How to Run and Operate a Caterpillar Dozer Safely

Johnny Hello. I'm new here and a new dozer owner. Ive always run tractors and trucks, but never a tracked machine. Like Alex in the previous post, I could use lots of advice.

Where do I even start here.. Stuff like: Can I "turn" with a loaded blade, or does all work need to happen with both tracks pushing forward? Can I reverse direction without coming to a complete stop (powershift)? And any other Cat D6D tips you'll have would be really appreciated.

Thanks guys!

leonard j etta You can make gradual turns while dozing, however
when you back up to make a new cut,you must
plan your next push as you are backing into possition,thereby nearly eliminating the need for
any correction steering,[I note this while observing
operators] able to tell of their experience,there is
much,much to learn,like playing a piano,cannot learn
from a book,just get on and push.there is no need
for a complete stop with a power shift,if de-cellerator [spell check dont work] is o.k. power
shift is very for-giving in this application.
You would do well by observing another operator.
more questions?
