No Business Like Snow Business at Plymouth Repair Shop
Tim’s Small Engine Repair Shop in Plymouth has seen a surge in repair orders due to February’s record-breaking snowfall. The owner says right now repairs will take a week or two to fix due to the backlog of broken machines.
“We’re probably up 50 percent from last year,” said Tim Christle, owner of Tim’s Small Engine Repair.
He says the excessive amount of snow this year is behind the uptick in customers. The machines are running so often, the stress is putting a lot of wear and tear on the engines.
However, he says customers can take one preventive measure to keep their snowblower out of the shop.
“People leave fuel in over the summer time and It wrecks the carburetor, got to run them out of fuel before storage,” explained Christle. He says repairing a carburetor will cost you about $100.
The business is also seeing many machines coming in for belt repairs. He says depending on the problem, the repair will take anywhere from a week or two to solve.
