  1. Some of the repair work I do is oil changes, blade/chain sharpening or replacement, belt replacement, tune-ups, carburetor rebuilding or just about anything related to small engine repair. I mostly work on 4 cycle engines, but do make repairs on higher end 2 cycles engines. Many of today’s 2 cycle gas trimmers found at discount stores do not lend themselves to serious engine repairs, as they are typically built as a throw away item. They can be repaired but the repairs usually will approach or exceed the cost of a new unit.
