Backhoe Operator

Did you have fun playing in the sandpit with toy diggers when you were young? Fancy playing in a bigger sandpit, with bigger machines…..and being paid for it?

You might like to consider training to become a backhoe operator. This machine is basically an overgrown tractor, but the real skill is in the precision of using the front and rear buckets.

Backhoe operators drive backhoes and operate attachments to excavate, break and level earth, rock and other materials.
