Ben Rylant


I've been a Heavy Equipment Operator for 8+ years, 3/4 of that time being spent on a bulldozer. I'm highly experienced and skilled at operating a finish bulldozer, including blue- topping and slope work, with or without agps. I'm also proficient at operating an excavator, scraper, and front-end loader (rubber tire and track-type). I have experience driving heavy-haul dumpers as well as on-road trucks. My most notable achievements include working on such job as; the Toyota-Mazda plant in Greenbrier, Al., the Atlas V rocket testing facility, United Launch Alliance in Decatur, Al., Gate 9 expansion project, Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Al., and many other residential and commercial developments across north and central Alabama.
