Our February Meeting will focus on CARB/PERP Update with Gabe Jarvis from RDO Vermeer.
Membership Chair, Gabe Jarvis, will share the latest information on when CARB/PERP will be phasing out the different tier engines and what that means for tree care companies.
Gabe Jarvis is the CORE Product Account Manager for RDO Vermeer. He has been in the Landscaping, Tree Service and Construction Industry his whole working life. So he knows about equipment needs, client service and changes. He has spent his last 18 years representing the Vermeer product line. He is also our membership chair and has been a long time supporter of PTCA monthly meetings and our Summer Seminar and Field day.
His topic will be covering engine phase out dates for various Portable Equipment. CARB/PERP will be phasing out the different tier engines which in turn means you will no longer be able to run a chipper legally in the state. I will have a few links in the presentation for customers to turn to for answers. Then he will share a quick slide show on what Vermeer has in our line up to offer the tree care customer these days.
The rules and regulations are always changing and if you know what to expect you can be prepared.
If you must phase out a chipper you should have a replacement plan that includes the timeline of its manufacture as well as its budget impact. He will get us up to speed on what to expect to minimize the shock and surprise factor. We may not all like surprises when we get a notice.
