Business Spotlight: Black Bear Mobile Maintenance

With more than 23 years of expertise that he gained working on military helicopters and marine engines and systems, John Daggett, Jr. established Black Bear Mobile Maintenance a year ago and is now the leading option in the Sebago Lakes Region for those seeking tractor repair and small-engine service.

Daggett’s business offers the convenience of servicing and making repairs directly at a customer’s location and he works on all types, years and models of tractors.

“We are completely mobile. That is the significant aspect of our business. Competitors offer limited mobile repair, and their prices are considerably higher than mine,” Daggett said. “They also tend to work within their brands they sell where I will work on all brands.” 

In offering full-service tractor repairs on-site, Daggett said that he saves his customers costly transport fees and offers highly competitive pricing usually significantly lower than the competition.

Along with providing tractor repairs, Black Bear Mobile Maintenance can also work on other motorized yard equipment as well.

“We can fix just about anything including snow blowers, lawn tractors, generator engines and UTVs,” Daggett said. “I have a 5-star Google customer rating. I pride myself in my quality of service. I offer dealer- level service at a significant savings. I use all factory parts as long as they are available. I’m also federally licensed to work on A/C systems in tractors.”

Black Bear Mobile Maintenance, a company
that repairs and services tractors and other
motorized yard equipment throughout the
Lakes Region of Maine and beyond.

Based in Harrison, Black Bear Mobile Maintenance covers Southern and Central Maine in a timely manner and is an authorized Kohler Engine Dealer and Warranty Repair Service.

“We repair of all makes and models of riders, compact and full-size tractors. We make sure that all fluids and chemicals are contained and transported off site to be disposed of properly so there is no impact to the environment. We serve all of Cumberland and most surrounding counties,” Daggett said. 

From an early age, Daggett said he knew that he was born to be a mechanic. Growing up his next-door neighbor kept antique cars on his property and as far back as second grade, Daggett could be found studying the mechanical aspects of those vehicles and how they worked.

Eventually Daggett earned an associate of applied science degree specializing in high-performance motorsports.  He served in the U.S. Marine Corps from May 2001 to May 2006 as a heavy lift helicopter flightline mechanic and then began work in the marine industry as a technician servicing marine engines and systems.

For the past five years, he has specialized in working on tractors and diesel engines and says that he loves his business and the opportunity to help his customers get their tractors back to operating in tip-top shape.

“As the only employee of Black Bear Mobile Maintenance, I can focus squarely on delivering exceptional customer service and quality workmanship,” Daggett said. “The customers I work for are grateful for what I do and the mobility of my business so that I can come to where they are.”

Black Bear Mobile Maintenance works on gas and diesel engines, offers spring and winter tune-up service, hydraulic and transmission repair, steering and sheet metal work, complete driveline repairs and a host of other general mechanical or emergency repair work.

With a diverse mechanical background and experience that makes him well suited to trouble shooting and dealing with challenging issues, Daggett is confident he can tackle and resolve the most complex mechanical problems. 

“There is no job too small or too big that I cannot handle,” he said. “And best of all, I come to you, and you can avoid the hassle of doing it yourself.”

His social media reviews are nothing less than outstanding.

John is great. When you call, he actually answers the phone,” said Chris Paquet Przekop on Facebook. He showed up and fixed my lawn mower. It is a great service! An enthusiastic 5 stars for Black Bear Mobile.”

Great service! John serviced my tractor, and I will be using him again. Highly recommend 5 stars,” said Liz Bucco on Facebook.

“Needed hydraulic fluid and oil changed on my John Deere 2520, he got back to me quickly and set up a date, which he kept. Did what he said he'd do for the price he said he'd do it. And he was super friendly. Will 100 percent use him again,” said Jason Libby on Facebook.
