/ What is the stability of concrete cattle guards when used with bulldozers?

Q: Can the concrete cattle guards take being run over by dozers? It is not uncommon to find dozers from smaller D4s to D8s on ranches in NM. How well will they stand up to being driven across by the steel tracked dozers?


A:Yes the HS-20 cattle guard will easily handle the dozer because the weight is well distributed on its long wheel track base. However, you should cushion the top with plywood or boards to keep the sharp steel tracks from grinding or chipping the tops of the cattle guard.
