I didn't know about this new California Law coming in 2024 till I seen this.

Don’t know how accurate the job loss numbers are or will be but the ban on gasoline powered tools does start in 2024. Arizona ought to be selling a lot more of those things next year. Like everything else the wackos in Suckramemto pass there are ways to get around it.

My Wife, a force of nature, bought a name brand electric mower and also an electric string trimmer.  I was not on board with it, but in a long marriage, you know how that works! She bought them not for any green reason, but because they were lighter, and she felt handier for her to use.  After a couple of uses, they sit in the corner of the garage.  They did a poor job for a short time before they ran out of juice, even with spare charged batteries.  I suspect the whole issue is that we are supposed to have and do less and be satisfied with the situation.

I don’t know what brand you purchased, but I replaced my gas trimmer with an electric to trim our acre+ that can be challenging. I changed because I have shoulder issues courtesy of Uncle Sam, and starting the gas trimmer simply hurts too much. I did a bit of research and decided on a Ryobi. So far it does everything I want, and I would say I probably use it harder than intended. I also picked up one of their small chain saws that has worked well for what I need. My oldest daughter has a small lot with her house in town and got an electric mower that works well also.

Did you get the 18v or the 40v model? I already have 18v batteries for my other Ryobi tools is why I'm asking.

Thanks

Mrs. Lose is the gardener in our household and she has a bunch of the Riobi electric yard tools and she uses the 40v models. She had a hard time starting the gas power tools as well.

My better half bought the ryobi electric (40v) mower as a backup to our zero turn gas burner. Suprise you can't use water to clean it. Does work fine and is easily portable since it folds up nicely. But really, you can't wash the damn thing.

For the tools I mentioned, the 40v. I have plenty of their 18v as well, including a hedge trimmer

These are Black & Decker, and for very modest use inside her vegetable and flower gardens, no idea of the voltage.  I have a diesel Farmall tractor with mower for the large acreage and a Cub Cadet rider for the "lawn" around the house.  Gas walk behind mower and trimmers for the awkward areas.

Sir, do you have any gas powered tools in the vehicle?

Maybe I should start looking for a gas-powered lawn equipment vendor for EOT? Slap a Ruger or Taylor's or Cimarron sticker on it and the line would be longer than the Ice Cream Chix.

It'll be fun to watch em mow the side of the highway with an electric mower, even with a dump truck load of batteries.

Time to bring it back imo.

Makes good sense to me to go all electric.  I mean how else are the government pukes going to put more people under their control than to put them out of business and getting unemployment and subsidies while taxing the lower and middle classes and letting loopholes for their own go unchallenged

 

BTW, are all California vehicles and other internal combustion driven machines going to convert to all electric as well?  Are all California employees, including all the politicians and and their families and staffs, and all public vehicles and equipment including police, fire, medical and service vehicles and machines be required to convert?  How about out-of-state vehicles such as trucks, cars, buses, airplanes, ships, military equipment, and manufacturing facilities follow suit, too?  How about cigaret, barbecue, fireplace, and other lighters be included?  Candles of all kinds, too?  (I can see churches throughout the state going  along with this.)  Fireplaces, furnaces, cooking heaters of every kind including furnaces, cigars, cigarets, including marijuana, and pipes of every kind should also be included.  How about electric power plants running on fossil fuels

 

This open-to-the-public's-view runaway, and mostly illegal and unconstitutional, raging and rapidly growing idiocy should be reason for most politicians in California, and every other state, county, parish, city, and township and other government , including HOAs and neighborhood watches, and such across the nation to be held accountable and subject to recall, impeachment ,and plain old-fashioned firing and possibly facing legal action against them and incarceration for the ones found guilty......and most should be regardless of party affiliations.  (I believe this to be the longest sentence I ever wrote.)

 

God bless America and sic semper tyranus.  :FlagAm:

But NO ONE gets convicted and almost anything anymore and this must surely be cruel and unusual punishment. (As opposed to everyday pleasant and loving  punishment.)

God, that would take forever! At least around here. Takes em a week now to do a few miles with dually tractors and 4 gang mowers. We probably can't use prisoners anymore. They even stopped making license plates here! You know poor Timmy :angry:

The law actually passed a few years ago, but implementation was keyed on products being available or a date, not sure which one kicked in.  For small lots, electric can do the job, just costs more.  I looked at the stihl mower and was able to test one before buying.  It would have cost $1k vs a nice Honda mower for $450.  Can buy a lot of gas for $500.  
 

at some point we will be forced to move over to electric as mfg are already discontinuing gas products.  Makita/dolmar stopped production of gas saws 2 years ago.  Dolmar invented the chainsaw and now they no longer make gas saws.

How is California coming along with their initiatives to build several coal fired electric plants needed to support all this earth saving electric hornswaggling?

I’ve used an electric mower for decades.  I have vivid memories of the PITA that was our gas mower in my youth.  I don’t give a hoot about green BS but I like how it runs ever time I push the button… kinda like a Harley with an electric foot vs one you have to kick 50 times before it starts.  I simply cannot be arsed with a gas mower.

I gave up mowing 7 acres in the country and left all the outdoor tools and john deere belly mower for the buyer.

Bought a luxury condo on the Lake of the Ozarks, so Ma and I can boat, fish and shoot more SASS.

BUT, now the HOA said we have to remove our gas BBQ grill and replace with electric outdoor grill.

Multiple insurance companies will not insure multi dwellings after Oct 2023.

Also, the entire county is following this craze.

My son ran into that in Las Vegas and finally managed to get elected to the HOA control group.  He lasted three years but when he left there was only one power hungry puke left.  Now they are all gone and the places looks better is run better, and no one has had to give in to someone else's BS edicts.

 

I'm really proud of him.

Yep, that's why I live in the sticks, mow my own grass, plow my own driveway and shoot my guns whenever I dang well please.

Now, get off my lawn!

I'm no tree hugger but I have converted over to a battery powered weedeater and blower.  Those EGO 56V tools last a lot longer than I do, they have plenty of power and no pull cords.  I can easily take care of the yard on one charge.  Then I balance the books by cutting the grass with my 26 hp. zero turn mower and fire up my charcoal grill.  

 

I can see a new small engine smuggling industry starting up in California on January 1, 2024.
