Dealership expands to third location in former H-D facility

Ball Equipment, the lawn and powersports superstore with locations in Sandusky and Richmond, Michigan, has opened a third location in Birch Run.

“We’re very excited about the opportunity to further expand the footprint of our business. It is a beautiful facility located in a great community” said Chris Ball, CEO and president of Ball Equipment. “This acquisition allows us to provide a quality customer experience to outdoor enthusiasts from The Great Lakes Bay Region, as well as nearby Genesee, Oakland, Lapeer and other surrounding counties.”

The newly acquired building (formerly Shiawassee Sports Center) and 26,000 square-foot facility is located right off I-75.

The new store will be a Polaris powersports dealer, offering side-by-sides and ATVs and service on all Polaris products. As with Ball’s other stores, it will also sell and service outdoor power equipment, including Ferris, Cub Cadet, Billy Goat, Ariens and Gravely, all of which are popular for lawn care by homeowners, contractors and government entities.

The facility was a Harley-Davidson dealership from 2004-2021. Ball Equipment has kept the service team and will continue to provide parts, service, dyno tuning and winter storage to both loyal and new customers. The dealership is also considering adding additional powersports and lawn and garden brands to this location in the near future. Ball Equipment will initially employ eight workers at the Birch Run location with plans to expand the workforce over time.
