Landscapers

For professional landscapers there are huge benefits to converting both their lawn mower fleet and truck fleet to run on propane-fueled-autogas.  For a limited time, the Propane Education and Research Council will give you $1,000 per qualifying new propane mower purchase, or $500 per qualifying mower conversion in exchange for feedback and performance data from one mowing season.  Incentives are limited, so ask for details.

  1. Lower costs.
    • Propane can reduce operating costs compared with gasoline or diesel.  Landscape contractors who have switched to propane report immediate cost savings.
      • In this case study you can learn how a U.S Lawns franchise was able to cut fuel costs by 50% while reducing their carbon footprint by converting to propane-fueled mowers.
      • Propane-powered mowers aren’t only for large landscape companies.  See how a small landscape contractor saved approximately $2.50 per hour mowing, allowing them to remain competitive and outbid competitors just by converting to propane here.
  2. Proven performance.
    • Top landscape contractors have trusted propane to stand up to the toughest jobs daily.  Twelve of the top mower brands offer propane-fueled options.
  3. Fewer emissions.
    • Propane reduces harmful carbon emissions compared with gasoline or diesel.  In many places, propane mowers can be used on ozone action days when other mowers can’t, and low-carbon propane often gives contractors an edge when they bid on jobs.
      • Learn how a Florida lawn care company built a competitive advantage of cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by switching to propane-fueled mowers in this case study.
  4. Easy on-site refueling and less downtime.
    • Propane offers proven refueling options delivered right to your door.  No more trips to the gas station means more time for your crews to do the jobs that pay.
  5. Reduced fuel spills and pilferage.
    • With its closed fuel system, propane saves money and protects the environment by virtually eliminating costly, harmful spills and by dramatically reducing fuel theft.
  6. Abundant supply produced in the U.S.
    • Propane is made in America, and we have plenty of it.  In fact, the United States exports enough propane annually to run the nation’s entire fleet of commercial zero-turn-radius mowers.
