Saw this floating around and wanting to post it. Is it real? If it is, how do you feel?

Seems like NY is going straight into the hole with all the new rules and regs that Ma undoubtly will follow suit in no time.

 

I hope that is just talk.

I'm sure it would have made headlines if it were not a hoax.

 

I did find out that Pa state inspection stickers are going from $2.00 up to $5.00.Life comes at you fast.

Wouldn't surprise me. A lot of lower income families would have high grass because they can't afford new lawn equipment

If its true it might be just for the comercial landscapers.  I can't really see them being able to enforce it for every lawn mower in the state without ending up with a lot of lawsuits.  I know I wouldn't do it with the age of most of the mowers I have.

I don't see how they could do that.  Not everybody that cuts their grass with a GT has a trailer to haul it around.  Of course, what do they care?  Rent one or pay someone to haul it in.  Seems goofy to me.

Have not heard about this yet, but being NYS dosent suprise me at all.

I've been seriously thinking on mailing it in and getting out of this dismal state in a few years to someplace that is more business friendly!

Do you know what is the saddest about this? That there is even a remote possibility that this is serious.

Good thing I don't live in NY, I can't wear steel toed shoes (#6)!  Just enough "hammer toe" that the steel cup wears the skin off the tops of my toes.  ~~  Lowell

Looks like a hoax to me. Tires must have .75" of tread??? What tire has 3/4 of an inch of tread depth, especially turf tires. Also .3" of play in a wheel bearing, what kind of spec is that!!

This wouldn't surprise me at all. More regulations to control our lives. I like the tire specs in #3. This is vital for staying on coarse while mowing around flowers. Lol
