About Us

Dr. PullStarts adventures started over 30 years ago in the garage of my parents. I was in my early teens when I developed an obsession for small engines and specifically go karts. As I grew older my passion for cars and carts just grew stronger. while the market for doing this full time was practical in my home town, i would continue to refurbish equipment as a secondary form of income. My mechanical aptitude for working on small engines got me a job in my early 20's as an industrial maintenance mechanic which lead me to a 25 year career in managing industrial trades. This career lead me to Shell Rock, IA, a beautiful town in northeast Iowa near Cedar Falls, IA. The one thing I discovered in this area of is that small engine parts and service were difficult to find. Especially parts. I realized that there was a market here for my experience. So, Dr. PullStart was started!
