Propane Makes Landscaping Business More Profitable
When you’re a professional landscaper, you know you’re in a highly competitive business. Everyone exerts enormous efforts ways to stand out from the crowd while still keeping a close eye on the bottom line.
That’s why many smart business owners have been willing to make an investment in converting their equipment to operate on propane autogas.
Versatile enough to use for a wide range of landscaping equipment – including your truck fleet – propane autogas is an especially great choice for commercial lawnmowers and other landscape maintenance applications.
Transform your business
Propane truly has the power to transform your business. Propane mowers can significantly reduce your fuel and maintenance costs, allowing you to pass on those savings to customers and in so doing so, give you a competitive edge.
Whether it’s a simple mower for small yards or large powerful vehicles to maintain the grounds of large residential and commercial properties, propane autogas landscaping equipment offers a whole host of benefits. For starters, changing the propane tank on an autogas-driven mower is easy. It’s really no different than swapping out a propane tank for a grill or a generator.
After that, you can save money and be green with every lawn you mow.
That’s because autogas for lawn mowers typically costs less per gallon than gasoline. Imagine that kind of savings for every gallon of fuel used in every piece of equipment by every crew you send out for work.
But the savings don’t stop there: Because propane runs cleaner, you’ll spend less on maintenance and extend the life of your equipment.
With propane, there’s no more wasting time with trips to the gas station. Convenient refueling options and dispensing service ensure that your crew spends more time doing jobs that pay.
More propane autogas benefits
- Cost-effective. With lower costs and no fuel tax, you can reduce fuel costs by about 10 % with propane, and probably much more.
- Easy to store and refuel. Many propane companies now offer bulk on-site storage tanks or mobile on-site refueling options to suit your needs and your budget; both reduce your cost for fuel and labor while increasing safety.
- Clean-burning. Propane has a higher octane rating than gasoline, so you’ll spend less money on oil changes and ongoing maintenance (not to mention that your equipment will spend more time operating and less time in the repair shop)
- Friendly to the environment. Propane emits much less carbon than other fuels. Promoting your choice to use this cleaner fuel can help attract new business from people who care about sustainability. Propane mowers improve both sides of the balance sheet, helping bring in new business and saving you more during the actual operation.
- Harder to steal and spill. With its closed fuel system, propane virtually eliminates the chance of spills and dramatically reduces fuel theft.
- American made. More than 90% of propane is made in the U.S.
More than 150 propane mower models available
These models include walk-behind, stand-on, and zero-turn-radius models. Whichever is right for your business, 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.
Propane has convenient refueling options for small, medium, and large mower fleets. Typically small to medium-sized fleets set up a cylinder exchange where cylinders are replaced by their propane supplier on a regular basis.
Larger operations often work with their propane supplier to install on-site dispensing stations at their business. Contact your local propane supplier to discuss which option is best for you.
