Dozer vs Excavator: which is more versatile

Though all heavy equipment are built with a specific purpose to serve the construction industry, but now most of the machines can be used for multi-tasking. Gone are the days when heavy equipment were used for only for specific purpose and companies needed some other machine for the next work. Today with the help of one machine, many tasks can be completed. However, such heavy equipment are also expensive and certainly cost more than the traditional ones but people prefer paying the extra price for the comfort of one machine. At times, there are issues when there is a requirement of the same machine at two places. This is when construction companies make use of the traditional ones but only when it is most needed. If given a subject where we have to pick a dozer or an excavator based on their versatility, it will be quite a difficult one even for the experts to do so.

Both a dozer and an excavator are widely used for activities like demolishing a structure, bringing down a tree and clearing the site debris, grading and excavating. We can’t expect an excavator to do heavy duty land clearing work. It can’t be used to bring down real huge structure but can certainly be used to demolish sizeable structures. At times, when contractors do not have a dozer at his disposal, he makes use of excavators to bring down any structure. It does not matter much to him how big the stuff is and if the excavator can do it. He is ready to give time but can’t deploy one more machine. There the excavator becomes more versatile. Though it does work out of the way but still its versatility remains intact.

Some experts in the construction industry believe that an excavator is more versatile when it comes to performance on the field. It is used extensively for a number of activities and one can simply depend on that piece of metal to complete all his work. They also believe that if given a hoe, the excavator can do everything under the sun. One can’t use a dozer to that extent. However, that does not imply the dozer to be non-efficient equipment. The group of experts who have their patronage for dozers feel otherwise. They see the dozers to be more versatile as it can quite efficiently do all the work which is somewhat not possible by any other genre of heavy equipment. They consider it to be the toughest of all and right from bringing down huge structures to carrying loads of debris, it can do it all.

There are also a bunch of experts who feel that it all matters on what kind of accessories are attached to the machine. You can get the same quality work done from an excavator that you can with a dozer if you gift them with appropriate accessories. These equipment fall in the category where they can be transformed as per their utility.
