Who We Are


A hobby led to the start of a small garage business and eventually became the full service and equipment sales business known today as Gills Small Engine.  Founded in 1975, our company has become a reliable source for quality equipment and support in the landscaping industry in Alvin, Texas.

Our team members are passionate about educating people on proper maintenance of their equipment and the various levels of quality in various product lines.  Employees in our store strive to provide exceptional service and go the extra mile for our customers. We try to help all customers as best as we can, even if it means referring them elsewhere if we are unable to provide exactly what they need. Located near the Business 35 and Adoue intersection, you’ll find our store just south of Hwy 6. Take Hwy 6 to Alvin and turn right on Business 35, continue approximately for .5 miles then turn right on West Adoue.

Gills Small Engine has a reputation of carrying only superior merchandise in our store – that is why we choose to represent the STIHL product line. Though the majority of the STIHL equipment our clients purchase is used for their home, such as chainsaws and blowers, we carry equipment for landscaping professionals as well. We believe in quality work and selling products at a fair price. Our company cares about each visitor’s experience and hopes that they leave our store satisfied. 

Independent We Stand
We are very proud to be a retailer of the STIHL product line. As an independent Dealer, we can provide many services that the big box chain stores just can't match. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always ready to help you select the equipment that meets your specific needs. We can offer fast, professional service for your STIHL equipment after the sale. Your equipment comes fully assembled and ready to use, and our staff can give you in-store safety and operating demonstrations so that you can get started on your tasks as soon as you get home.

In support of independent retail stores across that country, STIHL is a proud sponsor of Independent We Stand - a nationwide movement supporting independently owned businesses and the role they serve in local economies. You can continue to support the cause by shopping at your area's locally owned businesses, including your neighborhood independent STIHL Dealer.
