How to Drive a Bulldozer

A bulldozer is a specialized tractor that is used to level ground. It has two main parts---the tractor itself and the blade. The blade is the flat, metal plate on the front of the tractor that levels the ground. You can rent a bulldozer in many states if you have a driver's license, but it is preferable watch a professional before driving it yourself.
1.Turn the key in the ignition to start the bulldozer.
2.Hold your foot over the brake. Be ready to brake at any time.
3.Grasp the joystick at your left. Slowly push it in the direction you would like to go.
4.To decelerate, press the deceleration pedal. It is located next to the brake.
5.To control the blade, use the joystick to your right.
6.To level the ground, slowly lower the blade until it is flush with the ground's surface. Then move the bulldozer forward slowly. The blade should shave the uneven ground as it moves.

  1. Operating heavy equipment is not a joke and it’s one of the most difficult and dangerous job onsite, so you must really be a professional driver in order to maneuver it. Bulldozer is not similar to those simple vehicles that you can easily drive on the road, in which it requires extra safety in operating it.
