Man mowing a lawn with a commercial mower

As we head into the dog days of summer let’s take a look at why you should consider a propane powered lawn mower.

Propane cost about a 1/3 less than gas.

Plus there are all sorts of money saving grants, rebates, and incentive programs from the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC). That’s savings on top of the savings.

Maintaining and repairing a propane mow takes less time.

Propane is a cooler running fuel. Your engine won’t see the extreme temperatures like a gas powered mower which leads to reduction in operating costs.

Propane engines are also free of carbon build-up so the propane engine will usually last about 25 percent longer than a gasoline powered mower.

Propane is easy to store and easy to handle.

Unlike gasoline, propane is contained in the tank. Refueling a propane powered mower is as easy as disconnecting one tank and connecting another. There’s no chance of spilling and no fuss, no muss.
