Bulldozers

4.0 1 Review SKU: CHUL00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The coal that is delivered to a plant is often unloaded and sent directly to bunkers that supply the boiler furnaces. However, when the bunkers are full, the coal delivered to the plant is typically deposited on storage piles. Bulldozers are used to spread coal out on these storage piles and to reclaim coal from the piles when it is needed in the plant. Bulldozers are also used to manage coal piles to reduce the risk of fires and to minimize loss from erosion due to wind and rain. Coal handlers who use bulldozers must know how to operate them safely and correctly, and how to take care of them properly. This training program focuses on the use of bulldozers in coal handling operations. Emphasis is placed on practical applications, inspection procedures, minor maintenance procedures, and basic operating procedures.
