Considerable strain is caused by the constant vibration of the equipment and the jerking and jolting from operating over rough surfaces.

Because of the location of some of the controls and attachments, the operators are frequently required to work in awkward or strained positions.

The work is strenuous because of the generally larger pieces of equipment and the requirement for more frequent adjustments under more adverse operating conditions.

Working Conditions: Work is performed in all types of weather, often in an open driver's seat or platform, on hills, slopes, grades, rolling surfaces, and forests.

May be exposed to injury due to the possibility of the equipment overturning.

Is subject to noise, vibration, dust, dirt, and fumes from the motor and exhaust.

The operation of larger and more complicated equipment in more difficult circumstances increases the exposure to injury, overturning, noise, and vibration.
