How to Use a Bulldozer & Not Get Stuck in Wet Areas
Bulldozers, or crawler tractors, are useful for earth-moving operations in demanding environments. Because they operate on tracks rather than wheels, they distribute their weight more evenly over the drive surfaces and are less susceptible to becoming stuck in mud and loose fill. While tracked vehicles are well-suited to operating in muddy environments, a common misconception is that they can never get stuck. In fact, bulldozers can get stuck and are very hard to get out once they are. Observing a few common-sense safety rules can help keep you safe while operating tracked heavy equipment in wet conditions.
