***Experienced heavy equipment operators are needed!

Will operate a trackhoe in the construction and maintenance of roads, bridges, airports, gas and oil pipelines, tunnels, buildings and other structures, in surface mining and quarrying activities and in material handling work.

Required Experience:

Heavy equipment operators use four main types of equipment: back-hoes, bulldozers, front-end loaders and graders. Some operators work with several types of equipment while others choose to specialize:

  • Back-Hoe Operator: uses various attachments to scoop and dump materials, dig trenches, load heavy materials and break rock or concrete
  • Bulldozer Operator: clears and levels land
  • Front-End Loader Operator: picks up loads of earth, rock, sand, gravel or snow, then moves and dumps them
  • Grader Operator: controls the height and angle of grader blades to spread and level earth or other materials such as snow


As a Heavy Equipment Operator, your duties may include the following:

  • Operating heavy equipment such as back-hoes and bulldozers to lift, move or place equipment or materials
  • Inspecting, cleaning, lubricating and refilling equipment


Work Conditions

The standard work week for heavy equipment operators is 40 hours (8 hours a day, 5 days a week). As with many careers in construction, there are peak periods that will require you to work overtime. The number of additional hours you work each week depends on the construction sector and region you work in, and will vary from one job to the next.

As a Heavy Equipment Operator, you will work outdoors on construction sites. You will work closely with other equipment operators and with ground crew.

As with all careers in construction, safety is the top priority. Heavy equipment operators are trained to work safely and take special precautions to protect against injury.
