I asked Greg’s Small Engine Power Equipment Service & Repair to look at and repair three different Small Engine Machines – a Snow Blower, Rototiller & a Pressure Washer. They were honest and straight forward about needed potential repairs. They said what they were going to do and followed through. The best two things in their Service was not to repair a machine that was not worth repairing and Picking Up and Delivering the Power Equipment. Their Service saved me Money & Time. I certainly would recommend them for your Small Engine Power Equipment Needs. Read more
