Reduced Fuel Costs
Propane is consistently less expensive at the pump, helping you submit more competitive bids with potential customers.
Lower Labor Expenses
On-site refueling allows your crew to spend more time working and less time at the gas station. On the job, employees are more productive and satisfied using clean equipment.
Propane equipment has a secure, closed-loop fuel system. This saves money by virtually eliminating costly, harmful spills, and dramatically reducing fuel theft.
More Green-Minded Customers
Promoting your choice to use cleaner fuel can help attract new business from people who care about sustainability.
There are over 150 propane mower models — including walk-behind, stand-on, and zero-turn-radius models — available from the brands you know. Whichever is right for you, you’ll be saving more on fuel and labor expenses, while reducing emissions. You may also convert existing equipment using EPA- and CARB-certified conversion kits.
To boost your savings even more, team up your propane mowers with propane autogas vehicles. They’re proven to deliver the power a contractor needs to haul equipment. They also offer the lowest total cost-of-ownership of any vehicle fuel out there, giving you a new route to better savings. These vehicles also operate cleaner than those powered by conventional fuels, keeping you on track with sustainability goals.
Propane autogas is proven fuel for the powerful performance your business needs. And unlike diesel, propane autogas fleet vehicles operate cleaner without the added cost of filters and fluids. On top of cleaner operation, propane autogas offers the lowest total-cost-of-ownership available, increasing your savings even more.
Power better savings while powering your equipment. Propane portable generators are trusted for recharging electric handheld equipment like trimmers, blowers, and chainsaws — with wattage ranging from 2,000 to 12,300. Propane is the perfect fuel for generators: It costs less, doesn’t degrade over time, and is always available in a power outage.
Propane offers flexibility for contractors. For fleets with 5-10 mowers, your propane supplier will get you started with a cylinder exchange program. Larger fleets can take advantage of on-site dispensing, where trained employees refill their own cylinders at the start of each work day.

Propane mower performance is similar to that of conventional fuels. You don’t lose any horsepower, yet they’re much quieter, and you can refuel in about 30 seconds. Most notably, though, the fuel doesn’t smell like gasoline or diesel. Craig Seeds, Forestry Administrator, City of Columbus, OH
