    My company is throwing me in a 627B next week and I need as many tips as posibble. I am an excavator operator along with dozer loader and all other aspects. Just haven’t had the chance in a pan yet. Thanks

    Get an operator manual as fast as you can. Are they going to have you sit with an experienced guy for at least a couple of cycles?

    If you're running push-pull, make friends with the other operators, If not make friends with the push cat guys. It wont take long to get the hang of it if you watch the other guys and get cut a little slack as you learn. Most guys wont have a problem doing a little schooling on lunch break.
