M. Ericksen, Inc. began dealing with Portec RMC Division in the late
1970's. At that time we only sold RMC Jet Engine parts, by the early
1980's we were rebuilding jet engines for RMC. The last several
years RMC was involved with jet snow blowers we did all their jet
work. Portec RMC sold the jet snow blower product line to Fairmont
Tamper; they shipped the jet inventory to us for storage, repair and
shipment as needed. For several years we did all of their work;
Fairmont Tamper then decided to sell us their entire jet inventory
and refer all jet work to Olie M. Ericksen, Inc.
It is our experience that it costs 2/3 or less to build
an engine, rather than replacing the engine. All engines are
completely inspected and all damaged parts replaced. Rebuilding
engines today insures engine availability in the foreseeable future.
Most engines that are earmarked for scrap still contain over 67%
usable parts. Our rebuild capabilities
include the jets J-34, J-35, J-47, J-52, J-57, J-79 and most engines
as they come on the market.
Olie M. Ericksen, Inc. produces a fuel control system that
incorporates an automatic overheat shutdown system. Our fuel control
system will give faster, smoother and safer start of your turbine
We have developed a 12-volt starting system which eliminates costly
ignition packs and igniter plugs. This system will work off the
existing diesel 12-volt system. Every rebuilt engine is run on a
test stand before delivery. All rebuilt engines are warranted for
one year. Pick up and delivery can be arranged within a 600-mile
radius of our plant on an overnight basis. We also have training
available to your mechanics, foreman and operators.
Also, Olie M. Ericksen, Inc. can refurbish your jet snow blower
including sand blasting, painting, rewiring and hydraulic and frame
