Abstract: The article analyzes a rational scheme of bulldozer technology of complex surface layer-wise extraction of peat raw materials and wood remains, which contributes to energy and resource saving. Complete extraction of useful components from peat deposits is achieved based on the environmental principles of rational use of natural resources. Agro-industrial and environmental protection are currently becoming promising directions for the use of peat raw materials. The ways of technical retooling and enhancing the efficiency of equipment operation are considered with account for the scale factor of the peat-mining companies. The advantages of the peat mining technology, which can be used in small-scale peat mining companies, are shown. The choice of equipment for the bulldozer technology is made with consideration of the limiting conditions for its application, reduction of the energy intensity of the process; equipment match by technical specifications; versatility and multitask capability.
