My unit doesn't run right, now what?
In 1980, William Baker, originally from North Carolina, came down with his family to Melbourne Florida in search of a business. A-1 Tractor World, at 2299 Aurora Road was available,
so he purchased it. He later changed the name to A-1 Tractor & Mower.
Michael Starr was a sales rep for Central Florida Engines, which was a distributor for Briggs & Stratton, Kohler, and Tecumseh & called on A-1 Tractor & Mower frequently. He always had a passion for small engine repair & lawn mowers.
In 1983, Michael was hired on as Store Manager by Mr. Baker, & over the years became a Briggs & Stratton Master Technician, a Certified Silver Stihl Technician, Kawasaki Engines Pro Service Technician, & a Kohler Expert Dealer.
It was through the store that Michael met Mr. Baker's daughter, Lorie, & they married soon after.
In 2000, Mr. Baker retired & sold the business to Lorie & Michael. Today, they both run the day-to-day operations with the help of their Lead Technician Tad, who has been with them for 29 years, Bookkeeper/Marketing Assistant Kathleen, & Parts Specialist/Customer Support Dean.
In 2017, Lorie & Michael decided on constructing a new building for the back, & in an effort to keep things new & fresh, they decided to change the name of their store to A-1 Of Melbourne.
But the A-1 Tractor & Mower reputation will not change!
