Taken from Chapter 6: Dozing the Ground Bulldozers doze the ground. Dozing the ground means clearing the dirt, stones, or sand out of the way. Bulldozers have a big steel blade. The blade is not flat. It is curved. The curved shape scoops the dirt as it pushes it away. Sometimes there is a big spike at the back of a bulldozer. The spike is called a ripper. The ripper drags behind the bulldozer. It breaks up hard ground.Review:
In this book devoted to those giants of machinery, children will learn about giant wheels, about crawlers with steel tread, and about buckets, dumpers, and dipper arms. The power and size of these machines will dazzle girls as well as boys -- Canadian Children's Literature, 1995
