We are in a rural area, definitely ďoff the beaten trackĒ. There are
a lot of bigger businesses easier to find and and probably closer to
you than us. I listen for the answer to that myself and this is what
Itís an experience, no Iím not kidding. Who else is going to speed
around with an old
John Deere 140 thatís been
repowered doing wheelies to show you the power it has? If you look
personal tractors you might like
the huge tires he puts on them, the hundreds of pounds of weights,
etc. They look like a monster truck version of a garden tractor.
Strange. O.K. you might think thatís just silly.
Itís obvious Jim ďbleeds greenĒ but he respects other brands of good
quality equipment, even if itís hard to admit sometimes. If you want
your equipment repowered or repaired it doesnít have to be John
Deere. If you catch the guys at the right time you might actually
see them mowing around here with a old Gravely. Sometimes the
garden tractor pullers arenít John
Jim is enthusiastic about what he does, he loves it, heís enjoying
himself. When he tells you he just loves the
Vanguard small engines he isnít
telling you that to sell you one, he really does, thatís how we got
started doing the repowers for everyone else.
Jim will let you try out the small tractors, drive them around, mow
some grass, push some dirt around. My opinion is that you guys like
pushing dirt around the best.
Our ďshop rateĒ, what you pay for repairs per hour, is generally
about $20 to $40 less per hour than our competition. I really hate
calling other businesses that are similar competition, almost all of
them are our friends. We send customers to each other when we canít
help them ourselves, isnít that the way life should be?
Some people prefer smaller
businesses, most the time we do.
Thatís why we like our local Ace Hardware, they have that plumbing
or wiring we need in stock, if we donít know what we need most of
the time they can tell us what we need. If we go back in a month
they will still be stocking that nut or bolt we needed.
We know you like power, we like power, so weíll help you decide on
the equipment or
repower you need and then what you
want. I guess what Iím trying to say is that we listen and pay
attention. Because we arenít so big we can take the time to listen
to each customer. After all a lot of our customers are friends of
We stock a lot of parts and people know it, they are driving past a
lot of other businesses to come to us because we have it. It is
considered unprofitable now to keep much inventory on hand. Oh well,
we do it anyways.
Jim is a
trained and experienced mechanic,
and honest. We promise not to try and sell you something you donít
need, when you bring your vehicle in for repairs you get what you
need and what you want done. Thatís all.
