Started in Spring 2016, Tanglewood Mechanical mainly focused on lifting and aerial equipment but quickly expanded in to heavy equipment and agricultural equipment to meet customers needs. We continued to expand our services over the years to include construction equipment, off road vehicles and engine / transmission rebuilding.
In 2021 we expanded into small equipment by becoming an authorized service center for Mecanair. We also became an Amsoil retailer offering a complete line of synthetic lubricants.
The Tanglewood name comes from my great grandfather's name for the farm, Tanglewood Briar. Started in 1910, Dan I McIntosh built a barn and small house on the property and began clearing land to farm. In 1913 Dan almost lost his life when the house was destroyed by fire. He sold the farm but bought it back two years later and built the current house.
February 1928 saw the loss of the barn, equipment and livestock to fire. That fall the current concrete stable was constructed with the hay barn being added to the top in 1950. My grandfather took over the farm and continued to expand it until the early 2000's. I purchased the property in 2014 and began work to preserve the history of the property and reworking it to my needs.
Steve was born and raised in Apple Hill. Following in his dad's footsteps, he developed an affinity for fixing cars. It was clear very early that he was gifted in working with his hands, and fixing things that were broken, and it came as no surprise to anyone that Steve grew up as a mechanic.
Steve married his high school sweetheart, Sarah, and together they have three girls. Sarah, and the girls, are very good at continuously breaking things to keep Steve busy outside of when he's working on clients' equipment.
A true country boy, when he's not fixing "all the things" that are broken, you can find Steve hiding from Sarah ( and her thousands of reno plans ) on his dirt bike or in his man cave.
