$1,000 incentive to take part in propane mower research

Industry News, Supplier News

Incentive is good for up to 10 eligible mowers bought from any mower dealer in the nation.

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is offering $1,000 to qualified buyers of a new propane-fueled mower who agree to share information about the mower’s performance.
 
Customers who are accepted into the PERC Propane Mower Incentive Program can get the incentive for up to 10 eligible mowers bought from any mower dealer in the nation. The new propane commercial mower must be equipped with a 60- to 72-inch cutting deck.

“This is a research initiative that will reward lawn and landscape customers for choosing a lower-emissions mower and help PERC meet its research goals,” PERC Director of Business Development and Marketing Mark Leitman says.
 
Propane-fueled mowers cost less to operate than gasoline-fueled mowers owing to greater usage during ozone action days, convenient on-site fuel delivery, and the virtual elimination of fuel spillage and loss. Propane mowers reduce greenhouse gas emissions by nearly half compared with gasoline mowers and meet or exceed Environmental Protection Agency emissions requirements. Propane is made here in the United States, and using it instead of imported fuel can help increase the nation’s energy security.

The $1,000-per-mower incentive can be combined with any manufacturer rebates and state propane gas association rebates for which the customer is eligible.
 
Major manufacturers offering propane-fueled mowers include Ariens/Gravely, Bobcat, Briggs and Stratton (including Snapper Pro and Ferris brands), Cub Cadet, Dixie Chopper, Exmark, Husqvarna, Kubota, Scag, Toro, and Zipper.
