My name is Jacob Palko

I'm the proud owner of JEM Machine Maintenance. I am here to help you with all of your equipment needs. Looking to buy a lawnmower? We have lots of options to show you! Are you trying to get your good Ol' Homelite XL130 from the 80's back up and running? Feel free to give us a shout to book that in. We fix anything from chainsaws to 20-tonne equipment.

I have been doing "JEM" for about 2 years now and turning wrenches for over a decade. I fell in love with turning wrenches early on into high-school, it was my father who got me into the big equipment though. After graduating high-school I went to Sir Sanford Fleming (Go Knights!) in Lindsay, ON for my 421A Technicians License. After college I worked in the  421A field, after some time I decided that I wanted to try and do my own thing! May, 14th, 2021 JEM Machine Maintenance was created!
