When we think of tools, drills and sockets and hammers and saws usually come to mind. But tools encompass much more than the machineries we use to fix or build things. All manner of specialized implements fall into this category, including lawn maintenance equipment and snow removal apparatus.

Our geographic neck of the woods is one where winter is not just a moderate interruption to an otherwise enduring summer. Minnesota winters can be quite fickle. We might see little to no snow until January or February, or we might get buried in early November. Our temperatures can be relatively mild, or we can plunge into sub-zero weather for weeks at a time. The Twin Cities and surrounding areas are no stranger to snow and ice, so being prepared for these uncertainties is a prudent precaution.

Snow blowers are the one tool you don’t want to be without when Mother Nature decides to treat us to a blizzard – and not the ice cream type!  Yes, humanity persisted before the invention of the snow blower, but we also made due prior to the invention of the wheel as well. Although various snow removal devices were explored in the late 1800s, the first practical snow blower was patented in 1925. The wheel is here to stay, and so is the snow blower!

Available in many sizes and power ratings, they make the task of clearing your driveway and sidewalks much more agreeable than doing so by hand with a shovel. Metro Pawn & Gun sees a wide range of snow blowers come into our shop. Some people upgrade to newer or more powerful models while others may downgrade if they have moved to a residence with fewer sidewalks or smaller driveways. Some just sell us their snow blowers because they may have relocated to a dwelling that includes snow removal services or a climate where snow is just something you read about on the news. But if you’re stuck in Minnesota, don’t also be stuck in your driveway!

Metro Pawn & Gun can save you a great deal of work and a lot of money. While getting a brand new, shiny red snow blower at the store for full price might be OK for some people, we feel that a fully functional, slightly used one for a lot less money is a much better idea! Our merchandise is inspected and tested to verify functionality, and our prices simply can’t be beat.

If you are upgrading, downgrading or moving to a place devoid of snow, we are interested in your snow blower. Save yourself the hassle of trying to sell it yourself. Bring it to us and we will make a fair cash offer!
