After briefly opening another dealership with a partner, Rodriguez decided to shift gears and focus solely on repair work rather than selling new equipment — establishing Bo’s Power Generators and Equipment Repairs. “I started thinking outside of the box and realized repairs would be better investment,” he says. “We focus on parts, repairs, service work and repowers now.”
A Powerful Approach
When an engine is beyond repair, Rodriguez will recommend a repower. “I push repowers because it’s much more cost-effective than replacing an entire piece of equipment,” he says. Performing a repower can help a customer get a higher return on their investment and breathe new life back into their equipment.
He carries a variety of engines in his shop, but Rodriguez often steers repower customers toward Vanguard, the premier Briggs & Stratton line of commercial engines. “I’ve converted many people from die-hard Honda loyalists to Vanguard engines,” he says. “From the hundred-year legacy behind the company to the quality and parts availability — it just performs.”
