Plot holes 

When Sully and Peter are stealing the snowblower from the Tip Top construction yard, Peter has to climb the fence to get in. Once in, Sully throws him a bolt cutter to cut the chain holding the snowblower. Why didn't they just use the bolt cutter to get in instead of climbing the fence? And if that wasn't possible, how did they get the snowblower out?
