As many of us suspected, it was not a “bulldozer”. It was a backhoe, and as can be seen in the photo, it was a Volvo. Here’s a description from a witness:

The man took the bulldozer in Haines City on Saturday and repeatedly destroyed Biden signs in full view of people who live in the neighborhood, witnesses said. James Blight was charged with grand theft auto and trespassing, according to the Haines City Police Department.
Former Vice Mayor Adam Burgess lives in the central Florida neighborhood, which he said is predominantly Black. He called it a hate crime.
“This man came onto my property, took the two Joe Biden signs I had in my yard and then came back with a bulldozer to run down my fence,” Burgess told Bay News 9.
He also knocked down a city speed limit sign and other signs.
Blight said he was drunk and can’t remember.
