Brief history of your operating experience?

I started work on 775 dumpers 10 years ago in Buxton quarry moving on to the 740 ADT and then 982 wheeled loader. I worked on a variety of jobs within the quarry. I then went on to loading road trucks and trains.
I moved to the Hope cement quarry in 2019, learning loading from the face on a 990.
I then went on to learn the 390 excavator, D8 dozer and most recently grader.
I always work with mobile crushers and screens.
