About Us


Owner Hector & Reese Velazquez

Hector Velazquez is a multi-talented individual with a background in outdoor power equipment and videography. He started his career as a certified motorcycle technician and has been working in the OPE industry for over 22 years. In addition to running Hector's Shop, he produces educational videos for a variety of clients, including Home Depot's tool rental department and now Hector and his team have won several awards for their instructional videos, including the Edwin Budding Award from in 2018. In addition to video production, Hector's Shop offers small engine repair service, onsite tech training, shop organization consultations, speaking engagements, and hands-on classes.

When I first started working in the OPE industry, I felt lost and unsure of where to turn for guidance. I eventually found a local association with monthly meetings that provided an invaluable source of knowledge and support from my fellow technicians. That experience sparked my passion for helping others who are just starting out in the industry.


Over the past four years, we have traveled across the United States visiting other technicians' shops and gathering insights and ideas from our peers. We have used this knowledge to create educational videos and resources for technicians around the world, with the aim of fostering a culture of continuous learning and improvement in the industry. If you are interested in our services or have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
