This report analyses the market in Italy for crawler dozers, referred to in Italian as apripisti, and crawler loaders, called pale cingulate, and is an update on the subject last covered in Off‑Highway Research’s European Service in August 2014.
The range of crawler dozers now available runs from the smallest, under 100 horsepower models to those of over 800 horsepower that are manufactured by Caterpillar and Komatsu. In practice, however, the majority of crawler dozers sold in Italy is in the 130-260 horsepower range. Models with a power output of more than 400 horsepower are a rare sight.
Crawler dozers have suffered in relation to the ongoing popularity of crawler excavators, even if they are still an essential tool in some operations. The majority of current sales is for use in the construction sector, with industrial use the next biggest end-user segment, although these are increasingly affected via the medium of rental.
