While there are many festivals and events across the country, there is one that stands…
It really doesn’t matter where you live these days, bulldozers and experienced bulldozer operators are needed everywhere. A bulldozer really is an all-purpose vehicle when it comes to dealing with the effects of mother nature. Every time there is a major event, bulldozers and their operators are called in to clean up the mess. They also generally employed to try and avert future problems. Consider some of these situations:
Snow and blizzards – Clearing snow from roads is a primary concern for almost every city, whether it’s here in the States or in Europe. Snow plows, graders, loaders, and yes, bulldozers are all called in to help clear the way.
Hurricanes, tornadoes and fierce storms – All three of these events create havoc. Beaches are heavily eroded and need bulldozing back into some semblance of a decent beach. Homes are destroyed and require bulldozing in order for a new home to be built.
Fire – Like storms, fire does immense damage, especially to property. In almost all serious house fires, the home needs to be bulldozed to make way for a new home. Bulldozers are also used to help create firebreaks and fire trails before the fire season starts.
Floods – Events like those in Australia (where an area the size of Texas is now underwater) bring home the danger and devastation of something as simple as rain. Bulldozers are working now to build levees and large embankments in an effort to prevent further flood damage. All over the world, bulldozers work to build dams and levees in the hope they can control mother nature.
Many of those activities occur after the event. Of course, bulldozers work on more mundane projects like building our highways, clearing land for farms and housing, and in general construction. It’s no wonder that bulldozers are one of the most popular vehicles in a heavy equipment fleet. There is one thing that all experienced operators have today – and that’s a heavy equipment training course that helped them get a start in the industry. Without that training, employers won’t even consider you now. Are you interested in a career that offers a lot of variety – bulldozer operations has it all – and it’s in demand worldwide.
