MAIN EXHIBITION ENTRANCE HISTORY OF JAPANESE BULLDOZER EXHIBITION
-

1930-1940 OPEN

In prewar times, production of the tractor began due to the need for agricultural development. During the war, mechanization of construction was in high demand at places like airports. However, it was the birth of bulldozers that truly started the history of construction equipment in Japan.

The same manganic cast steel that was used for tanks was used for its crawler. 421 units of this model were produced during the war, and they were heavily used by troops of remounts, for snow removing, and pulling out trees.

Bulldozer OPEN

Since its first emergence in 1951, it took only 50 years for the hydraulic shovel to establish its primary position on construction sites worldwide. Its size ranges from mini to super size depending on the scale of construction, and during the half century, it kept evolving by achieving a minimum rear-swing radius and adapting styles that would work with characteristics of each site. Mirroring the movement of a human hand, a hydraulic shovel will continue to evolve during the 21st century.
