We are the upper Midwest authorized parts and service distributor for the Zamboni® Company. If you need repairs, annual maintenance or a rebuilt or refurbished used Zamboni ice resurfacer, R&R can meet your needs.

Annual Maintenance Plan
Annual preventive maintenance should be performed on every type of Zamboni® ice resurfacer to insure proper safety, operation, and reliability. Proper maintenance will help in the machines ability to make more attractive ice, which will help sell ice time, reduce costly down time and service calls for upcoming ice season. Our maintenance plan covers inspection, replacement and tune-ups. See the maintenance plan details below.

Annual Seminars – Cancelled This Year
Once a year we usually offer a two day in-depth seminar covering preventative maintenance and basic repairs of the various types of Zambonis. Due to the pandemic, we think it’s best for the safety of all involved to cancel this year. We hope a better situation will exist next year and will allow us to hold the seminar. We look forward to seeing everyone safe and healthy.
Ice installation, painting and maintenance are also discussed, including tips on keeping your ice looking good all year. 2019’s seminar will be held August 7th and 8th. Details and registration: 2019 Maintenance Seminar Invitation (PDF).
Painting seminars are similarly postponed.
We also offer painting seminars at your location. Click for details on painting seminars.
