Shwaders Tractor Blowing services residential properties in Richfield, Bloomington, and east Edina. If you would like a quote for a commercial property, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our tractors are safe for use on asphalt and concrete driveways. We do not service pavers, gravel, dirt, nor stamped concrete.
We do not service alley driveways, driveways on very busy streets, nor driveways narrower than ten feet wide.
Steep/sloped driveways pose a unique challenge for our tractors and may not be a good fit for the service, depending on how steep they are and how well the homeowner can keep the driveway salted and clear of ice.
All branches that hang over driveways must be trimmed to at least 10 feet high to allow clearance.
Snowfall Service Trigger
Shwaders tractors service their routes for any snowfall where total snow accumulation that sticks on pavement is at least one inch.
Shwaders does not guarantee snow will be removed within a particular time frame or by a certain time of day.
Our tractors typically begin their routes when the snow stops falling, but start times may vary depending on the severity and timing of the storm.
If an open-up is required, our tractors will begin their routes before the snow stops falling to do an initial pass and then follow immediately with a full clearing. Customers will be informed of the plan in these situations via text message.
For overnight snowfalls between one and two inches, routes may begin at 7:00 a.m., allowing us to more efficiently clear city plow ridges.
For most snowfalls (one to two inches), main routes typically take less than eight hours to complete, with return service for ridges to follow when necessary.
