This report analyses the Chinese market for crawler dozers over the last five years, and is an update of the subject last covered in Off-Highway Research’s Chinese Service in April 2019. The findings presented in this report are based on Off-Highway Research’s Chinese Database Service and on an interview programme undertaken in China with the industry’s leading manufacturers and their distributors during the first quarter of 2021.
Crawler dozers operating in China range from the smallest 80 horsepower models to machines up to 960 horsepower, and are classified into three types of drive: mechanical drive, hydrodynamic (or hydraulic torque converter) drive and hydrostatic drive. The mechanical drive machines are regarded as having outdated technology, but are still preferred by some traditional customers. The hydrodynamic models are currently most popular among manufacturers and customers, and these dominate demand. Hydrostatic crawler dozers have been gradually accepted by the market, but may well increase in popularity as a result of the marketing efforts of leading suppliers.
