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.

Transforming Landfills Into Resources

A landfill can be like a baby: It is helpless to care for itself; while it’s growing, it eats all day; at night when resting, it must be protected from the elements; and it belches constantly. If you’re lucky, it won’t stir up much fuss. If you’re not lucky, the neighbors

The Right Size for the Job

The Right Size for the Job

People often boast of the size, horsepower, and strength of the equipment they own and use. However, for many erosion control jobs, the right choice is compact equipment that has a smaller footprint. Compact excavators, track loaders, and skid steers are the best option for projects in limited space or

The Backhoe Tech Boom

The Backhoe Tech Boom

Katie Pullen, brand marketing manager for CASE Construction Equipment, says there’s an important reason why telematics is gaining traction with backhoe loaders: manufacturers have made it easier for owners to acquire and operators to use the systems.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Nobody ever said that site work would be easy. For every site with easily excavated soft loamy soils, there is another one with hardpan, rocky soils, frozen soils, or even bedrock. Excavating rock is far harder, more time consuming, and much more expensive than soil excavation. For thistype of operation, special tools are necessary.

Better Than Human, If You Can’t Beat ‘Em…

This past week I’ve been attending a press briefing at one of the big heavy equipment manufacturers. One of the issues that was touched upon was that of research and development and the direction in which it will go, now that just about all of the Tier 4 final rollouts

Putting a Lock on Leachate

Putting a Lock on Leachate

Leachate management is an increasingly important problem in landfill operations. Greater understanding of leachate-related risks to wastewater treatment has led to rising concerns, in turn spawning a growing emphasis on leachate reduction. This has forced landfill operators to build new skills and install expensive equipment to collect and deal with

Keeping Slopes Aligned With Geogrid Technology

Keeping Slopes Aligned With Geogrid Technology

Whether seen in the gradual downslope movement of individual grains of sand dragged toward the ocean with each wave from the sea, or a mammoth mountainside boulder, triggered by the weight of a snowpack into a tumbling avalanche, slope instability is a process of nature.
