Geniuses. You can read the details in the L.A. Times here: California moves toward ban on gas lawnmowers and leaf blowers
This will also include chainsaws. So basically to do any yard work is going to cost twice as much and will require expensive batteries and of course electricity which doesn’t grow on trees. A landscape industry representative is saying that a crew of landscapers are gonna need a bunch of batteries to work all day:
Another major expense will be batteries. Bray said a three-person landscaping crew will need to carry 30 to 40 fully charged batteries to power its equipment during a full day’s work.
Those batteries are hugely expensive and in my experience don’t have a terribly long service life.
You can be sure that this will also lead to calls to import even more little brown people with sombreros to rake lawns for the wealthy elite liberals like Marc Berman. Oh and Berman….
I knew it before I looked up the old “Early Life” section on Wikipedia but I went ahead and searched it anyway and it was what I expected as it is Every Single Time.
That madhouse of a state just keeps getting more insane.
Look for the old fashioned, non motorized push mower to make a comeback in Kalifornia SSR. What's ironic is my 93 year old mom still has grandpa's push mower, circa late 1940's still stored away under the back porch. I'll have to check it out to see what condition it's in. Grandpa always kept the blades real sharp & well greased. I remember cutting his lawn with it well over 60 years ago. Always had to rake up the yard waste afterwards. Also, had to keep the grass cut short & that's obvious. Good exercise & no need to worry about fuel, oil, spark plugs, etc. Well as they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same! Who knows, after the coming collapse of the system, we may all chuck the modern or is it post modern world & return to our agronomic roots.
No gasoline powered equipment. Can we get a propane powered chain saw or trenching machine? I predict diesel generators will be popular. Everything heavier, louder, more expensive, and less efficient. If I didn't know better I'd say Democrats were involved!
What cracks me up about this is our local Amish bishop just last weekend gave the OK for that church to use gas powered mowers so now Indiana Amish are more technologically advanced and less restricted than Californians.
I think it has to be "zero emissions" so that would also include diesel or propane.
Hahahaha! Knowingly giving AIDS is legal but lawnmowers are illegal.
As long as you can still drop a load on the sidewalk, cuz priorities ya know.
