The front of this bulldozer is lacking load securement.
I don’t understand what the big deal is about not securing the blade. I don’t know how heavy that blade is but judging by the size of the machine it’s at the very least a couple of tons. Assuming the tractor is secured properly I can’t believe that blade is going anywhere. The wind certainly isn’t going to blow it off and I doubt that it would bounce off, as heavy as it is. If the tractor isn’t secured properly than yes, there’s a problem. Even then, the tractor needs to be secured, not the blade unless I’m missing something.
Securing the front is a requirement, according to Loren Waterman with the Iowa Department of Transportation: “There were two chains on the rear of the dozer and nothing on the front two corners, as required.”
