Deep Ripper Operators for Large Cropping Farm - Mingenew, WA
4 position(s) | As soon as possible
|Job #||30640||Location||WA - Regional|
|Industry||Agriculture||Direction||4 hours north of Perth|
|Hours per week||84 ($25-30)|
A 22,000 hectare controlled traffic cropping farm near Mingenew, WA (4 hours north of Perth) requires experienced tractor drivers for deep ripping, starting as soon as possible.
Deep ripping will consist of driving a John Deere 9570 RX (Quadtrac) tractor pulling a TTQ deep ripper.
There are 2 tractors running for 24 hours, so these four people will swap 12 hour shifts on the tractor.
If operators are capable, there may be an opportunity to stay on as air seeder operators during seeding on John Deere 9520 RX (Quadtrac) tractors towing a 60 ft seed bar. The farm has 3 air seeders running 24 hour shifts, so applicants must be prepared to work day or night shift.
If operators are not experienced enough to operate air seeders, they will remain on deep rippers. When machines aren't running, staff will be required to do general farm labouring and machinery servicing.
Pay rate on offer between $25-30, depending on experience. Good accommodation provided (donga with own bathroom) provided on farm with meals included during seeding.
Great experience for someone wanting to work on modern gear for a large-scale cropping operation.
