And from what i have heard keep them away from the car dealer on RT. 12 next to Walgreen. i have heard some unsetteling things about them.

why dont you post this somewhere else? none of your posts make sense and have nothing to do with this Antioch Small Engine Repair. I think you are talking about something in Fox lake having to do with drugs? There are several other posts that talk about fox lake 4 wheels which is what i think you are talking about.

I bought a a stihl blower from Greg and o needed the Carb really adjusted and he tried to blame the issue on bad gas. Well let me tell u he is full of gas. Russo's in Gainesville took care of the matter and didn't charge me a penny. I agree with lizard watch out for Greg and Tina. They wont honor a warranty for the life of them. Stay away from Antioch small engine repair. They pray on the weekenders. Locals beware
I worked for the Round Lake Ace Hardware for three years in the "power equipment dept". 80% of ALL, yes ALL, issues were related to old fuel. You people need to start reading your owners manuals... a car can handle old gasoline, ie fuel injectors, a small 2 or 4 stroke engine CANNOT! Grow up, take responsibility for your own ignorance. Be happy that Antioch Small Engine doesn't lie to their customers like Ace Hardware does! Heck, we had a break in back in 2013 where 6 customers pieces of equipment were stolen from the unsecured PE tent, the store manager had us, under threat of firing, call these customers to tell them their equipment was NWF, or not worth fixing. Never told them that their units were STOLEN!!! I couldn't lie to them, and I was fired by Bill, the wimpy store manager. Yah, go to Ace, get ripped off.

To the people that complain.... a business is there to make money, hint... that's why people start and run them. If you can find a part cheaper and can perform your own labor, more power to you. But to cry about bad service, over inflated prices, poor customer service, is akin to this countries self entitled, me- first attitude. Your parents and grandparents would be ashamed of your childish behavior. GROW UP, learn to turn a wrench or SHUT UP!!!

Greg and Tina,
I have really bad gas this morning. It is incessant and horrid.
I am certain it had something to do with the gyros and fries I ate in town yesterday.
Question to you is: Would my bad gas have a direct correlation to the non-start condition I'm experiencing with my Toro snow blower?
Praise the Lord and live your life by the good book! Amen!

In my experience you should never trust a business that wears Jesus on its sleeve. I'd rather trust someone who has to make it right with ME, not with Jesus, if they do something wrong.

We had the worst experience. When we called we were told that it is $30 to quote for repair on our riding tractor. Their website says 24 hrs., they told us 7-10 days. They made us sign to approve for $200 in repairs which we did not want to do, but the woman said they wouldn't accept the mower unless we did that. We were emphatic that we wanted a quote first before any work was done because we did not want to spend more than $30 to see what was wrong. We already knew it needed a new battery and the mechanism to raise and lower the deck. We could get it running, but the PTO wouldn't engage. They called us after 10 days and told us they took out the carburetor and cleaned it and that it needs a new one for $500. I reminded them we wanted a quote before any work was done. They said they were going to charge us for 1.5 hrs. of labor and they also put in a fuel filter that we didn't ask for. We told them we didn't want to spend more than $200 to have it completely fixed. We immediately went to pick it up and they insisted they wouldn't release it unless we paid the balance in cash. This is one of the worst scams I have seen. He did tell me he could scrap it for us if we didn't want to take it back.

I bought a Toro lawnmower engine from them to power my remote control helicopter. It's obviously huge homemade rc model but nonetheless I was flying it out back for the family bbq and the engine went haywire and banked hard left hook my great grandmothers head completely off!! It was a real mess, kids screaming adults were puking everywhere screaming "OH my god what happened!!?" I was so angry because the burgers were perfect and the beer was cold now I had a broken helicopter, pieces of grandma on the pool and no beer or burgers!! Just emergency crews asking dumb questions like why were you flying that monstrous thing near people and is that cocaine under your nose?!!

So did you field dress grandma, throw her on the bbq, and feed the emergency crews?

They are rude and greedy people. His mom and stepfather own Steve's Sports Bar and they are the complete opposite when it comes to business. Shame on them because some people like to support small businesses and they are an example of why people shop at large retailers
