The following elements must be taken into consideration before a final purchase decision is made:
A dozer is of no use if it can’t be driven. An inspection of the tracks, track frame and rollers are essential to ensure that the machine can manoeuvre.

Inspect the bulldozer’s blade to ensure it can move and function. Check that the leading edge is in good condition and does not require replacing. Check the hydraulics, pipes, and cables to ensure quality. Inspect the blade mechanics and all operational parts.
Inspect the scarifier to ensure it can move and function. Check the fork and its teeth, depending on the one that is fitted. Check the hydraulics, pipes, and cables to ensure quality.
It would be beneficial to have an operator on hand to demonstrate the working order of the dozer to give the buyer an exact idea of what they will get for their investment. Have the operator drive and demonstrate all the functioning parts.
