2-STROKE / 4 STROKE SERVICE & REPAIR

2-Stoke / 4 Stroke engines include those found in lawnmowers, chainsaws, string trimmers, and other yard care equipment. We can assist in the maintenance or repair back to peak performance, making it run more efficiently. In addition, your equipment should produce fewer emissions. Regular tune-ups can save money in costly repairs down the road. In addition, if you encounter a certain problem, such as hitting a rock with your lawnmower, or it suddenly becomes difficult to start or if it makes strange noises or smells we have technicians on-site to get it checked out for you.

GENERATOR REPAIR & MAINTENANCE SERVICES

Your standby generator engine is very similar to a vehicle’s engine and, just like your car, it needs regular maintenance to make sure it runs every time. A planned maintenance program can be tailored to your needs. These programs include regularly scheduled fluid and filter changes, environmentally safe disposal of used fluids, and complete testing of the system. A planned maintenance program helps identify minor problems with equipment and correct them before they become major problems, ensuring your backup power supply is ready to perform when you need it most. As with any mechanical system, poorly maintained standby generators are more prone to failure, which is why manufacturers require proper maintenance as a condition of the warranty.

GENERATOR SYSTEM (LEVEL 1)
INSPECTION

Inspection of the general physical condition to include:

  • Cooling System: Inspection of radiator/heat exchanger, hoses, connections, capacities, fan belts, block heater, and water pump and freeze protection, conditioners.
  • Starting System: Inspection of batteries, battery charger, starting motor and alternator.
  • Lube Oil System: Inspection of oil level, oil pressure and oil for contaminates.
  • Fuel System: Inspection of governor and controls, fuel pump, filters, day tank and pump. Natural gas and liquid propane pressure/leak testing and adjustments.
  • Air Induction Exhaust System: Inspection of air inlet system, exhaust manifold, exhaust system, intake louvers, and exhaust louvers.
  • Engine Monitors & Safety Controls: Inspection and testing of safety controls, remote annunciators/alarms, and gauges.
  • Power Generator: Inspection of brushes, slip rings, rotor, stator and wiring.
  • Generator Controls: Inspection of controls and safety shut down/alarms.
  • Rodent Infestation: Inspection of and cleaning debris/nesting material to promote safe operation and emergency power.

NOTE: INSPECTION AND/OR TESTING FAILURES, might require replacement part, materials, and additional labor.

GENERATOR SYSTEM (LEVEL 2)
PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

Level 2 Service includes all inspections noted for a Level 1:

  • Cooling System: Includes testing for leaks, coolant for contaminates and strength. Replace filters.
  • Fuel system: Includes testing for contaminants, fuel system pressure, if needed. Replace filters.
  • Engine Gas Fired: Includes ignition system testing of wires, plugs, cap, rotor, coil packs and sensors.
  • Lube Oil System: Includes replacement of filter and oil.
  • Starting System: Includes inspection and testing of batteries, battery charger, starting motor and alternator.
  • Engine Monitors & Safety Controls: Includes testing of gauges and safety controls. Recalibration of the manufacturer’s specifications if possible.
  • Power Generator: Includes testing and cleaning of the brushes, slip rings, rotor and stator.
  • Generator Control: Includes cleaning and testing of the control system performance level per the manufacturer’s specifications and programming.

4-Stroke vs. 2-Stroke

A 4-stroke engine is like a miniature version of your car’s engine. These are found mainly on larger equipment such as lawnmowers. Smaller hand-held equipment like string trimmers and chainsaws use much simpler and lighter-weight 2-stroke engines.

Basically, the main difference between the two is that 4-stroke engines keep the lubricating oil and gasoline separate. There are complex mechanisms for doing this while also managing combustion and power.

A 2-strokeengine uses a gas/oil mixture. That allows them to eliminate a lot of heavy parts, but they have their own complexity that’s different from 4-stroke engines. Additionally, since the oil goes into the ignition chamber, 2-stroke engines require a special kind of oil that provides both lubrication and easy combustion.

Both types also run at much higher speeds than larger car engines. And almost all are air-cooled while car and truck engines are almost all liquid cooled.

Lawnmower Tune-up

  • Clean
  • Check ignition
  • Replace spark plug(s)
  • Clean fuel system
  • Clean/overhaul carburetor
  • Replace air filter
  • Sharpen blade

OPTIONAL SERVICES

  • Generator Load Bank Testing: Load bank testing is a way of validating the correct operational performance and battery autonomy of the UPS system. It tests the UPS and generator under load conditions. It is most often carried out during preventative maintenance.
  • Automatic Transfer Switch Preventative Maintenance: Replace the control system computer back up memory (battery with new and reprogram). Verify the sequence of operation with a thorough NFPA 100 testing.
