Small engine repair is a vocational occupation that involves the maintenance and repair of small engines: low-power internal combustion engines (gasoline/petrol) or electric engines. Equipment repaired includes chain saws, string trimmers, leaf blowers, snow blowers, lawn mowers, wood chippers, go-karts and sometimes more powerful engines used in outboard motors, snowmobiles, and motorcycles. While often touted as a separate job by commercial vocational schools, it may also be a skill someone uses as part of a larger job, such as rancher or park ranger.

Who will attend the teacher conference?”
—Fran Sussner Rodgers (20th century)
