Neff Livestock and Equipment
In search of Shop Mechanic with Ranch or Farm Experience
Looking for someone who is clean, reliable, a good communicator, hardworking, self-motivated, adaptive and has a positive attitude. Experience in mechanic work in construction or agricultural machinery is a must.
Job description: We have a small farm implement business and a 300 head cow/calf operation in a fairly remote valley in Elko County, NV. It is 50 miles to the nearest town. You must like and be able to live in these conditions. This job is mostly mechanic work, but will also include other aspects of running a small business such as helping customers, selling parts, creating invoices for the work you have done, etc.
As a mechanic, you will be required to troubleshoot, diagnose and repair issues with farm and haying machinery, hydraulic systems, 12 volt electrical systems, diesel engines, etc. Some minor fabrication and welding skill is also expected. You don’t need your own tools, but if you have them, bring them.
The reason this ad is here is we also help out with the ranch work on occasion — it’s pretty much 90% shop/10% ranch. We might be working at the chute one day and repairing a tractor that afternoon. The mechanic work is about half haying equipment, and the other half tractors and so on. We also do field service work, especially during the haying season.
Speaking of haying season, this is a full time job, but during the summer it is six days a week and long hours. If you can handle that for about three months out of the year, we try to reward you with flexibility and fewer hours in the fall and winter.
We have a new shop to work in. We provide housing, utilities, and fuel allowance. Pay and other benefits will depend on your experience. If you are a good fit, we will provide health insurance after three months. If you are committed and thinking long term, there is room to grow with the business. Salary depends on experience and ability. If you enjoy rural life and all it has to offer, we are in a great location with a great community.
Years of experience required: Zero
