A business that sells and services lawn equipment of numerous kinds and sizes recently opened a new location in Butler County.
Clermont County Equipment in Milford Twp. is filled with traditional lawn mowers and commercial zero-turn mowers. That includes well-know brands like Cub Cadet, Exmark, Stihl and Aline.
Located at 4870 Old Huston Road in north-central Butler County, between Oxford and Middletown, the 6,000-square-foot show room features outdoor power equipment, weed eaters, hand tools, power washers, protective gear and accessories, according to Jaime Lovelace, the store’s general manager.
“Anything that has to do with your lawn, we’re pretty much going to have it, from the smallest to the biggest,” Lovelace said.
There’s also a parts department and a climate-controlled service area that handles all major small engine manufacturers including Kawasaki, Kohler and Briggs & Stratton.
Owned and operated by brothers Bob and Gary Mount, Clermont County Equipment has locations in Milford Twp., Amelia and Milford. A location in Florence, Kentucky, is known as Pleasant Valley Outdoor Power.
Clermont County Equipment is one of the top 10 Cub Cadet dealers in the nation, Lovelace said.
The business replaces Dunkelberger Lawn & Garden Inc., which closed last year. Clermont County Equipment purchased the building at auction Oct. 27 and closed on the deal Dec. 21, he said.
Former Dunkelberger Lawn & Garden owner John Dunkelberger stuck around and now work as head service technician at the recently opened business.
Lovelace, who has 16 years of experience in management and sales, oversees a team of five employees.
“We’ll be hiring more once we get up and running at full speed,” he said.
Hours are 8:30 to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday. For more information, visit www.clermontcountyequipment.com or call 513-523-7063.
