    Wondering if any one knows where to go about getting serious training on the repair of 2 cycle and 4 cycle engine, electrical systems, hydros, etc on the lawn care equipment we use .. Do manufacturers offer it ?? did a search and found some colleges offer it but they are way to far to do a night class thing... or maybe couple of day seminars etc... any thoughts /?? thanks..

    Chris ,
    I see you're from north Jersey. I just received a flyer from Rutgers and they offer a workshop course on small engine repair for the green industry. If you check at Rutgers website you should be able to find something. I believe it's at the Cook college campus. I took a one day course there last year and it was worth the money. Matt

    Sorry I won't be able to make it. Bad timing. The leaves are in full force then and I can't lose the time off. I thinking about taking the turfgrass pest management class Jan. 22. Matt
