Grader Operator

When you play pool, the surface of the table has to be flat and true or else you have limited control of where you shoot your target.

A grader operator is skilled at operating the heavy machinery that prepares the ground for construction, mainly for the construction of roads, airport runways and other structures that require flat, smooth surfaces.

Depending on the job, a grader operator may work as part of a small team or with a large crew. Additional technology, such as lasers, may be used to guide the grader operator in preparing the ground levels and cambers for correct drainage.
