Have been in the business all my life and operated dozers, loaders blades backhoes excavators etc several years even a roust about in the uranium boom finally decided to do things on my own little did i know we were headed for a recession created by our government.
Still surviving but not much for oil field work in Reno Nevada but have grown over the 5 years where most companies have went down around here.
I think the work can be demanding for some but it gets in your blood either you have it or don't not much in between, THEY DON'T LAST LONG, Mud road then going to dusty rough or snow
i remember a rig move on Mount Talor in Grants New Mexico i had three coats on operating a D8 Dozer draped over my lap it was snowing so hard we couldn't hardly see but we did get the Carmac Rig moved with out sliding off the mountain.
Demanding YES but for those who likes a good job out side in the elements and not siting in a office may find it very rewarding.
As for me always looking to keep my equipment moving.
