Brush Guard For Dozer
I made this brush guard for an Allis-Chalmers HD 19 dozer which my neighbor Dean Scheel uses for clearing timber and straightening out ditches. I built the guard after a log went over the top of the blade and into the radiator. An 1$-in. high extension welded to the top of the blade keeps tree limbs from penetrating the radiator. Steel arms protect the hood. The entire framework is made from 3 by 4 in. box tubing and 1/4-in. plate. The operator is protected by expanded steel mesh sides which divert small tree branches. The entire structure, except for the welded extension, can be lifted off by removing four 1-in. dia. steel pins from brackets that I welded to the dozer.
