In Bend, Machinist Anthony Tilker creates solutions – sometimes from scratch. After all, he may be working on a snowplow that’s 40 years old, and they just don’t make parts for some of those old but sturdy beasts.

“Every day is different,” Tilker says, “but you’re always making something better.”

He’s been a machinist for 12 years, and he says, “I think it’s a great career.” See some of our snowplows in action!
