Twelve month industry shipments of key consumer lawn and garden products increased overall in the 2002 model year, even though some small-volume categories showed declines according to estimates by the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI).

The net total for all product categories showed a 3-percent increase for model year 2002 over 2001 with total shipments at 7,734,700 units. The high volume activity of front engine lawn tractors resulted in a 4-percent increase in all riding categories. This completely offset decreases recorded by rear engine riders and riding garden tractors. Walk-behind mowers increased 4 percent to 5,824,000 units but walk-behind tillers showed a decrease of 3 percent to 311,300 units. The model year for these products was Sept. 1, 2001 through Aug. 31, 2002 and the industry estimates represent shipments destined to U.S. markets only.

According to OPEI estimates, 9,850,603 gasoline powered handheld products were shipped in Model Year 2002. This total breaks down as follows:

Chain Saws 2,427,166
Hand Held Blowers 1,568,535
Backpack Blowers 300,785
Trimmer/Brushcutters 5,097,294
Hedge Trimmers 342,099
Cut Off Saws 114,724

Handheld products have been an integral part of OPEI’s comprehensive shipments survey since 1997. This is the first year that OPEI has augmented its data collection program with estimates for manufacturers that do not submit data, resulting in a true measure of the size of the market for handheld power products.
