Earth-Moving Machinery - Crawler and Wheel Tractor Dozer Blades - Volumetric Ratings
|Publication Date:||1 January 1988|
|ICS Code (Earth-moving machinery):||53.100|
Scope and field of application
This International Standard specifies a procedure for calculating the volume of dozer blades. It is intended to be used for consistent comparisons of dozer blade capacities presented in commercial literature for tractors, as defined in IS0 6165. It is not to be used for predicting productivity of tractor dozers in actual field conditions or that might be observed in any specific applications. Such determinations need to consider other parameters, such as efficiency of the blade, tractor power, tractive effort, soil properties, terrain, operator technique and duty cycle.
This International Standard applies to all types of dozers that are mounted on all tractors defined in IS0 6747. This includes straight, angling, semi-U-, and U-blade configurations. It is assumed that the blade face is flat and vertical; the blade included volume is not considered.
