Small engine mechanics regularly work on power equipment ranging from snowmobiles to chainsaws. When equipment is broke down, mechanics use many strategies to diagnose the source and the extent of the problem. Small engine mechanics determine mechanical, electrical, and fuel problems and make necessary repairs.
Mechanics use a variety of hand tools, including screwdrivers, wrenches, and pliers, for many common tasks.
MECHANICS ARE OFTEN EXPECTED TO BUY THEIR OWN HAND TOOLS.
