Good luck, if you’re looking to buy a snow blower in Pictou County.


Leigh Murray stands beside some of the few remaining snow blowers left in stock at Proudfoot Motors. Snow blowers are in scarce supply in Pictou County this year.

Local businesses say they are selling out quick.

An employee at Century Saw and Marine in New Glasgow said they sold out of all Columbia snow blowers last week but have ordered more that will be in next week. Proudfoot Motors said they’re almost out of their stock as well.

Jane Proudfoot said they’ve sold out their stock of Cub Cadet snow blowers, but still have a few higher end Husqvarna ones left.

“Our suppliers are telling us there’s no more left,” she said.

She hopes that they may be able to find some more though.

In addition to the snowblowers that is pushed by individuals, they’re also selling a lot of blowers for tractors and tractors themselves, Proudfoot said. They have plenty of those left in stock to meet demand though.

“That business is really brisk,” she said.

Leigh Murray who has been busy selling the snow blowers at Proudfoots said it’s the busiest he’s seen the products go in his three years there.

“Hopefully it’ll keep up,” he said.
