The Propane Advantage

More and more landscape contractors, communities and schools are looking at propane-powered equipment when considering their landscaping needs.  Here’s why:

  • Fuel Savings – With the price of gasoline and diesel trending up in recent years, it’s become more important for landscape contractors to find affordable alternative fuels. Propane is a great value compared to gas and diesel and, because a local propane provider can offer fuel contracts, customers can secure a fixed-rate price.
  • Reduced Equipment Maintenance – Because propane mowers burn cleaner, there are no carbon deposits or particulate matter to contaminate the engine. This means less maintenance (including fewer oil changes), a longer engine life and improved productivity compared to gas and diesel mowers.
  • Eco-Friendly – Propane is a clean-burning alternative to gas and diesel. The mowers release up to 50% less greenhouse emissions and up to 80% less carbon monoxide than their gas and diesel counterparts.
  • Loss Prevention – Propane cylinders have a closed-fuel system. You don’t have to worry about leaks or spilling because of human error. In addition, propane can’t be siphoned, which prevents theft.
  • Investment Savings – The Propane Education Research Council (PERC) gives incentives to landscape contractors: $1,000 per qualifying new propane mower purchase or $500 per qualifying mower conversion. In addition, Missouri’s propane association (MO-PERC) offers 15% of the purchase price of a new propane mower or $750 for conversion costs.
