A new crawler dozer training module -- one of VISTA Training's web-deliverable operator training programs -- focuses on helping operators work proficiently and safely in all ground conditions.

The one-hour web-based, self-directed course is designed to provide trainees with a solid foundation of equipment and safety knowledge before they begin classroom or field training.

Entitled "Dozer: Basic Operation & Safety," the program explores three key areas:

  • Lesson 1 - Components: Trainees learn the major blade and track components of the track dozer and how they contribute to pushing material.
  • Lesson 2 - Controls: This lesson aims to explain to trainees a modern dozer's controls and how they work, as well as describing typical working conditions and basic dozer operating techniques.
  • Lesson 3 - Design and Application: Trainees walk through how to plan push and return cycles for maximum efficiency, and learn how and when to use different dozer operating modes such as cutting, ripping and carrying material.
