Established in 1954, Rev-Cut Mower has been operating in the same building in the City of Cocoa for more than 60 years. Originally owned by the Tompkins family, entrepreneurialism did not start with the mower business for Dan, Kate, Dave and Dale Tompkins. The family-run fruit stand adjacent to the Tompkins’ home sparked interest in business ownership, which lead to the founding of Rev-Cut Mower. The business’s most notable sale was that of the Tompkins’ own two-cycle mower for only $59.00, which came with lifetime sharpening. It’s this dedication to customer satisfaction that will guarantee business success for another 60 years.
In 1983, current owners, Bob La Pontny and Jackie Campeau La Pontny acquired Rev-Cut Mower, expanding the stock to include the Stihl and Echo brands. In 1990, the business went through yet another expansion, this time increasing the size of the building. What started out as a mere 1,000 square foot mom and pop facility is now a 10,000 square foot showroom and shop servicing over 15 different brands. Bob and Jackie retired from the business in 2012, leaving the day-to-day operations to Sales & Services Manager Bill Peters.
Bill has been with Rev-Cut for 25 years and plans to continue shaping the business at the customers’ request. Brands currently found at Rev-Cut Mower are Echo, Gravely, Snapper, Stihl and Toro.
