Turf Equipment Technician job

By MICHAEL P OPAY,

I will be graduating in May of 2019 with an AAS degree in Marine, Motorcycle and Power Equipment from Hennepin Technical college in Eden Prairie, MN.  I will be certified in all of these areas with a focus on the Power Equipment side of things.  I focus on lawn mowers and outdoor power equipment and am well versed in Briggs and Stratton as well as Kawasaki and Tecumseh.  

For the last year I have been working as a small engine technician at a local hardware store.  There we work on everything from hand held equipment all the way to zero turn lawn mowers.  I am familiar with 2 and 4 stroke operation and enjoy working on them all.

In the spring and summer of 2018 I had the opportunity to intern at the Les Bolstad Golf Course at the University of Minnesota.  Under the supervision of Chris and Brent I learned the day to day operations of the technician in a golf course setting.  I am familiar with grinding reels and bed knives, as well as the set up of reel mowers.

I am interested in working in the Golf/Turf industry and feel that I am an asset to any company that is looking for a hardworking and reliable technician.  

I am also willing to relocate for the right opportunity.
