Where to Buy Snow Blowers Right Now

Looking for a snow blower right now? At this time of year, many of us need to keep on top of the snow that’s surrounding us meaning that snow blowers are in high-demand. After all, a snow blower is so much more effective than having to shovel snow plus it’s less physical effort. At this stage in the season, many retailers are running low on stock with delivery times getting longer by the day. Don’t worry though. We’ve found some snow blowers that are still available from top brands such as Cub Cadet, Troy-Bilt, and Snow Joe.

We’ve picked snow blowers with good reviews on their respective sites as well as snow blowers that are actually in stock at the time of writing. With high demand though, we can’t guarantee how long these snow blowers will remain available, however. We’ve also included snow blowers in different price ranges so there should be something for everyone here.

With a snow blower guaranteed to improve your surroundings in a way that a snow shovel just can’t compete with, if you live in an area prone to snow, it’s a smart move to hit that buy button sooner rather than later if you want to commit yourself to less physical effort this season.

What should I know before buying a snow blower?

Snowblowers typically cost several hundred dollars so you want to make sure that you buy the right one for you. That’s why we’ve previously looked at the best snow blowers currently out there, but there are a few other things to consider too.

When deciding, first of all, consider whether you need a gas or electric-powered model. Gas snow blowers tend to be much more powerful but they also require more maintenance. If you only need a snowblower occasionally, this won’t be an issue but you might want to consider it if you’re a regular user of snow clearance equipment. Generally, electric ones are best for small driveways while gas ones clear bigger areas more effectively.

It’s also important to know the difference between single-stage models and two-stage models. All electric snow blowers are single-stage while gas offers both. A single-stage model can’t handle as much as a two-stage model so if you’re dealing with a lot of snowfall, you’ll need a two-stage snowblower.

While searching, you may come across a lot of references to snow throwers. These are basically weaker snow blowers. Aimed at clearing dry and powdery snow rather than thick and wet snow, snow throwers can handle about 8 to 12 inches’ worth of snow while a snowblower can deal with way more. Again, it all depends on where you live as to which option is best for you.

Generally, the more you spend, the more powerful a snowblower you’ll get. Also, consider big-name brands like Troy-Bilt, Ariens, and Snow Joe to ensure you get a good quality snow blower for your home.

Why Walmart Is the Best Place to Buy a Grill on Prime Day
best places to buy groceries online walmart sponsored

Are you keen to add a grill to your garden setup or looking to upgrade an existing aging grill in your backyard? If so, you might think it's a smart move to wait until the Prime Day deals show up on Amazon but, actually, that's not the case when it comes to the best grill deals. Amazon offers some good deals on a range of grills but there's one key retailer that continues to offer a wider variety of grills and at often better prices -- Walmart.
Why is Walmart Better than Amazon for Grills?
Simply put, Walmart has a much larger selection of quality grills than Amazon does. The retailer stocks some major household names like Weber and Dyna-Glo encompassing every budget and requirement imaginable. Check out Walmart's Grill section and you'll see what we mean. Besides all your favorite brands, the site has every type of grill you could possibly need too. Combine that with our look at the best pellet grills, the best portable grills, best camping grills, and the best charcoal grills and you have all the knowledge you could need for buying the right grill for you and your household.

What Kind of Deals Does Walmart Offer?
Typically, Walmart offers larger discounts than Amazon. Alongside The Home Depot, it's the best retailer for grills. Crucially, The Home Depot hasn't confirmed a sale right now while Walmart has its own Walmart Prime Day sale in the form of its Deals for Days sale, so Walmart is the stand-out choice if you're looking for a grill in particular.

Packing for the weather: The hiking gear you need for different climates
Don't let ice or desert conditions ruin your hike. Here's what to pack to stay safe and comfortable
weather with sun and clouds

If you have a good pair of hiking boots and woolen socks, you’re ready to hike — mostly. You know how cold or hot it might get in your region, how much rain you might expect, and how hard the sun is going to beat down on you.

These considerations are even more important when hiking in other regions. The weather in Florida is hot and humid, while the weather in New Mexico will by hot, dry, and maybe colder at night. Taking to the trails in the Pacific Northwest means staying warm and dry in the temperate rainforest, while hiking Wisconsin’s Ice Age trail means bundling up no matter what season you go.

Thoughts of racing a bicycle along a forested single-track trail or a tight city street might soon begin to fill our minds.

Perhaps you're a mountain bike beginner, considering buying your first setup. Maybe you're upgrading from a single-speed.
