The Proper Geometry For A Tilting Bulldozer 620190

This paper describes a deficiency in the geometry of most straight bulldozers that causes excessive side loads in the push arms, especially when equipped with tilt cylinders. The loading on a conventional bulldozer is described, and an ideal geometry that will reduce the maximum loads is defined. Some new designs are proposed that have the proper geometry and reduce the side loads to a minimum.
