Your Outdoor Equipment is Our Commitment

At Arn's Equipment Ltd., we’re committed to offering you the latest in outdoor power equipment parts and products - at the best prices and with unparalleled service. That’s quite a promise, we know. But we’re confident we’ll be able to deliver on our promise of a great customer experience. Why? It's simple: we’ve had over 70 years and 4 generations to get it right. 

We’re Older Than Dirt

It’s considered impolite to talk about age but we’re pleased to say we’ve been a family-run and Calgary-based business since 1946. It all started with Great-uncle Arn Cummins. While on active duty with the Air Force during WWII, Arn started planning for his family’s future. In 1943 he purchased a plot of land for $450 in north-west Calgary. And, when he was discharged in April, 1946, he began building his business. 

 On September 4th, The Bike Shop opened.

About Us

The Bike Shop specialized in Bike and General Repairs. However, it wasn’t long before Arn started diversifying their product offerings while honing in on his strength as an outdoor equipment provider. Once gas powered rotary lawnmowers were added to the product line-up, a need for a name change became clear. So, in 1949, Arn’s Bike Shop officially became Arn’s Equipment and Sharpening Service.

We’re Not Your Typical Box Store 

As a member of the local community for 70 years, we feel personally invested in your success. Over the years, we’ve witnessed what trends have faded. And we’ve observed what brands have withstood the test of time. Our expertly trained staff are happy to share this insight with you, so you can make an informed decision about your outdoor equipment.


We also understand the importance of building and honoring relationships. Outdoor equipment is a significant investment, whether you’re a professional landscaper or a motivated homeowner. That’s why we’ve been an authorized dealer of trusted brands like Gravely and Stihl since 1962 and 1980. So that we can receive training straight from the source and offer you the best quality products.

We’re grateful for the lasting partnerships we’ve formed over the years – with our customers, suppliers and staff.

Our Mission 

When you’re buying a specialized piece of equipment, it’s unfamiliar. Too often, you’ll buy the wrong features. Or maybe it’s something that you can’t maintain or repair. At Arn’s, we:

  • service and carry all the parts for our brands.
  • promise a quick turnaround on any repairs.
  • provide, demos, training and maintenance instruction on all our equipment.

“We’re here to be your long-term partner in landscaping success.”
