We would prep jobs early in the morning for scheduled pivot set ups or repairs. Then drive to the field or location of the pivot and do any and everything on them. We fixed, repaired, maintained, built, and trenched underground in for enter pivot irrigation systems. I was sent to Reinke school so I learned a lot on the electrical and structural side of pivots. The manager there is great and teaches others a lot of knowledge on these systems and is patient with new comers. Other co-workers teach and share their knowledge and experience about pivots and show good teamwork. The hardest part of the job is you work in all the elements whether its rain, snow, humid, hot, cold, ect. The best part of the job is there is so much to learn on these machines that you will never be bored.
