Fuel/Lube Technician

All that big iron moving big dirt burns a whole lot of diesel fuel. While equipment operators are packing up at night, you’re getting started. Driving a mobile gas station / maintenance facility (fuel and lube truck) you go from machine to machine to fill each up with diesel and grease all moving parts. Beyond fueling, you inspect each machine for potential mechanical problems or hazards and coordinate closely with the maintenance team. Everyone involved in the operation depends on you.
