As winter starts to bite and the snow starts to fall, many will be thinking of a white Christmas. For many others, the thought of a white Christmas just means more work. Even in winter, there are a lot of heavy equipment operators out there keeping the streets clear of snow and ensuring that traffic flows as clearly as possible.
Yes, heavy equipment is used to keep the streets clear of snow. Sometimes it is a grader, sometimes a front end loader, more commonly it is a specific snow plow, designed to push the snow to kerb. These machines are tough beasts sometimes pushing three or more feet of snow off the roads.
To operate this equipment is no different to their standard day to day use. A grader generally pushes dirt, in winter on the roads, its snow. The principles and training required are no different. The same can be said for front end loaders.
If you fancy being out in the middle of winter keeping the roads open, why not undertake a training course to gain the qualifications to operate heavy equipment.
ATS Heavy Equipment Training Schools can not only provide the training, if your quick you can enroll and receive a great Christmas/New Year discount. The offer ends December 31 so get in now before it’s too late.
