRAC doesn’t just move things out of the way, it can help you get that flat, smooth surface that accommodates whatever road material you have in mind.
Clearing Out Brush
From felled trees to uprooting vegetation and shrubs, a MAGNATRAC plows right through whatever is in front of it…whether it’s that old rose bush that you can’t seem to kill, or a freshly cut oak tree that is soon to be this winter’s firewood. Planning on putting in a new garden? If you don’t have a tractor, the right attachment on your MAGNATRAC may be the only thing you need.
Construction (Commercial and Personal)
A MAGNATRAC is usually the first piece of equipment you bring in when you need to make room for a new home, even if it’s in the middle of the city and there aren’t any trees in sight. A lot of MAGNATRAC owners use their machines on small projects or contract out their services to make extra money on the weekends. Whether you need to level out where a new foundation is going in, pull a load of concrete bags across the lot, or manage the drainage before construction starts, you can’t mark half of the items off of your building to-do list without a reliable commercial or mini dozer.
