Used Bulldozer Sales

Used bulldozer prices remained relatively flat during the 12-month period from December 1, 2022 to November 30, 2023, according to Fusable’s EquipmentWatch market trend data.

The average price tag for a used bulldozer was $236,493 in November 2023 compared to $235,596 in November 2022. The average age of used bulldozers decreased slightly during the period from 10.1 to 9.9 years. The average age and price were calculated on 85,003 resale listings during the period in the EquipmentWatch database.

Over the last five years, average prices for used motor bulldozers have in general increased, peaking at $265,090 in the third quarter of 2021.

EquipmentWatch defines fair market value (FMV) as the monetary value of an asset that can be expected in a transaction with a single seller and single buyer, neither of whom is under any compulsion or time restriction to complete the transaction. FMV for heavy equipment is most closely associated with the private, resale market, as opposed to the public, auction market.
