MY HUSBAND IS GOING TO SCHOOL AND TRAIN TO BE A HEAVY EQUIPMENT OPERATOR. THIS IS ALL NEW TO HIM AND IM TRYING TO FIND/GOOGLE  INFORMATION FOR HIM SO HE KNOWS WHAT TO EXPECT. SO IF YOUR HUBBY KNOWS ANYTHING OF THIS FEILD OR POSSIBLY CAN GIVE SOME MAJOR POINTERS ON IT,  THATLL BE A HUGE APPRECIATION. THANKS LADIES :)

Oh, I thought this was asking about the size of his "equipment" Wink, wink. 

No is the answer either way.

He likes it, it's just a lot of long hours is the only disadvantage really. The money is good.

My husband is a forklift driver (and can operate other heavy machinery too).  I don't know what kinds of pointers to give, and my husband doesn't speak enough English to give me any (and my Spanish doesn't include words related to his work).  I do know that he studied for his test.  Overall, he says it's pretty easy, but I don't know if that's just because he's done it for years, or if it was easy from the beginning for him (I didn't yet know him when he started).  Sorry I can't help....
