What started as a hobby for Glen Hoffman, repairing outdoor power equipment, slowly turned into a business in 2002. That is when he opened Hoffman’s Outdoor Power and Repair on Rt. 225 between Halifax and Elizabethville. Over the next two years he began selling quality power equipment lines, and by 2004 he became the local Harman Stoves dealer, selling freestanding models that burn pellets, wood, grain, coal, or gas.
Hoffman's staff of 9 full-time and 1 part-time employees provide delivery and certified installation and service of Harman Stoves, as well as repair and service of power and lawn care equipment. Hoffman's also offers a chimney cleaning and liner installation service with its own certified technicians in-house.
Hoffman's power product lines range from chainsaws, blowers, trimmers, mowers, generators, chippers, snow blowers, pressure washers, and all makes of engines for small power equipment; all of which they service and repair. "We try to offer a higher end, better quality line than the large retailers— and we'll repair just about anything, including hydraulic repairs." Brand names include KIOTI, ECHO, Husqvarna, Kohler, Honda, Kipor, Subaru, and Briggs & Stratton, plus parts for many other brands. We also carry and install the Briggs & Stratton standby generators.
A relatively new outdoor specialty line is Beachcomber hot tubs and spas, which they also deliver, install, and service. A full line of pool supplies including chemicals, covers, etc. is also available. Other outdoor specialties include the Big Green Egg smokers and the Traeger and Green Mountain pellet grills.
Driving by the business you will notice that Hoffman's has become a major supplier of wood pellets, offering many brands of premium hardwood pellets. In March, while supplies last, Hoffman’s offers an early pellet buy. Customers can allocate the number of tons they need for the lowest price available. An easy payment installment plan over the summer so customers can pay for their pellets and have them stored free of charge until they are needed in the fall has been a convenience to the customers and a success for the business. Customers can pick up their pellets by the bag or ton, or arrange for delivery. From May until July 31st, Hoffman’s offers a stove cleaning service at a special discount rate, to encourage customers to maintain their stove’s maximum efficiency.
Hoffman's Outdoor Power and Repair store hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. They are closed on Sundays.
