To estimate the cost of a bulldozer for your project, you will need to know the project area, the depth of excavation (or fill, if you are spreading material), the blade capacity, and the speed of the dozer as determined from drawbar pull vs. ground speed data.

To find the variables for your dozer, you will need to check with the manufacturers specs. For example, data for Caterpillar bulldozers is available in the Caterpillar Performance Handbook.

You will need

The area of excavation in m^{2}.

Depth of excavation (or height of fill you, if you are adding material).

Blade capacity for your dozer in m^{3}.

Dozer speed for mass of soil pushed from drawbar pull vs. ground speed.
