Augers Repair & Maintenance

When you dig a hole, there are a few basic requirements that must be met.  It has to be straight, of a consistent width all the way down and having a flat bottom is usually preferred.  How do you get that with a shovel?  Good luck!

Power augers come to the rescue!  They can be used for big jobs, such as digging fence post holes or decks, where you need a consistent result, often dozens of times over!  With such an important project on the line you need your equipment in top working condition all through the days you’re working.  Get your auger serviced and if needed, repaired by our expert technicians, and you’ll blast through that build in no time!

We know how to maintain and repair tractor mounted post hole diggers , that usually require an auger with a standard 2 in. shaft, often used with a category 1, 2 or 3 tractors.

There are smaller tasks such as gardening chores (planting bulbs, seedlings and plants) where a hand-held power tool (such as a 3/8″ or 1/2″ corded or cordless drill can be used with an auger.

Thinking about installing underground sprinkler lines for watering your yard?   Daunting task, isn’t it?  Especially the part where the line has to pass under your beautifully set walkway or sidewalk.  No worries!  You can use a hand-held auger to create a trough for your PVC sprinkler lines, and pass right under those permanent structures without tearing up all that previously competed work!

How about aerating your lawn, or trees?  Getting water down deep to the roots of a tree that seems to be drying out?  Fertilizing your shrubs and trees?  Augers are so very useful for a multitude of purposes throughout your yard.  The possibilities are limited only by your imagination!

If you’ve invested in an auger and it’s letting you down, contact us.  We’ll fix your auger and get you up and running in no time.

Chainsaw Repair & Maintenance

Chainsaws make quick work of tough cutting jobs!  If  you’ve ever swung an axe to cut down a tree or even just to split some logs for your fireplace, you know what a workout it can be!

But did you know that you can use specialized chainsaws for jobs that don’t even involve trees or wood?  There are specialized chainsaws used by homeowners and construction professionals to cut stone, concrete and brick!

While the chainsaw can make quick work of your project, it can also be a bit scary to use, with it rapidly spinning sharp teeth, and open blade.  One of the most important things you can do to keep yourself and those around you safe when owning a chainsaw is keeping it in a well-maintained state.

Top safety and performance items include making sure your chain teeth are properly sharpened at the correct angle.  This increases the efficiency of your cutting, and reduces kickback which can be dangerous, and vibration which can increase  your fatigue while working, Vibration can introduce long-term health issues in your joints if you use a chainsaw frequently!  Give us your dull chainsaw and we’ll sharpen it to perfection and get you cutting through trees and logs like a hot knife through butter!

Getting a long life out of your equipment also means you need regular tune-ups (just like with a car!).  Carburetor adjustments, filter maintenance and proper lubrication are vital!

We are experiences in all aspects of your chainsaw’s maintenance, repair and performance tuning.  Bring your saw to us for a pre-season tune-up, and end-of-season storage prep.  We’ll keep you spinning without any worries!

Lawnmower Repair & Maintenance

Everyone loves the look of a freshly mowed lawn, but doing the work without the right tools can be exhausting!  Whether you’re cutting a small lawn in your front yard, or multiple acres in a large sprawling property, being able to get the job done quickly, and have a beautiful manicured look is the ultimate goal!

Smaller mowers can be manually or self-propelled (also known as “walk-behind” mowers).  Larger mowers (and most commercial variations) are ridden and resemble the look of a tractor (they are sometimes called lawn tractors!).    There are even stand-up versions, with a zero-degree turning radius!

No matter which mower you use, we can help you keep your machine well tuned, the blades properly sharpened, and repair any problems that come along.  We’ll also winterize your mower to help extend its life cycle and safe you money!

Sharp mower blades protect your turf from tearing, which can lead to poor water absorption, and dry dead grass! We’ll sharpen your lawnmower blades to give you a perfect cut every time.  Come see us at the beginning of the season to get you ready for the spring growth that comes with those April showers!  If you do a lot of cutting during the season, or have many roots or stones on your property, you will probably need to have your blades inspected partway through the season to make sure you haven’t bent anything, or lost the edge on your blades.  Come back to see you when your mower starts under-performing, and we’ll fix the problem and get you cutting like a pro!
