I set up Garden Machinery in 1999 after
the birth of my first son, to enable me to
combine childcare with repairing any machine
that arrived in the work shop. I soon realised
that there was a demand in the Chew Valley area.
At first I only serviced and repaired mowers,
hedge trimmers and chain saws, but it always
surprised me what can turn up.
I received a phone call one day from someone
having a problem with their "Billy Goat" my
first thought was they needed a vet but I soon
realised there is a garden vacuum called a
"Billy Goat". A repair was made and the
machine sucked up everything in sight.
Some machines when they arrive are beyond repair
so I started to sell brand new machinery. I
believe that it is important that a customer
should be able to try a piece of equipment
before they buy. Being located at Glebe Farm
Stanton Drew, there is plenty of space to
demonstrate and try out the equipment and advise
the customer on the best choice for them.
