I have been a customer for years, and the past couple of times I have been there, things have greatly improved. I bought a high end Stilh blower there that I later learned was hard to start. I put up with it but heading onto this year's

Worst EVER! They made me 6 chains the wrong size, when I returned to have them Shortened, I had to drop them off for 2 days, for 20 STIHL chains!!! That they should stock!

I have to agree with the poor reviews here. These guys are usually pretty rude and offer the poorest of service. They are located just down the road from me and I spent several thousand dollars buying equipment right after I moved here.

We needed our mower serviced, heard from a friend that Knabe Outdoor Power was great, and they are. Our mower would not start, and we were informed by the technicians there, that one of the main problems in all small engines, is the fuel, or more specifically the ethanol, in the fuel. We recieved eye opening information, on the harm ethanol does, and the best way to maintain our lawn equipment. We were informed our mower would need a carburator, I asked about rebuilding, and was given the option of replacing vs. rebuilding at almost the same cost, we elected to replace the carburator. The mower runs like a top, and we have since brought items in, as well as purchased new equipment. This is a great shop!

The first reviewer has far more patience than I for B.S. as I have just had my first and last experience with this establishment.
Two weeks ago to the day, I stopped by Southern States and they recommended this company. I expected good, prompt service at the least. Boy, was I wrong..

The counter person said 2 weeks, 1.5 if I was lucky. I was given nothing to show to claim mower when done
.Today, 2 wk to the day, I returned. I was informed that 2 weeks was an estimate on the LOW side. Nothing had been done to it.
I stated, fine, I want it back and will seek help elsewhere.
Apparently the counter man didn't describe the Honda Push mower as the mechanic was looking at riding mowers. When we sorted THAT out, he said "nothing is done because we are waiting on parts. To wit, a carbeurator and a cable. Now, no one called to advise me of these things, I guess I was just expected to fork over my life savings on completion. He also advised, Honda makes no carb kits, the wrong thing to say to the person who sold and maintained the first Honda's in this country in the seventies. A whole carb was needed? It couldn't be cleaned? At this point I knew I was dealing with a parts replacer, not a mechanic. A mechanic can clean a carb, a mechanic can fit a cable sheath, or make a replacement for anything.
I am 62 and can hardly breathe and the guy didn't even offer to help me get it into my car. As I was leaving, I stopped 2 potential customer's from making another mistake. I also stopped by Southern States and advised the manager, Mike of what Knabe was doing. He said he will no longer recommend them to their customers.

I took my Toro walk-behind mower in for repairs on March 27. It was working fine, but had started to smoke and use oil. I thought it might need a ring replacement. I was told it would be 7 - 10 days for the repair when I left it. It is now May 14, almost six weeks later, and my mower is still not finished. I have already had to pay $300 to get my lawn mowed while waiting for these good folks. It would have been far cheaper and better for me to simply buy a new mower! Their standard reason for the delay is that they are very busy. I wish they had been honest when I took it in!

Pros: They were once pretty good.

Cons: Seven weeks and still waiting for mower repair
