Emission Fun Facts
Air Pollution is a contamination of the physical and chemical properties of the air (i.e. the type of exhaust released from gasoline-powered lawnmowers)
With no need for gas or oil, our electric commercial-grade mowers, backpack blowers, string trimmers, chainsaws, and hedge trimmers don’t emit the harmful greenhouse gases that produce up to 5% of the nation’s air pollution. Our equipment releases ZERO emissions, leaving the air that you breathe clean and healthy.*
*Just one 24 horsepower commercial, zero-turn lawn mower equals the emission output of 88 cars traveling at 55 miles per hour!
And the elimination of gas and oil also eliminates spillage of these fossil-fuels, preventing contamination of our soil and groundwater. Remarkably, over 17 million gallons of gas are spilled each year while refueling lawn and garden equipment according to the Environmental Protection Agency. With our equipment, there is no spillage – EVER!
*Per year. This equipment will also emit 54lbs of other pollutants into the air each year.
**Gas string trimmer operating for one hour equals emissions from a full-size pick-up truck traveling 3K miles.
According to an APA study, one 3 hp lawn mower emits the same air pollution as 11 cars driving at 55 mph. Each additional HP is calculated with a linear use equation.
**Each 1 hp from a lawn mower = 3.67 cars at 55 mph emissions**
Outdoor (off-road) power equipment such as lawnmowers, leaf blowers, grass trimmers, farm tractors, ATVs, and so on, are all part of a sparsely regulated group of fossil fuel-powered products. These products have a large impact on our environment. Since they are not "on-road" vehicles, the EPA has put very little effort into regulating emissions on these products.
Due to this limited regulation, outdoor power vehicles have become the worst polluters and the least efficient products on the market today. Emissions are more than 30 times worse than on-road gas vehicles and efficiency is way down near 20%. Gas-powered outdoor equipment is so polluting that the EPA has concluded that just one 2-cycle string trimmer can produce as many emissions in one hour as one full size pick up truck traveling over 3,000 miles!
Air pollution causes a disruption to the normal quality of the environment and is detrimental to our quality of life. By investing in commercial-grade electric lawn equipment, it is the goal of LAWNOMI to leave our customers with a more peaceful and healthy environment.
