Heavy Equipment Operator
What would I do?
Heavy equipment operators control equipment by moving levers or foot pedals, operating switches or turning dials. Their job titles generally reflect the types of machines they operate (for example, bulldozer operator, grader operator). However, one operator may operate several types of equipment. Heavy equipment operators generally are trained on the job or take related training programs.
