My Dad is a Civil Engineer and so I've always been around construction equipment. Sometimes when times were tough Dad would take me with him on jobs while my mother worked. Lots of times it would be tough for him to try and get his job done with me around, but the toughest construction workers get real soft with a kid around. So I rode on many a machine as a child.
I too really love the feeling of pushing a big blade of something around, feeling the power, smelling the smoke. A grin so big it'll about take my face off... :)

Well,my story,for what its worth goes like this(readers digest version)!I'm a third generation Operating Engineer-which means I'm a union heavy equip.operator.As far back as Ican remember,operating-not driving as some people call it-is all I ever wanted to do.My Grandfather was a crane operator& shovel operator in 20's & 30's and in turn brought my Dad into the trade.My Dad also was a crane operator,but he went on to learn how to move dirt,too.He was a helluva 'hoe man and could run most everything.Of course,that rubbed off on three out of four sons.He put me on a 1963 Fordson SuperMajor diesel backhoe when I was 10-forever hooked!! This will be my 14th year in the Operating Engineers,i've run equip from D9's to little John Deere 350's to huge track hoes all the way down to rubber tired hoes.Scrapers,rollers,loaders-I,m never gonna be a millionaire but I;m havin' a lot fun!
