  1. Thanks for the info on what to do to become a heavy equipment operator, and how many different companies need them. I was wondering if equipment rental companies send out their own drivers and operators, or if the company renting them would have their own to tun the machines. It would be interesting to be hired to be an operator for a vehicle like a crane, and not have one to operate unless they rent one.

  2. This article does a very good job of explaining the importance of training heavy equipment operators. I would imagine that someone that has this type of training would be hired more often. If it would be crane operator, riggers, or even dump truck drivers.
