Power House Outdoor Equipment in Blairsville, Georgia
Business is good at Power House Outdoor Equipment in Blairsville, Georgia. Owned and operated by Tim and Leighane Ballew, the show room and service department has been open since May 25, 2006.
Power House sells Stihl products including chainsaws, weed eaters, hedge trimmers, leaf blowers, sprayers, and pressure washers to the folks in Union County. All Stihl warranty service is done in-house. The qualified technicians service most major brands.
Tom Ballew has 30 years of experience. He decided to purchase a franchise after attending a couple of trade shows. "The business is family owned." Says Ballew. "My nephew also does engine work. He is a Five-Star Technician."
Power House also sells Gravely residential and commercial lawn mowers. Through their franchise, Power House has access to great deals on other products including Snapper, Poulan, Exmart, Artic Cat, Polaris, and Bad Boy Buggy - a four-wheel drive camo electric golf cart.
Ballew's nephew, Josh Coffman, graduated from NGTC's Clarkesville Campus with a diploma in Marine Engine Technology. His specialty is marine engines but he also works on ATV's, motorcycles, lawn mowers, and chain saws. Josh says, "We also do service calls and sell a complete line of parts. If we don't have what you need, we can get it." The shelves and peg boards look well stocked with saw chains, bars, mower blades, parts, and accessories.
Tom's wife, Leighane, also works at the Blairsville Power House. Leighane keeps the books and helps out in the 1,600 sq. foot show room. She says, "We are a complete outdoor power equipment dealer and service center. We do a lot of lawn mower and marine repairs this time of year. I guess it will be chain saws in the fall."
