.

Is it a ban on A) all gas powered machines currently in service or B) a ban on new sales of gas powered machines?

"A" is highly unlikely (imagine that!) so time to start hoarding machines that are grandfathered in!

good question. not sure if article clarifies this. it would make sense that it would be new sales perhaps. California also considering banning gas powered cars . but that must be new sales.

So, instead of taking an hour to clear my drive it becomes a half day project when recharging batteries is included?

I own a set of EGO battery power tools, but snow blowing and mowing my three acres are two things I still use gas and diesel for.

You may need to try your hand at working on Yamahas too, if you're gonna head north of the border Sadly, that's a tougher skill to acquire, down here.

Irrelevant posts, and post containing irrelevant personal political opinion (more than half of the thread) have been removed.
and thread closed.

Unfortunately its impossible to have a thread like this without the majority of the thread being nothing but useless political ranting against liberals, useless political ranting against Trump, and fights between forum members.
