NOTE: This 2-day Hands-on workshop has been specifically tailored for Service Technicians and Mechanics
TSA has had many requests from Facility Management Departments to develop a workshop that deals with the major servicing and rebuilding of small 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines and electric powered. Routine equipment used in facility maintenance such as lawnmowers, chain saws, pressure washers, weed-eaters, generators, trenchers, tillers, portable pumps, concrete saws, snow blowers… ALL need minor or major servicing at various times.
Servicing or rebuilding engines within the department saves time and money, as opposed to taking equipment to an outside vendor. The inconvenience of having equipment unavailable while it’s in the shop waiting to be worked on, coupled with the high cost of service and repair, plus travel time to and from the vendor, makes doing the work yourself practical and cost effective. In addition, some agencies discard a perfectly good piece of equipment and replace it because it could not be diagnosed and serviced properly in-house.
Emphasis during this workshop will be on operating principles, maintenance programs, run-ability, trouble-shooting, hands-on internal diagnosis & repair, technical steps in parts analysis, installation procedures, & preliminary testing prior to performance testing. The workshop will cover any equipment with a 2-stroke or 4-stroke gas engine and equipment with small electric engines like floor scrubbers, vacuums, saws, and drills. YOU determine what engines you want to have covered. Just tell us the equipment you own and their brand names.
Workshop Times – Both Days, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
