We repair and service most types of garden machinery including chainsaws, blower /vacs, hedgetrimmers, cultivators, strimmers & brushcutters, rotovators, lawnmowers, ride on mowers and compact tractors.
A wide range of parts including oils are kept in stock, some are available on our webshop.

Atco with ransomes clutch

We have made modifications to machinery which would have become obsolete without it, like this atco which had wrecked its multiplate manual clutch, we made modifications to enable this ransommes centrifugal clutch to take its place, the power unit is a 5hp briggs and stratton engine.

allen 218 hover mower

This is an allen 218 hover mower, I remember these being in the showroom when i worked for v.j.rout in 1988, Its an old machine but with regular servicing its usefull life has been prolonged.

Ransomes marquis lawnmower

Here is a Ransommes marquis cylinder mower, it is quite an old machine as can be seen by the villiers 4 stroke power unit, it has been serviced and sharpened and is awaiting collection.

Countax c600 ride on mower service

A Countax c600 hydrostatic ride on mower part way through being serviced, we do a thorough service; clean and check ignition and carburation systems, check and adjust valve clearances, changing filters, oil, fuel and air if needed, changing engine oil, checking the functioning of all controls, lubricating steering, top up and recharge the battery, checking all belts and pulleys and replacing any that have deteriorated, cutting decks are removed and have all old grass and debris removed, underside of deck is painted with red oxide primer, blades are sharpened or replaced and belts checked, jackshafts are lubricated if they have provision for it (some budget machines don't!) The whole machine is cleaned, reasembled and test run.

red horseshoe sunflower

This is an old atco B14 cylinder mower, from memory I think they were given the name commodore, this is in for a service and sharpen, when machines get to this age obtaining parts is getting a little problematic, finding a new bottom blade has caused us a few problems this year.

repairing a hedgecutter

Here is Paul working on a hedgetrimmer, just a repair for a change, to get it running

jug of petrol and water

This image shows quite dramatically how much water can be attracted to the new ethanol blended petrol we all now have to use,
75% of all breakdowns we see are now caused by dirt or water in fuel.
This jug full came from a strimmer that wouldn't run, The lighter coloured liquid at the bottom is water!
When petrol deteriorates (in as little as 3 months!) the ethanol will attack diaphrams and seals and the water content will corrode steel and alloy carburettor parts, ultimately requiring a new carburettor often at considerable expense! Using a fine filter funnel when refuelling and adding something like briggs and stratton fuel fit to your petrol will prevent it!

Servicing, repairs and fitting of accessories to cycles are carried out at a fixed labour rate plus parts including puncture repairs.
A collection and delivery service is offered to the local area for cycles and garden machinery.
