Interesting to see the comments surrounding small engine exhaust have centered around the leaf blower. Must be a seasonal thing. The more serious attention should be placed on gas mowers, a significantly greater evil than the leaf blower, again due to seasonal influences. The gas mower may have emissions comparable to a leaf blower, but its impact is greater on a neighbourhood during the lingering heat of an August day. At least the wind and rain patterns of a November day assist in the dissipation of particulate matter. It really should be illegal to operate a gas mower (or any gas powered small engine for that matter) when a smog day has been declared.
