Bring Your own Machine!

Bring your own mower, chainsaw, trimmer or other small engine tool to the workshop and Alex will go over things like starting, maintenance, storage and care. This is the hands-on part! Please bring supplies and parts, such as oil, filters and belts, etc.,  with you. These are specific to your mower, and we won't be able to order them in advance. If the machine is non-working, we can do some troubleshooting as time allows, but cannot guarantee that it will leave in running condition. If you don't have a machine to bring, that's OK, you can help fix somebody else's or one of the demo mowers.
