Did you know professional landscaping companies can save as much as $1,000 on a new propane-fueled mower under the Propane Mower End-User Incentive Program? This program, launched recently by the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), envisions as many as 600 new propane-fueled commercial mowers into service nationwide through the program.
Eligible professional mowing companies can get up to $1,000 for buying a qualifying propane-fueled commercial mower with a cutting deck of 60 inches to 72 inches. The company must share details with PERC about its use and operation of the mower for one year.
Propane-fueled mowers cost less to operate and produce fewer harmful emissions than gasoline-fueled mowers. Propane mowers can reduce carbon monoxide emissions by more than 80 percent and greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 50 percent compared with gasoline mowers. Many major manufacturers offer propane-fueled mowers that qualify, including Bob-Cat, Cub Cadet, Dixie Chopper, Exmark, Gravely, Husqvarna, Kubota, Scag Power Equipment, Zipper, and Briggs & Stratton and its Ferris and Snapper Pro lines.
The incentive program joins PERC’s Mower Dealer Demonstration program which will place 300 propane mowers with equipment dealers nationwide to demonstrate the performance, reliability, and easy refueling of propane mowers.
