Whether you’re buying or renting a mini bulldozer, many of the most important characteristics to consider are the same. The best mini bulldozer will likely be the right size and type for your particular task. Additionally, the specific functional characteristics should be considered, especially when weighing function with price. The machine's manufacturer also can make a difference in your choice, whether it's a new or used mini bulldozer. For example, some models come fully assembled while others require assembly after purchase, especially kits that can be added to lawn mowers.

Specific characteristics often determine whether a mini bulldozer can be considered the best. Bulldozer features such as the tracks, lifting capacity and horsepower can vary depending on the purpose of a machine. Some jobs might require a specific type of blade or a specific amount of power, so choosing the best mini bulldozer often means first determining which features are necessary for your particular task and which are not.

The best mini bulldozer will be the right size for the intended job. For instance, a small bulldozer might be helpful in a small landscaping project, while a larger machine would likely be too powerful. Mini bulldozer types can come in many dimensions, from small "toy" models to fully functional machines. Considering the height, length and weight of a bulldozer also can help to distinguish between standard models and the best ones.

When purchasing a used machine, it is usually important to inspect any service records and maintenance attempts. Some types of mini bulldozers, like those used in heavy-duty jobs, may not last as long as others, especially when purchased used. Considering the type of engine and the size of the blade also can help when attempting to choose the best machine. Better machines will usually have a fully functioning engine and blade.

The machine's manufacturer also can help you determine the best mini bulldozer when compared to many others. Certain companies are known for quality machines, and it is usually important to identify which companies create the best machines. Checking trade publications and user reviews can help when separating the best small bulldozer manufacturer from others. Some manufacturers also offer mini bulldozer parts that can be important for long-term use and maintenance.

Additionally, some manufacturers sell fully assembled machines while others sell kits that must be assembled. The best mini bulldozer for your purposes might be either of these, though fully assembled machines are often considered more reliable than kits. The prices of fully assembled machines and small bulldozer kits can vary widely.
