The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Air Resources Board (CARB), and Ryobi Technologies, Inc. are pleased
to explain the Emission Control System Warranty on your non-road or small off-road engine. In California, new small off-road engines
must be designed, built and equipped to meet the state’s stringent anti-smog standards. In other states, new 2000 and later model
year non-road engines must be designed, built, and equipped, at the time of sale, to meet the U.S. EPA regulations for small non-road
engines. The non-road engine must be free from defects in materials and workmanship which cause it to fail to conform with U.S. EPA
standards for the first two years of engine use from the date of sale to the ultimate purchaser. Ryobi Technologies, Inc. must warrant
the emission control system on your non-road or small off-road engine for the period of time listed above provided there has been no
abuse, neglect, or improper maintenance of your non-road or small off-road engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor or fuel injection system, the ignition system, and the catalytic
converter. Also included may be hoses, belts and connectors, and other emission related assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, Ryobi Technologies, Inc. will repair your non-road or small off-road engine at no cost to you,
including diagnosis (if the diagnostic work is performed at an authorized dealer), parts, and labor.
MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY COVERAGE:
The 1995 and later small off-road engines are warranted for two years in California. In other states, 1997 and later model year non-
road engines are also warranted for two years. If any emission-related part on your engine is defective, the part will be repaired or
replaced by Ryobi Technologies, Inc. free of charge.
OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES
(a) As the non-road or small off-road engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of required maintenance listed in your
operator’s manual. Ryobi Technologies, Inc. recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your non-road or
small off-road engine, but Ryobi Technologies, Inc., cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure
the performance of all scheduled maintenance. Any replacement part or service that is equivalent in performance and durability
may be used in non-warranty maintenance or repairs, and shall not reduce the warranty obligations of the engine manufacturer.
(b) As the non-road or small off-road engine owner, you should be aware, however, that Ryobi Technologies, Inc., may deny you
warranty coverage if your non-road or small off-road engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, or

Ryobi Technologies, Inc. warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that your non-road or small off-road
engine will be designed, built, and equipped, at the time of sale, to meet all applicable regulations. Ryobi Technologies, Inc. also war-
rants to the initial purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that your non-road or small off-road engine is free from defects in mate-
rials and workmanship which cause the engine to fail to conform with applicable regulations for a period of two years. The 1995 and
later small off road engines are warranted for two years in California. In all other states for 1997 and later model years, EPA requires
manufacturers to warrant non-road engines for two years. These warranty periods will begin on the date the non-road or small off-
road engine is purchased by the initial purchaser. If any emission-related part on your engine is defective, the part will be replaced by
Ryobi Technologies, Inc. at no cost to the owner.
Ryobi Technologies, Inc. shall remedy warranty defects at any authorized Ryobi Technologies, Inc. engine dealer or warranty sta-
tion. Any authorized work done at an authorized dealer or warranty station shall be free of charge to the owner if such work deter-
mines that a warranted part is defective. Any manufacturer-approved or equivalent replacement part may be used for any warranty
maintenance or repairs on emission-related parts, and must be provided free of charge to the owner if the part is still under warranty.
Ryobi Technologies, Inc. is liable for damages to other engine components caused by the failure of a warranted part still under warranty.
