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.
