A bulldozer is a crawler (continuous tracked tractor) equipped with a substantial metal plate (known as a blade) used to push large quantities of soil, sand, rubble, or other such material during construction or conversion work and typically equipped at the rear with a claw-like device (known as a ripper) to loosen densely-compacted materials.
A straight blade ("S blade") which is short and has no lateral curve and no side wings and can be used for fine grading.

Bulldozers and crawlers, characterized for their immense blade and versatile track, are comprised of many structural, hydraulic, and engine assemblies. The core body of the bulldozer, consisting of the mainframe and undercarriage, is primarily fabricated from low carbon structural steel plates and a giant casting. The cab contains many glass, rubber, and plastic components which enhance the ergonomic feel of the machine. Supplying the power for the dozer and its various systems, the engine contains many high strength steel parts, which endure high operating temperatures. The other necessary components, the blade, power train, and various systems components, are formed from structural and high carbon steel. The track, which is fashioned from many standard grade steel links, adds to the already tremendous weight of this mostly steel machine. Once the dozer is filled with fuel, hydraulic fluid, coolant, oil, and other types of fluids, its weight increases by several hundred pounds. Decorative trim, decals, and paint complete the dozer's aesthetics and add distinctive appeal.
