Heavy Equipment Mechanic

Who are We? 

Rummel Construction, Inc. is a Heavy Civil General Contractor that’s been working in AZ and the Southwest USA since 1996. We self-perform the majority of our work and have a large fleet of Caterpillar heavy equipment (Scrapers, Dozers, Excavators, Motor Graders) that we own, operate and maintain in house.


At any one given time, we have dozens of earthmoving projects happening around the state. Each site could have 4, 10 or 20 pieces of earthmoving equipment working each day. Naturally, parts will need repair or replacement and this is where our team of field mechanics, service technicians and shop mechanics come into play.

Repairs that can be completed in the field are taken care of by field Heavy Equipment Mechanics and their helper. If needed we will transport equipment back into the shop for major repairs.
