We are looking for a heavy equipment operator who enjoys operating both old and new equipment. Some with enclosed cabs, some open to the air. Most of your time will be on a modified Rotobec 80 Elite feeding our firewood processor in Beaver Bank, NS. This takes a light touch and a quick mind. To me it is one of the best jobs in the operation. I love the fresh air, the view from 17 feet up and the challenge of getting just the right amount of wood in the processor. If you have good hand eye coordination, like running equipment and love 3D puzzles we should talk.
