What you need to know – and what you can do.

We all know emissions matter. But did you know that California has over 16.7 million Small Off-Road Engines?  These include leaf blowers, lawn mowers and pressure washers, to name a few. With the goal of further reducing emissions, the California Air Resource Board (CARB) recently signed legislation aims to ban the sale of all non-compliant SOREs by 2028, with zero emission requirements starting in 2024.

This is coming up fast! Are you ready?

Which engines are subject to the regulations?

The small off-road engine (SORE) category consists of off-road spark-ignition engines that produce 25 horsepower or less, including lawn & garden, industrial, commercial utility equipment, logging, airport ground support, golf carts, and specialty vehicles.

CARB approved a measure that requires most newly-manufactured small off-road engines such as those found in leaf blowers, lawn mowers pressure washers and other equipment be zero emission starting in 2024. Portable generators, including those in recreational vehicles, would be required to meet more stringent standards in 2024 and meet zero-emission standards starting in 2028.
