Joe Pottinger



He was first introduced to plant when he was around 10 years old and his interest in machines really peaked and has been the same ever since. He has always grown up arounds trucks and machines as he used to go to work with his dad at any chance he had even though it involved getting up at 3am and even staying out in the truck. The first time he operated a 360 excavator was when he was around 10ys and instantly loved it and would do it any chance he got using things like cranes, bulldozers/tractors, forklifts. As soon as he was old enough he got his ticket for the 360 excavator and has had the opportunity to work for some great companies in areas like demolition/civils/ working on the services and doing some proper machine operator stuff! He also passed the  test to become a Vacuum Excavator Operator and that was really exciting using a 510ph Mercedes to suck around the live services and other places people were not allowed to go.


“When the opportunity finally arose for me to be able to open amazing new doorways for other people like they did for himself I just had to take it to teach others on these great big bits of kit that I fell In love with so you can too!” – Joes own words.


So even though he is our youngest instructor he has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is now a fully qualified NPORS Tester and NVQ assessor up to Level 4 Supervisor
