When is the Best Time to Buy a Snow Blower?

Some shoppers purposely wait until Spring to purchase their snow thrower, hoping to find a great deal.

Unfortunately, this strategy rarely works for snow blowers.

How do we know? We already tried it.

Last March, we toured all the local retailers, looking to snag some bargains. In reality, we just found a bunch of junk.

Empty Shelves
The big box stores are very savvy buyers. They don't want to get stuck with excess inventory, so they keep their inventories strategically small.

That's why it's extremely difficult to even find snow blowers in-stock at the end of the season. All of the good stuff is gone in January and even sooner if there has been lots of snow.

Yes, you can probably find a snow blower in-stock in February (unless it's a snowy winter). However, you won't find anything worth buying.

Long Lines for Snow Blowers
Most snow blower manufacturers build a limited supply of snow blowers. Once they sell out, they don't restart production until early summer because they are busy building lawn mowers.

The best time to buy a snow blower is in May or June after the new models are introduced. This way, you can back order a brand new model at a discount price instead of settling for some left over that nobody wants.
