You'll troubleshoot and perform repairs on a wide variety of equipment, which may include compactors, excavators, loaders, dozers, on-highway trucks, tractors, combines, balers, generators, and more.
Each year, Ziegler offers scholarships to highly qualified students attending our partner schools. All recipients of Ziegler scholarships are offered paid internships.
