Asphalt Milling Machine Operator – Top

It takes a two-person team to smoothly and precisely operate a $1 million dollar asphalt milling machine. As an “Asphalt Milling Machine – Top Operator,” you are a critical part of that team. 

Your primary responsibility is, basically, driving the machine. You are in control as the milling machine travels down the work path. Need to start going left? That’s all you. Need to slow down some? Yup, that’s you again. This position is also responsible for making sure that the asphalt that’s being milled is properly loaded into trucks to be hauled away. You do all this with a joystick on the dashboard. Think of it as the most expensive video game controller you’ll ever use. 

But the most important part of this position is working closely with the “Ground Operator.” The “Ground Operator” is responsible for making sure the machine mills the exact amount from the pavement surface. They are constantly monitoring the road ahead and are constantly communicating with the Top Operator. To be successful, you must be able to work as a team.
