It’s time to get tough on gas!

2024 is here…along with zero emission requirements.

The California Air Resource Board (CARB) zero emissions ban began this year, and it impacts off-road spark-ignition engines that produce 25 horsepower or less, including industrial and commercial equipment, such as pressure washers, generators and more.

So what’s a company to do?

The good news?

In response to the mandates, equipment manufacturers already have started rolling out new electric and battery powered machines.

A little bit of history. 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 would be required to meet more stringent standards in 2024 and meet zero-emission standards starting in 2028.

It’s time to get tough on gas! Most companies have a pressure washer they use for cleaning and sanitizing purposes of just about everything, and a majority of them are gas-powered. Many of our clients have reached out to ask, ‘What alternatives are in the market’? ‘What should I be looking for?’ We did the homework and came up with some answers.

Here’s what to look for:
