About Mr. Patt:

Growing up in a rural Pennsylvania community I gained much agricultural experience working in the day
to day operations of crop, dairy and Beef production including the maintenance, repair and service of
various types of trucks and equipment.

I graduated with a Diesel Technicians associate degree from Williamsport Community College in 1981.

Having accumulated over 36 years in the diesel repair field as a technician, shop foreman, head of fleet
maintenance and over 16 years as a shop owner, I have had the pleasure of being factory trained by
Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit, Hino, John Deere and International diesel engines, Kenworth,
International, Hino and Freightliner trucks, Thermo King mobile refrigeration systems, Wabco and
Bendix air brake systems, ZF, Meritor and Eaton Road Ranger transmissions, and Link Belt hydraulic and
electrical systems.
