In July of 2020 during the pandemic, when we were 9 and 10 years old, my brother and I decided to start a business. One morning, we found a free curbside push mower posted on the Nexdoor App. We picked it up, repaired it, did a tune up, cleaned it, and sold it the next day on Facebook Marketplace. That was the beginning of what is now Small Engine Flippers! As of the Fall of 2021 we have flipped over 150 small engines and still going! We have flipped push mowers, snow blowers, tillers, generators, blowers, trimmers, and edgers. We are grateful to our neighbors for their support in helping us get our business started! Thank You!!

We take used small engine equipment running or not and repair them and sell them. By doing business with Small Engine Flippers everyone wins! Not only are you getting a freshly tuned up machine, we are saving machines that most likely would have gone to the landfill! Just some of the benefits are below:
Our company pays special attention to the details of our work to ensure the complete satisfaction of each client. Even though we don't offer a warranty on the lawn equipment we sell, we have a thorough inspection and repair process we use at our shop prior to posting them on the market.
Do you have a small engine machine that you would like to donate? We pickup yard equipment that is working or not within 30 miles of Windsor, Colorado.
We do have limited space so we only pickup mowers, blower, and trimmers from April - August and snow blowers from September - April.
For other small engine equipment that are not seasonal like generators we pick-up year around. Final pickup depends on if we have enough room in our shop and final inspection by us to determine if it's serviceable. In addition, we do not have trailer so it will have be able to fit in the back of a pickup truck. If you are donating a mower, please include the bag if you have it. We do reserve the right to not pickup or accept your small equipment.
To make easy and efficient pickup process we prefer the following process:
Our post from March on Nextdoor has received a lot attention this year with a lot of neighbors donating and buying equipment. Also, we've had a lot of satisfied customers. Thank you!
It's springtime and we have posted our first batch of mowers for 2022. We should have more posted each weekend through the summer. Also, we are currently picking up mowers, generators, pressure washers, and other small engine equipment - please donate today.
A big shout out to Micah Claycamp at micahdoodles.com for the awesome logo design. You can see the process of our logo design here:

Question: "Can you repair our small engine and we pay you?"
Answer: No, that is not part of our business plan. We understand that you may just want your equipment serviced/repaired, however we have limited time due to school, sports, and work so we only take donated equipment. However, you can trade-in your equipment and get $20 off of most of the things we currently have on the market.
Question: "Do you warranty the equipment you sale?"
Answer: No, even though we go through a great deal of detail to make sure it's in tip-top shape when you buy it we do not warranty them.
Question: "Do you mow lawns?"
Answer: No, we have been staying busy with our current business plan and don't offer mowing services. We have sold many mowers to other entrepreneurs that have started their own mowing business enterprise.
Question: "Do you buy lawn equipment?"
Answer: Yes, for certain types and brands of lawn equipment. We understand that some equipment like Honda push mowers, older John Deere mowers, Snapper HiVac, generators, and commercial mowers have more value. We can look at it and give you an offer - just keep in mind we have to make sure it's worth flipping.
Question: "Do you deliver?"
Answer: Generally no we don't deliver, but contact us and we will consider delivery for an additional charge. We do pickup mowers for donation within 30 miles of Windsor, Colorado usually within 48 hours of contacting us.
