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.
