Love Getting Your Hands Dirty?

Somewhere out there in the world, thousands of diesel mechanics are hard at work each and every day. Many have families to support, mortgages to pay, groceries to buy, and countless dreams and goals to realize: and let’s not forget the trash that needs taking out.

However, the one thing every diesel mechanic has in common is-they love getting their hands dirty.

A Day in the life:

You wake up countless times each night, quietly listening for the sounds of a diesel engine somewhere out there in the matrix. It’s OK, because it’s who you are. You’re a diesel mechanic! The dream world you slip into each night is a world filled with diesel power, efficiency, and durability.

You don’t have to be told that the world’s workhorse is the diesel engine, because you know it’s hard at work everywhere big power is needed: from cruise ships and drilling platforms, to power stations, farm equipment, railroads, and mining.

Each day if filled with wrenching, and you’d work from sunup to sundown it they’d let you, and the grease and grime on your hands would stay there if you didn’t have to tidy-up for lunch or dinner.

The days might be short or long for a diesel mechanic, depending on the task. For the gentlemen: When you come home with a five-o’clock shadow, dirty clothes and hockey hair, the sight of you might just make you significant other weak in the knees. For the ladies: The sight of a wrench in your hand and oil-can hands; beats the aroma of an expensive perfume any day.

There’s a bit of an allure about someone that doesn’t mind getting their hands, clothes, and body dirty. However, amidst all the sights of grimy diesel engine oil, and the smell of diesel fuel: it doesn’t hurt for a diesel mechanic to smell good.

There are a lot of reasons to be a diesel mechanic, and having dirty hands is only one of them. Why not check into the career training options available in Diesel Technology, and request our WyoTech DVD today!
