Have some issues with my body so took a course after discussions and direction. I took the rubber tire backhoe course at I.H.E. up here in Winfield. Would love to do full machine package but it's like $20,000 and the course I chose is all I could afford and it's the most bought every year and versatile.
Early sat. Am make up day. (my machine had a flat one day).

Haven't run a backhoe yet but its always fun playing in the dirt with an excavator or a dozer free lessons from the neighbor on his equipment is nice. But since I couldn't afford the schooling for operator I took the pre-app for mechanic. Now I work on Tractors and implements instead of construction equipment.

I used to work in civil laying pipe sanitary, storm, etc. and had keys to all with driving a.r.t. For a year mOstly pre-load and + terrain. Company was sketchy so I left but operators always let me play after hours on dozer, excavator etc. :)
