This is in "Rapid City SD"



This was an EPA Raid on a mower shop in CA
As far As I know, These were put into a big pile and burned in a "Controlled" way... Protecting the environment eh? The EPA makes me Sick


This is 20 Minutes from Me, No Idea why it says its in BC Canada...
I really should go and see if I can have some of them, As they've been sitting for years..

This makes some sense of a email I got this week. A guy wanted a Craftsman lawm mower I am selling on Ebay. He only wanted the engine and wheels? He is from Cali! He wanted me to send it to him!? I told him,sorry no. No shipping on the auction. California destroys the older machines?? That is real stupid!! :(

No, They destroy all Gas Powered machines...

You are only allowed to have a Electric mower....

You will have your mower taken away and destroyed... no matter how new

The fact they're repossessing mowers, no matter how new.... They are even taking the new EPA 4 Machines....
Where are you getting your information from? I'm familiar with the EPA 4 in reference to a minimum gasoline purchase you must make to protect the consumer from improper ethanol mixtures resulting from residual ethanol mixtures retained in the hose, but what is an EPA 4 Machine?

:sorry: All, It appears I Have no Idea what I'm Talking about, I just called the friend on the phone who told me all about the lawn-mowers being taken and destroyed and he laughed in my face and told me he was taking me up the garden path when he told me that... No joke.


Boy he sure thought It was funny that I posted the yarn online as fact...


I could punch him right now :mad:

Well thanks for admitting that, Capstan. Even better, you admitted the truth and mistake. We do appreciate that and it was the right thing to do.

X2! I really thought that was hogwash, even googled it some. I have been victim of pranks by my "buddies"! Even got me called a UFO nut on facebook due to a picture I took one guy tricked me into believing it was a school project on a teather. It was just a reflection! :(
