Small-Engine Equipment: Basic maintenance and common repairs

The typical small farm or homestead uses a variety of small-engine equipment: chainsaws, mowers and trimmers, generators, snow blowers, compact tractors, and more. Unfortunately, it's getting harder to find qualified repair services, so many people end up replacing equipment when something goes wrong. Victoria Redhed Miller, an Equipment & Engine Training Council (EETC)-certified small engine technician, provides a brief overview of types of small engines, important routine maintenance, and off-season storage (as well as a discussion of a few common issues that you can easily deal with at home).
