This article is about the Machine Robo Rescue character. For the character from the 1980s Machine Robo franchises, see Bulldozer Robo.

The MR-03S Bulldozer Robo (ブルドーザーロボ) are Supporter Robo that are part of Machine Robo Rescue's Yellow Gears, as part of the Drill Team.

The four Bulldozer Robo combine with Drill Robo to form Hyper Drill Robo. Each has limited AI, but have picked up the boisterous mannerisms of their Leader Robo, and as a result act like his cheerleading squad. They're also idiots, basically.

The Drill Team were one of the first Machine Robo teams to be activated. Commence the Rescue Combination!! A Bulldozer Robo was meant to be taking part in the Supporter Robo race that made up one of the MRR drills but was stationary due to Daichi Hayami having cried off with a stomach upset. However, when the bulk of the cadets and instructor Musashi Miyajima were trapped in an underwater subway tunnel by a Gura Gorro some gentle encouragement from Sayuri Suizenji and a push from Bone, Daichi volunteered to pilot Drill Robo to the rescue, with the Bulldozer Robo following. On arrival, Sasaki ordered Daichi to activate a ZONE. Despite his strength, Drill struggled against the Gura Gorro mainly through his over-enthusiasm. After forming his Hyper Mode, Daichi was able to use his uncanny skill to judge distances to turn the fight in their favour before they saved their friends. It's Party Time! Drill Robo They later joined the MRR's efforts to deal with the eruption of Kaga Mountain, joining with Drill Robo to form Hyper Mode, helping Fire Robo and Police Robo to fell empty buildings in order to contain the lava, using Daichi's precise calculations. Following the successful rescue, Daichi was confirmed as the team's permanent Robo Master. Aim to be a Robo Master! Yellow Gears were sent to Egypt after Saki, the daughter of Professor Murayoshi, became trapped in a pyramid in Saqqara. After the cadets got her to safety despite a Gura Gorro attack, Daichi then commanded him into Hyper Mode, and Drill clobbered the Gura Gorro. However, the Drill Team then had to help rebuild the pyramid. Laughter Can Save the World! During mock battles at the MRR open day Hyper Drill Robo was defeated by Hyper Jet Robo. And Taiyoh is Fine! After Jay recovered Stealth Robo's K-BOY and reactivated the Tank Robo, Chief Bitou ordered the Drill and Police Teams into action to back up the outmatched Jet Robo. However, having achieved his objective Jay chose to retreat rather than fight for the time being. The Invincible Hyper Stealth Robo!


The team later arrived in Nanagahake in time to save Ken from a fiery death. The cadet activated his Hyper Mode, and Drill helped Fire Robo drive off Stealth Robo. Ken's Rescue Spirit! Yellow Gears were then called to Marine Park, which was experiencing strange vibrations. With the owner in denial over the danger, Drill was forced to wait outside while Daichi and Sayuri went in to investigate as paying customers. They soon found that the park's supports were being weakened by a Gura Gorro and began rescue efforts. That done, Drill entered Hyper Mode and dispatched the attacker. Call Out! Gear Dump Robo When Marie, her father and Professor Tōru Suidōbashi became trapped underwater due to problems with the Cube 1 submersible the Drill Team were sent along to help in Gear Dump. However, as Drill couldn't swim there was little they could do; thankfully Shō was sent down in a second Cube and was able to activate the new Submarine Robo, who was able to rescue the trio. I am Submarine Robo The Drill Team were sent as backup when Submarine Robo then went off to free a trapped whale from an iceberg, only to get frozen by a Gura Gorro. Drill was able to get Submarine Robo free to fight the attacker, though along the way he once again got himself waterlogged and was chided by Marie during another trip to the repair bay. Do You Like Hangars? After Taiyoh and Jet Robo were knocked out of orbit by Stealth Robo battling near Ikaros 1 in Earth orbit, the Drill Team joined the response. The massed number of MRR Machine Robo were able to persuade Stealth Robo to keep his distance. Good Luck Taiyoh The Drill Team were dispatched to deal with an oil pipeline accident but once it was under control, Daichi realised it was an act of intentional sabotage performed by Colonel Hazard. Enter! BL Machine Robo


After a holiday for the cadets on Sayuri's island mansion was accidentally disrupted by a pair of vacationing Gura Gorros, the Drill Team were summoned to reinforce Submarine Robo. First he arrived covered in seagrass, startling the Disasters pair who mistook him for a water demon, and then he didn't ask any questions about Ken's request he loan Submarine Robo the Bulldozer Robo so he could perform an EX Combination and raise a sunken pirate vessel. Summer Holiday! Fear Vacation When Yellow Gears were assigned to help with the filming of the Ninja Mama movie - starring Daichi's mother Saeko Homura - the Drill Team wasted little time in getting involved, with Drill and a trio of his Supporter Robo rapidly cast as various costume-clad giant-size villains. When a Gura Gorro tried to kidnap Saeko as part of Colonel Hazard's plan to recruit the fictional Ninja Mama the Drill Team sprang into action, with the one not in a costume helping Daichi Umeda before combining with its' team-mates to defeat the attacker. However, in the scuffle the film shot so far was destroyed. Director Hota and producer Anao weren't worried though, considering the day's filming to have been merely a rehearsal - a prospect that terrified the Drill Team and the cadets. I am the Mother of Daichi The Drill Team were unable to help the Red Wings team work evacuating plane passengers from the Amazon as they were called to deal with a cave-in in Europe. Survival of the Fittest! The Drill Team joined Alice, Sayuri and Lin in representing MRR at the Kansai Disaster Prevention Festival, going through his moves for the crowd. When the trio of cadets found a wounded rogue Gura Gorro on the run from BL Police Robo, Gyro Robo performed an EX Combination with the Bulldozer Robo to get the strength to defeat the Disaster. Salute to the Gura Gorro Along with the other Leader Robo, Drill Robo was disabled by a freak resonance when the liner Poseidon's engine was damaged by a collision with an oil tanker near Rescue Headquarters. The cadets swung into action with just the Supporter Robo while the Professor worked on the problem. Machine Robo Out of Action!


As Kaiser-G's plans reached fruition and he threatened the island of Kanameshima all of MRR were scrambled to try and stop him. However, they were unable to do much against Kaiser-G. Activate, Kaiser-G! Jet and V Stealth continued to attack but were again easily defeated, and knocked into a volcano. The rest of MRR were forced to withdraw and deal with the catastrophes caused by Kaiser-G triggering numerous other volcanos on the Pacific ring of fire. Kaiser-G was able to move on to Tokyo, setting the meteorite Tartarus on a collision course with Earth. A Looming Catastrophe! All of MRR scrambled to fight him but Hyper Drill Robo again found himself unable to combat Kaiser-G, who was eventually defeated by the joint efforts of the cadets Hyper Shuttle Robo, V Stealth Robo and Machine Commander Robo. All Hands on Deck, Save the Planet! The defeat of Kaiser-G and the Disasters didn't end MRR's work, however, and even on the day of their graduation the Drill Team had to help dispose of an old unexploded bomb - done in an extremely underwhelming fashion - and recover a large submarine. Fly, MRR!

Following the founding of International Hyper Rescue, the Drill Team remained attached to MRR. Sortie!
