Trade-in Your Gas Guzzler for an Electric Mower in Southern California

Trade-in Your Gas Guzzler for an Electric Mower in Southern California

Almost missed this bit of news mentioned in last month's Westways magazine: the South Coast Air Quality Management District is sponsoring a program called "Mow Down Air Pollution", offering LA, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino county residents an opportunity to trade in their gasoline burning lawn mowers for a non-polluting battery powered model at a deep discount. How much are we talking? How about a Neuton CS 5.3 for $100? That's the very same electric mower Grace tested awhile ago at a very nice price; they're also offering the more powerful Neuton CE 6.3 and the Black & Decker CMM1200 both for $160 with your trade-in as an incentive to steer Southern Cali residents away from polluting our neighborhoods with traditional mowers...

To get your hands on a deeply discounted new fangled electric lawn mower that will be sure to please your neighbors (like hybrid cars, these run much quieter than gas powered mowers and don't emit smelly gasoline fumes), call 888.425.6247 or preregister at aqmd.gov to arrange for your trade-in at specific locations and dates.
