Diesel Fitter FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right diesel fitter for your job

1. What is a diesel fitter?

Diesel fitters are essentially mechanics who specialise in diesel engines of heavy-duty machinery including tractors, earthmoving machinery, trucks, marine rigs and more. These machines are utilised in many industries from farming and mining to construction, so it's important that they're functioning at optimal capacity.

The primary task of mobile diesel fitters is to perform maintenance checks and repairs on the vehicle's engine to keep them in prime working condition. They detect damages and faults in the components and fuel-injection systems.

Each component requires careful analysing and diagnosing to ascertain the damage extent and apply appropriate repair services. Diesel fitters need to adhere to industry regulations and standards when working with heavy-duty equipment on-site.

Diesel fitters are of the utmost importance concerning the repair and inspection of machines in precarious mining or construction sites.

 

2. How much do diesel fitters earn?

Diesel fitting is a demanding job that requires physical performance and a solid skill-set. A broad experience in machine diagnostics and troubleshooting, with basic first-aid and safety training skills, is necessary.

Based on a diesel fitter's skill and qualifications, the starting hourly rate is approximately $58 per hour.

On average, the entry-level payment options may vary from $65,000 to $95,000 per year. However, with improvements in the skill-set or years on the job, an experienced diesel fitter can earn up to $150,000 and more annually.

 

3. What's the difference between diesel fitters and mechanics?

A diesel fitter and a mechanic both work in the same field, on vehicles and engines. However, there are distinct differences in the responsibilities and requirements of each role.

Mechanics are authorised to fix and repair cars or trucks that get broken down or malfunction due to mechanical issues. Additionally, with the changing builds of vehicles incorporating technologically advanced engines and systems, mechanics require complex machinery know-how.

Mobile diesel fitters work on large and heavy-duty machines such as lorries and construction equipment utilising diesel engines. Diesel fitting requires the fitters to be knowledgeable in industrial skills and construction machines to ensure minimal downtime and efficient operation rates.

Although the two professions follow a similar format, the training to qualify as a diesel fitter and a mechanic vastly differ. Moreover, diesel fitting demands mechanical emphasis while mechanics demands technical priority for their jobs.
