Mowers & Vehicles
Propane autogas provides a reliable, low-emission fuel for mowers, vehicles, and construction equipment.
In today's tight economy, builders, remodelers, and other construction pros are always looking for ways to cut costs. One option? Switch from gasoline (or diesel) to propane autogas. Today there are nearly 300,000 propane vehicles on the road in the United States and more than 12 million vehicles worldwide, including trucks, buses, taxis, delivery vehicles — and construction equipment. In many cases, propane vehicles produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline or diesel options.
If your business performs any landscaping or lawn-care work on jobsites or around a community clubhouse, there are plenty of reasons to consider using a commercial mower powered by propane. Propane is generally more cost-effective than gasoline or diesel, so propane mowers can provide cost savings by reducing fuel consumption. Propane is also cleaner, reducing greenhouse gas and smog-forming emissions by 50 percent.
Because propane is a clean alternative fuel, many states offer rebates toward the purchase of propane-powered engines. In addition, PERC's Propane Mower Incentive Program, launched in April 2012, provides a $1,000 incentive for the purchase of a new propane-fueled OEM mower and $500 for each qualifying propane conversion mower (up to a maximum of 10 mowers) in exchange for providing feedback about mower performance and usage during the mower season.
