Harris Equipment Named Tuthill Authorized Service Center

Harris Equipment has been named an Authorized Tuthill Service Center. Harris Equipment has been a valued channel partner with Tuthill for over 15 years, carrying their full product line and successfully selling blowers and blower packages in northern Illinois and Indiana.

In 2016, Tuthill was proud to announce Gary Pollack and his team at Harris Equipment had met the Tuthill standards to become an Authorized Service Center for WI, MI and northern IL – the only Authorized Service Center in the Midwest! Since the announcement, Harris Equipment has already seen the positive impact they have made in the region. 

As an Authorized Tuthill Service Center, Harris Equipment is capable of servicing all Tuthill blower and vacuum technology, including positive displacement bi-lobe and tri-lobe blowers, as well as rotary piston, rotary vane, liquid ring and dry screw vacuums. As an Authorized Service Center, they are also able to service other makes and models. Technicians at Harris Equipment are trained on all different lubrication styles and have skill sets which can handle up to 12” gear diameters in vacuums and blowers. Their 46,000-sf. facility houses several hoists capable of lifting up to 5 and even 10 tons, as well as custom fabricated tooling specific to just blower repair.
