Possible and maybe not that surprising.

Their number is on the bottom of that page; could always give them a call and ask.

I read somewhere that they werent interested in having their saws listed with the EPA.  I suppose it involved alot of testing fees?  Something about emission requirements and their market share. 

Personally I dont like it.  The EPA and their heavy handed bs has put more than one maker out of business.  How much pollution can a 50cc saw make?  Just look at Lawnboy theyre NLA because they couldnt pass the EPA tests.

I thought Solo said three years ago that they were dropping out of the North American chainsaw market?

Everything I've seen about that was their bigger saws. They dropped those a few years ago, all the sub 70cc stuff was available.

Ok, that could very well be what it was.

Don't even get me started about those 'coal powered' electric cars!

If it isn't one thing, it's another....and no one seems to 'step up' to cure the illness.....
