California's policy WILL spread to other states as they try to meet emissions controls and green-house gases mandates. Yes, you can always find a way to get around policy and laws but there's really no need to in this case.

And the big plus that's immediately apparent is that they are much, much quieter. An electric leaf-blower still makes noise with the air movement - but that's not drowned out by straight-through 2-stroke roar.

No more wars with the neighbours over noise pollution!

In case you're still on the fence... where's your petrol powered coffee maker?

Hmmm?

srsly, they are SO much quieter. There's a huge push in my LA burb city to move towards battery powered lawn equipment, heavily targeting leaf blowers.

CARB's policy really help clean our air during the 80s-90s, they can kill all the "small engines" if it helps keep the smog out of our basin.
