If the blade digs into the ground and the back of the machine rises, raise the blade in order to continue an even cut. When a heavy load causes travel speed to drop, shift to a lower speed and/or raise the blade slightly.
When you are doing finish work or levelling work, a full blade can be handled more easily than a partially loaded blade.
This allows larger loads to be carried in front of the blade. Use slot dozing for stockpiling and for high production bulldozing.
Side by Side Dozing
Use side by side dozing when you are moving large quantities of loose material. Keep the blades close together and keep the machines parallel.
Tilt Bulldozer Ditching
Tilt the blade and work with the low side in the ditch center. Level the blade when the required depth and the required slope are reached.
Straight Bulldozer Ditching
Tilt the blade in order to cut shallow "V" ditches. For larger ditches, doze at right angles to the centerline of the ditch. When the desired depth is reached, doze the length of ditch in order to smooth the sides and bottom.
Angle Dozer Backfilling
Travel parallel to the ditch.
Straight Bulldozer Backfilling
Push the material at a 90 degree angle to the ditch.
