Hire a Heavy Equipment Mechanic

 

Heavy equipment mechanics are not your ordinary mechanics. What is it that sets them apart? The job title gives us a helpful hint. Think truck lifts, tractors, cranes, bulldozers, and other heavy-duty equipment. Heavy equipment mechanics know the ins and outs of these mega engines. They are skilled individuals who take charge of servicing, repairing, and inspecting heavy machinery. 

 

Heavy Equipment Mechanics work for companies in different industries like farming, railway, and construction. Need to have farming equipment fixed? Is there a problem with a crane on a construction site? Out in the field, within company factories, or up in the air, Heavy Equipment Mechanics work in different settings and are exposed to different elements. They possess in-depth knowledge of engines, hydraulics, electrical systems, and more. 

 

Creating a job description that is accurate and complete helps hiring managers in a lot of ways. Not only does it serve as a guide for job seekers, but it is also an invitation for them to apply. Be sure to include all the necessary information for candidates. 

 

Responsibilities of a Heavy Equipment Mechanic

 

Heavy equipment mechanics repair trucks, tractors, cranes, front-end loaders, bulldozers, and other heavy machinery for any sort of malfunction. However, one essential aspect of their job is to conduct routine inspections as well. Doing so provides maintenance checks on heavy equipment and prevents any damage from happening in the first place. 

 

Heavy equipment mechanics typically drive to the location or job site. They determine the condition of equipment through diagnostic tests and computerized testing materials, carefully examining all the parts, and identify the root cause of the problem. Once the cause is detected, heavy equipment mechanics diagnose the extent of repair needed or if there is a need to replace any component. They also notify the department or supervisor involved about the repair details and cost estimate.

 

Heavy equipment mechanics repair or replace defective components and systems using appropriate tools. Also, they lubricate and clean the equipment. Additionally, heavy equipment mechanics give tips and instructions about proper maintenance of the machines. They schedule regular tune-ups and checks with the management. 

 

Lastly, heavy equipment mechanics maintain a record of all the work they do, including details of assessment, repair, parts replaced, and other information for reference. They follow all safety protocols and wear protective gear as necessary. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Heavy Equipment Mechanic

 

For candidates to apply as a heavy equipment mechanic, a high school diploma or GED is required. However, additional study on heavy equipment mechanics is an advantage. Additionally, a certification as a heavy equipment mechanic and a valid driver’s license are required. Previous experience in the same role is a plus.

 

To be successful in this role, candidates must have a thorough knowledge of the design, construction, and maintenance of a wide range of heavy equipment. Because the work entails lifting, moving, and working with heavy equipment, candidates must have physical strength, excellent manual dexterity, and hand-eye coordination. Candidates must also be willing to stand for extended periods. The ideal candidate is a problem-solver who has the necessary mechanical, technical, and troubleshooting skills. Lastly, candidates must have strong communication skills and the ability to follow written and verbal instructions.
