6 year old in front end loader
 
Took the boy who just turned 6 to a local quarry to get some stone for a job with me. He got to drive some heavy machinery while he was there. He had a smile from ear to ear.

HA! And so would I.

"Yeah I let my kid dump the stone into the dump trailer. I should be getting it back from shop next week."

He can partner up with this kid. Only problem is your son is doing it for fun this kid looks like he is doing it to feed his family.

Cool! I can remember being given the controls of a small airplane at age nine. I was king of the world.

My six year old can get around on a skid steer pretty well. That's about the biggest machine I use, and he begs to come with me every time I rent one. It makes his week if he can drive it for even 5 minutes.
