Messages from John, the inventor of JohnnyBall

The Art of Excavating

“The best dozer hand I ever knew was Burt. You have a guy like this too! What he had was that direct relationship going on between him and that machine and the passion for the profession he chose. JohnnyBall hits on this right between the eyes. It gives you a true sense of what that machine is doing at a glance. Our model of the heavy use of the rental market means that when that machine hits the ground it better be making money. JohnnyBall helps with this efficiency right away.”

“Do you get it?”

What leading Excavators, Training Schools and Landfill Operators are saying about JohnnyBall:

“Using the Johnny Ball system to train the industries new and existing Operators gives them a tool to reference level and slope of the grade/grades they are working on. I also have used the Johnny Ball system to level the Cranes here at the school, Cranes are required to be within 1% or .57 degrees of level.”
“I get it!” Dan Swiggum, Instructor, Associated Training Services
“We teach operators how to operate the equipment, not how to drive where the GPS is telling them to go. What if the GPS is not working? What you going to do then?.”
“I get it!” Tim Hayes, Instructor, Associated Training Services
