A bulldozer is a powerful tractor-like machine that travels over tracks or wheels and features a wide blade on the front for pushing materials. They are excellent for construction, road building, demolition and various other applications. Some of the most popular dozer manufacturers are John Deere, Caterpillar and Komatsu.
In terms of weight, the average bulldozer can push anywhere from 7,000 to 12,000 pounds, depending on the blade's capability and the dozer itself. These numbers fluctuate depending on the model's size and specifications. Regarding clearing distance, most standard bulldozers can clear anywhere from 3 to 5 acres in a day or around 90 cubic yards an hour, depending on their manufacturer's specifications. Again, these answers are only approximations and many factors come into play, such as the bulldozer model, the terrain, the materials being pushed and more.

No, bulldozers do not have steering wheels. Instead, operators steer dozers by slowing either the right or left track’s motion; the other track compensates and turns the machine left or right depending on which track has slowed down. Wheeled bulldozers also do not feature a steering wheel but have a four-wheel-drive system powered by a hydraulic, articulated steering system.
