Serving Perrysburg Since 1973

217 W. Third St. Perrysburg, OH

(419) 874-3139

CURRENT OFFICE HOURS: Monday-Friday 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Closing May 5th!

Last day to drop off equipment: March 26th!


Mini-Engine has been a proud member of the Perrysburg community for over 49 years. We have had the privilege to serve the people of NW Ohio and grow many relationships with customers across the decades. As we have mentioned in previous announcements we have been in the process of selling the business as we prepare for retirement. That process has moved forward. We apologize for any confusion or misinterpretations of our prior announcements. Unfortunately, we are not selling the business but rather the building. That means Mini-Engine itself will be closing and replaced with a business of another kind. We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause for those in need of small-engine repair work. However, we are confident that the new owners have just as much pride in this community.

In preparation for the sale of the building we will be slowly selling the rest of our stock and will cease taking repair orders as of March 26th, 2022. If you have any equipment you know you will need repaired or tuned up for the next year we highly recommend getting it into the shop as soon as possible! The business itself is set to close May 5th. We are committed to completing any orders that come to us by March 26th, however, we will remain open longer to complete any remaining orders.

If you have any interest in purchasing any of our equipment or inventory please contact us at (419) 874-3139 or email us at [email protected]. We are looking to liquidate our stock as much as possible before May 5th.

Thank you to everyone for supporting us for the past 49 years! It has been an absolute delight to be your go to shop for repair work. We have prided ourselves on providing quality repair work and a friendly customer experience in the shop. We have developed many wonderful relationships with customers over the years and look forward to running into those customers around town instead of in the shop.

Thank you again and God bless!

Meet Our Amazing Team!

Mike and Barb Smith

Mike's dad, Merle, founded Mini-Engine Repair, Inc. in 1973. Mike and Barb are committed to continuing Merle's tradition of operating with integrity, skill and a customers-first approach in all things.

Mike is exceptionally gifted and highly skilled at small engine repair. He has always been hands-on in the business and loves finding and fixing problems that other shops have been unable to find. You could say that his workbench is is playground - because he so thoroughly enjoys what he does.

Barb is the ray of sunshine at Mini-Engine Repair. She keeps things running smoothly and is our customer service watchdog. Her heart for people comes through in everything she does. If you stop in, you can expect to leave with a bounce in your step because of Barb's energy, enthusiasm and encouraging way.

Bobbie Luall​en

Bobbie has sadly passed away as of May 12, 2021. She lived to experience 89 years of challenges, accomplishments, and love. Everyone that knew her remembers her kindness and infectious smile. Many customers at Mini-Engine may recall her as the "cookie lady" because of her weekly delivery of homemade chocolate-chip cookies. They were the tastiest cookies east of the Mississippi!

We were blessed to have Bobbie working in the shop from 1989-2020, 31 years in total! She retired at the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic, but continued to make her batches of cookies for customers to enjoy. She will be forever missed and fondly remembered as we continue to move forward and serve our community.

Jeff and Karl

Our technicians are the lifeblood of Mini-Engine Repair. Jeff has been with us for over 35 years and Karl has been here for over 22 years. They are experts in their field and have extensive experience on mini-engines ranging from handhelds, to mowers, to generators, and more! They strive to put out quality work with their ample knowledge of all things mechanical.

Austin Berkebile

Austin started with us in July of 2020 while continuing the pursuit of his degree in Social Studies education. He plans to be a team member with us until he starts his career as a teacher. As a Perrysburg native, Austin graduated from Perrysburg High School in 2018 and has held a job of some form since he was 12 years old. Fun fact, Austin's father, Tom Berkebile, worked with us back in 1975!

After the retirement of Bobbie we were in need of some extra help at the front counter and Austin has happily stepped up to the plate. He can be seen helping rescreen and handling the technological side of the operations here at Mini-Engine. On many occasions it will also be Austin who greets you as you walk in or talk with over the phone. We're happy to have him here and see his smiling face everyday!
