Bergen, N.Y. 14416. We have lighter work to be done also. The PB100 could use a little polishing to bring the paint back to life, so if you can wax? We need you. ... See MoreSee Less

We have a couple of projects going on Saturday morning at 8am at the groomer barn. We will be replacing the belt tensioner and pulley on the Tucker. The main thing that will happen is that we need to replace/repair one of the tracks on this machine and it is not a 2 person job. Please indicate if you can come in the comments. We really need your help. Let's get this equipment ready to roll for this winter. ... See MoreSee Less
