Several people insist on taking low wages as a Heavy Equipment Mechanic. I have worked both shop and field service for over 15 years. A good journey level mechanic should make between 22.00 and 35.00 an hour. I know some rural areas like to pay less, but that's because you allow them to pay less. In rural area, 22.00 should be the bottom for a good journeyman. I got called out to a company recently to service a loader with weak hydraulics, the foreman said there mechanic was out on medical leave. He had hurt his back doing heads on an engine. After conversation for a while I found out that he only pays his 8 year veteran Heavy Equipment Mechanic 12.00 an hour. How much is your expertise and your back worth?? Turn them down if the wage is not right
