Let me make it perfectly clear that "low emission gas mowers and trimmers" is absolute and total BULLSHIT!

Have you ever seen emissions testing results for lawnmowers? Didn't think so. Fuel injection, computerized engine management and catalytic converters are absolutely necessary to be able to honestly use the words "low emission" for any internal combustion engine.

New gas powered mowers have none of these expensive features and they won't until it is legislated.

All they do is increase the manufacturing tolerances a little and are a bit more careful initially adjusting the carburetor at the factory. Which means that maybe it will be a little bit cleaner for the first year or so, after that, there's probably no benefit.

This program could be so good if it just left out the gas mowers.
