Brief history of your operating experience?

I first drove a Takeuchi mini digger at just 4 years old. Growing up I spent more time on 360’s as well as backhoes, telehandlers, JCB Fastracs and more. I gained my CPCS for 360 machines at 16. Just after my 18th birthday, I started operating 30-tonne class excavators fitted with Trimble 3D earthworks.
