Real-world Bulldozer Prices from BuyerZone Buyers
We regularly survey BuyerZone users to ask how their purchases went. We've used their responses to provide a sampling of actual prices businesses paid for bulldozers.
Since new bulldozers tend to be very expensive, most businesses look towards quality used equipment. If you're investing in a used bulldozer, make sure to look at the number of hours on the equipment as significant usage by the prior owner could mean serious mechanical issues down the line.
When comparing prices of used bulldozers below, you'll note that users may have different opinions about what "good condition" means. As with any heavy equipment purchase, pre-owned bulldozers can save you quite a bit of money, but requires that you have qualified maintenance staff, a good warranty, or another contingency plan in place.
