About the Opportunity
Due to ongoing demand and a growing sales base, Pringles Crouch now have multiple opportunities for Diesel Mechanics to join their team in either their Cummins, Wudinna or Crystal Brook branches.
Reporting to the relevant branch Service Manager, the successful applicants will be responsible for performing basic diagnostics and repairs on agricultural and turf equipment and Precision Agriculture products.
Additional day-to-day duties will include, but will not be limited to:
- Maintaining current industry knowledge of John Deere equipment through supplied training and ongoing development of specialist skills (Harvesters, Self-Propelled Sprayers etc.);
- Assisting with Service Department repair work appraisals and participating in repairs;
- Reconditioning used equipment and setting-up new equipment;
- Carrying out repairs and servicing both in the workshop and in-field; and
