Meet one of our expert Mechanics in St. Paul, Cody Giles! Before his time at Esch, Cody worked on small engines such as go-karts, mini bikes, lawnmowers, and snowblowers for his neighbors. When he was 15 he took a job at a local lawnmower shop as the shop "clean-up kid" but quickly moved into a mechanic role. Cody has gained experience through welding school and completing Repair Certification Training from major brands, including Briggs & Stratton, Kohler, Honda, Gold Stihl, Snapper, Toro, and MTD.
Cody joined the Esch Team in 2012 and immediately made an impact on our repair business. Cody's goal as a mechanic is to make the customer's experience as easy as possible! He is able to understand customers' problems and walk them through the repair process to avoid any future downtime. What stands out about Cody, along with the rest of our Repair Team is the extra work they put in to become specialized in a lot of the equipment we sell and repair at Esch. He prides himself and the rest of the team on equipment knowledge and great customer service.
In Cody's free time, he enjoys spending time with his family. In the summer months, he and his family spend a lot of time outdoors. On weekends you can probably find him at the racetrack where he drives in dirt-modified auto races. In the winter Cody enjoys ice fishing and snowmobiling.
