Customer: Would a bulldozer such as Cat D7 be able to create piles of fill from grade level ?

or would the blade need some sort of teeth or anything? im trying to remove some clay fill in back of a home and was wondering if a regular blade would be able to rip up the dirt and pile it up for an excavator to do the rest.

hi there my name is don
i will try to help you on this

yes the d7 with the regular blade will indeed move the clay

it might be a slow process depending how packed the clay is if it had a ripper blade on the back it would speed up the process

i have used a d7 in this matter as well

Thank you don. Just the first few inches is clay,below that is softer.

Whats the tool called thats at the black so when I ask for a dozer i can ask for that attachment?
sorry not black i meant back
sorry another question. how big of a pile can a dozer make?

we have limited room and would like to make one big pile so the excavator can sit on stock
hi there thanks for your questions
you can pile it up as high as you like and aas big as you want

the part in the back you want is a ripper three tyne would be good its kinda like the furrel you pull behind a farm tractor to make rows if you know what i mean

three tyne means there are three arms with three blades all three are controlled together by hydraulics

once you start piling you can pack it down by running over it with the d7

it is a heavy machine


hi there thanks for the accept and great bonus it was my pleasure to assit you
