Look For Relevant Emissions Durability Period and
Air index information On Your Engine Emissions Label
Engines that are certified to meet the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Tier 2 Emission Standards must
display information regarding the Emissions Durability Period and the Air Index. Sears Brands Management
Corporation makes this information available to the consumer on our emission labels.
The Emissions Durability Period describes the number of hours of actual running time for which the engine is
certified to be emissions compliant, assuming proper maintenance in accordance with the Operating & Maintenance Instructions. The following categories are used:
Moderate:
Engine is certified
to be emission compliant
for 125 hours of actual engine running time.
Intermediate:
Engine is certified
to be emission compliant
for 250 hours of actual engine running time.
Extended:
Engine is certified
to be emission compliant
for 500 hours of actual engine running time.
For example, a typical walk-behind lawn mower is used 20 to 25 hours per year. Therefore, the Emissions
Durability Period of an engine with an intermediate rating would equate to 10 to 12 years.
The Air index is a calculated number describing the relative level of emissions for a specific engine family. The
lower the Air Index, the cleaner the engine. This information is displayed in graphical form on the emissions label.

After July 1, 2000 certain Sears Brands Management Corporation engines will be certified to meet the United

Emissions Compliance Period referred to on the Emissions Compliance label indicates the number of operating
hours for which the engine has been shown to meet Federal emission requirements.
