According to The Propane Education Research Council, “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.”
Barnes Inc. is a company that supports using low emission mowers. The company’s propane mower fleet has grown from two to 75, and it’s experiencing the advantages of expanding its use of propane. Propane commercial mowers are safe and easy to refuel—they only require the switch-out of a propane cylinder. Outdoor power equipment powered by propane also helps keep the contractor’s biggest expense—fuel—in check with steady, reliable fuel costs compared with diesel. Barnes uses propane for its mowers as well as propane autogas for some of its fleet vehicles.
