This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in earthworks.

Here is a video about how to operate a bulldozer.

From the video description:
"As a follow-up to our popular “How to Operate a Bulldozer” video, we are back with “How to Operate a Bulldozer - 201!” In this heavy equipment operator training video, will go over the basics of slot dozing, blade positioning and grading in our Komatsu D61 dozer. Have a question/comment? Feel free to leave them below!"

To get certified for this BB, post pictures or a video (2 minutes or shorter) that demonstrate the following:
  - make 100 feet of proper road with a bulldozer
  - must have a crown or other form of drainage
  - must include side ditches where appropriate
  - seed disturbed soil
Cob is sand, clay and sometimes straw. This tiny ad is made of cob:
