Default Experience/work wanted

Hi all

I am 31 years of age based in Newport, South Wales but can travel a bit as own an discovery 3 and an defender 110 crew cab.

I have an clean licence with Class 2, can tow on the road legally and current driver CPC and digi tacho card.

I have done my CPCS tests in Artic Dumper Trucks all sizes and wheeled bucket loader also all sizes.

so I'm looking to gain experience in both machines and I can work nights/weekends as well as in the week for more lengthy jobs.

I can work the odd saturday/sunday if it helps!

I have done a week in an landfill so far and that was good fun! interesting an JCB ADT can climb steep slopes and turn 90degree before the top onto an haul road with pretty much bald tyres so it was a good experience.

Does anyone have any work for me? or know anyone?

Well Mogman

To keep the coming in, Im currently working as an multi drop courier in Cardiff for Xmas as well as an minibus driver for an mountain bike park in Merthyr Tydfil which involves driving along slick wet gravel forest/haul roads to the top of the mountain with an trailer loaded with mountain bikes and drop them off at the top so they ride down and i drive back down and pick them up! repeat 12 times a day!

But I'd like to break into the heavy plant quarrying/mining industry driving to start with ADT's and Bucket loaders and progress from there.

Considering doing my EPIC quarry card but can't seem to find any trainers online of these cards in South Wales so will have to ask my local quarry next week.
