Products commonly found in this classification include, but are not limited to, mowing machines, hay loaders, potato planters, reapers, binders, sidewalk cleaners and sweepers, sewer pumping station equipment, packing case equipment, hydraulic bailing presses, pile driving equipment, pneumatic unloaders, pollution and dust control systems, water screen baskets, pulp and paper mills, overhead cranes and tractors, and other similar heavy machinery. Equipment used by employees working under this class code will vary by location, but may include such things as welding and machine shop apparatuses like shears, punch presses, turrets, and engine lathes, drill presses, milling machines, grinders, boring mills, and gear shapers.
