It’s well known that the Nelson/Tasman region has huge forestry, farming and horticulture industries, with the specialist servicing of these industries being well catered for.
However, what was apparent to us at Lowcost Lawnmowers was the lack of a dedicated service and repair business within the Nelson/Tasman district that caters for ALL makes and models of lawnmowers, ride-ons, chainsaws and small engines – all outdoor power equipment.
So, in 2012 and with over 10 years of lawnmower and small engine servicing and repairs under his belt Chris Kelly started a small business called Lowcost Lawnmowers and operated the business from his home address in Stoke.
Chris was fortunate enough to learn his trade under the guidance of one of Christchurch's most reputable small engine mechanics Anthony Duncraft, owner/operator of one of Christchurch's oldest and largest lawnmower repair business's - Cyclone Cycles & Mowers.
Within several months of trading Lowcost Lawnmowers was flourishing and the business has continued to grow to this day as a result of Chris’s skilled workmanship, eye for detail and the support from a substantial and loyal customer base having being established.
In late 2016 Lowcost Lawnmowers was sold to Dennis and Jane Webster. Dennis is a certified A grade Diesel mechanic and a fully qualified motor mechanic – with a passion for all things mechanical.
He has an extensive mechanical background having owned and operated a substantial farm machinery sales and service business in South Otago for a number of years. This business held a number of nationally and internationally known and respected machinery and equipment franchises used on a daily basis across the entire farming, forestry, fishing and hydraulic industries.
Having owned and operated this business Dennis clearly understands the importance of second to none customer service.
With Lowcost Lawnmowers changing hands in February 2017 Dennis has spent time with Chris to add to his already, large skill set & knowledge in all areas of mechanical repairs and service.
Chris and Dennis plan to continue working together at their new premises located at 144 Moutere Highway, Appleby. Richmond.
