Heavy Duty Equipment

My heavy duty life

Alright, today on Repairs101: I just got off work and um… this is the boat I was working on today.

If you look up at the top here is where I was working. You see I’ve got myself a welder’s umbrella set up. I live in Vancouver. Yeah, I don’t know if you know this but it rains here sometimes. So as a Heavy Duty Mechanic you get to work on all kinds of really neat stuff.

There’s really just no end to the possibilities of different kinds of machines you might come in contact with.

So I think that often when I tell people that I’m a mechanic they assume I work on cars. But the fact of the matter is I’m much more of a boat guy, actually.

Somewhat of a forklift guy, lift equipment guy, cranes, straddle cranes especially.

I only wish I had pictures of all the boats that I’ve worked on, because there have been some real beauties.

With the exception of aircraft a Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic can sign off on any mechanical repairs to machinery ranging from small engines on outdoor equipment to gigantic engines in ships.
