Associated Equipment Distributors (AED) has technical assessments that will assist you in measuring the skills of existing service techs or job applicants. The assessments are tailored to meet the needs of the equipment industry. We use the assessments up front in the hiring process to help us make the right hire.
The questions on the assessment evaluate technicians’ knowledge in subject areas such as diesel engine, power trains, hydraulics/hydrostatics, and more. They were created by a team of technical experts broadly representing, manufacturers, dealers and technical colleges with equipment programs and are aligned with AED National Construction Equipment Technical Standards. AED has created an informational video on their technical assessments program that was filmed at Martin Implement’s dealership. Click here to view.

We can’t say it enough: skid steers and compact track loaders are some of the most versatile pieces of equipment on a job site. That versatility comes from the heart of these machines — their hydraulic systems.
