What's in a Tune up?

Tuneups differ from machine to machine but typically I'll perform the following:

  • Change the Spark Plug
  • Check and maintain the carburetor and governor
  • Change the Oil (4 cycle)
  • Lubricate the Moving Parts
  • Check the Auger and rubber paddles (if in existence)
  • Change out the shear bolts (if necessary)
  • Check any cables
  • Check the auger belt (if applicable)
  • Wipe down the machine so it's clean and tidy

Paddles, scraper, shear pins replacement is not included in my tuneup but I can do this for an additional fee.

How much is this going to cost?

Most tuneups cost $70 to $90 including parts. If your machine requires additional TLC, I'll charge you for the parts and my time to install them. These prices are subject to change.

Single Stage Tuneup - $70 
Two Stage Tuneup    - $90

Pull cord replacement - $40-$50 (usually)

Belt replacement varies but generally $25 to $50 plus the cost of the belt.
