I think that might only apply to NYC. Everything I saw was requirements of the City and it would have to be registered with the Fire Commissioner. I never knew that but good information. Thanks for the reply.

Ask your dealers about propane set up they do not want to sell them because you will not have engine problems and they last some much longer than gas machines ex look at forklifts run forever
This really makes me want to switch over
I have a few months to decide as I'm getting all new equipment this year

Not surprising, NY loves to create new laws! Too bad though, I can see it for NYC but most of the state is rural and like you said, targeting the guy trying to work is another level of wrong..

That was actually part of the reason I went with the propane, the life of the engine and wear on the internals is much better than gas. Longevity and reliability are drastically better. The dealer I purchased it from is one of the larger dealers in the Tri-State area and this was the only one he has sold to date.

Bump. Great looking machine. Just bought a Cheetah, otherwise...... Bad time of year to unload a mower, may have more luck closer to spring. Good luck
