    Just wondering with the new Emisions comming out in 05 for hand held engines 50cc or less. Is this going to effect our current equipment or only equipment that will be sold after the First of Jan. 05. Already planning on replacing one of my Echo trimmers next spring, I really do not want to have to replace the rest of my hand held equipment. Have not read the regulation yet just seen that they are making the standard tougher.

    I would think it would only apply to equipment manufactured after the affective date of the regulation. I'm no lawyer, just my two cents worth.

    I was thinking the samething but you know how the EPA can be. With most things in the past they grandfather them in, but the way some enviromentalist are they could go after all.

    It only applies to new equipment.
