ABOUT LOU’S TOOLS

We welcome you to our site and look forward to helping you.

I am a Certified Heavy Equipment Operator, General Manager and Mobile Equipment Manager with Thirty plus years of increasing responsibility ranging from, Master Mechanic to Maintenance and Mobile Equipment Manager to Management Consultant and Business Owner.

We are familiar with all aspects of mechanical, electrical and hydraulic repair of off the road heavy equipment and over the road semi tractors and trailers with computerized costing, performance tracking / forecasting, budgeting and personnel management ability.

On a daily basis, Mobile Equipment Mechanics and Heavy Equipment Mechanics diagnose defects and replace damaged or worn parts to ensure proper performance and compliance with manufacturers’ specifications and repairs may consisting of dismantling and reassemble heavy equipment using hand tools and specialized equipment like hydraulic jacks, wenches, come-alongs and hoists.

In a normal work day, another thing that Heavy Equipment Mechanics do is they Clean, lubricate, and perform other routine maintenance work on equipment and vehicles.

Besides the “daily” things that Mobile equipment mechanics and Heavy equipment mechanics do, they Diagnose faults or malfunctions to determine required repairs, using engine diagnostic equipment such as computerized test equipment and calibration devices.

In addition, they Weld or solder broken parts and structural members, using electric or gas welders and soldering tools.

Big tractors, big trucks, big bucks. Mobile equipment mechanics and Heavy equipment mechanics work with vehicles and machines used in farming, construction and railway transport to inspect, repair and maintain them. These mechanics work with the biggest engines and machines to make sure they continue to run safely at optimum efficiency.

Mobile equipment mechanics and Heavy equipment mechanics know how to troubleshoot problems for their industry, and are ready to get dirty when it comes to disassembling and reassembling engines and other components.

Depending on the industry, they may have to work out in a field, fixing farm equipment, or high in the air, repairing a crane. Some mechanics work for a specific company fleet, or may be self-employed and work in a shop. Some heavy equipment mechanics work for the government and work on tanks and other military equipment.

Mobile equipment mechanics and Heavy equipment mechanics do more than just engine repair, and must have knowledge of electrical systems, hydraulics, fuel and brake lines and more and must obtain the proper tools to complete these repairs.

Tools that can be quite expensive are the heart and soul of the Professional Mobile equipment mechanic and Heavy equipment mechanic. We will be adding a wide variety of tools to our site as we find sources starting with Mobile equipment mechanics and Heavy equipment mechanics tools and eventually expanding into plumbing, electrical and somewhere down the road even carpenters tools.
