PERC to display six mowers

GIE+EXPO Show Coverage, Supplier News

The propane-fueled mowers will be on display at GIE+EXPO at PERC's booth.

WASHINGTON – The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) will showcase its one-fuel solution for both dealers and landscape contractors in Booth #7094 at GIE+EXPO Oct. 23-25, 2013. This year’s GIE+EXPO marks a turning point, as more landscapers than ever have turned to propane-fueled equipment to cut costs and reduce emissions, according to Jeremy Wishart, Senior Programs Manager at PERC.

“Fluctuating gasoline and diesel prices and issues with ethanol blends are pushing contractors to learn more about propane,” Wishart says. “With an ever-increasing array of proven equipment to choose from, transitioning to an all-propane fleet has never made more sense. Propane is a versatile solution that helps contractors not only mow green, but save green.”

Landscape contractors and dealers will get a firsthand look at a variety of propane-fueled equipment options at PERC’s GIE booth. Six propane-fueled mowers will be on display, including models by Exmark, Gravely, Hustler, Kubota, Toro, and Ventrac. Generac’s LP3250 and LP5500 propane-fueled portable generators will be on display providing on-site power for handheld equipment by Oregon including a string and hedge trimmer, chainsaw and pole saw. A Ford F-550 pickup truck with a Roush CleanTech liquid propane autogas fuel system will round out the equipment in the booth.

PERC representatives and industry experts will be on-hand to answer questions and share propane success stories on all three days of the show.
 
Additional in-booth activities will include the Path to Propane exhibit and Wall of Propane Fame. The Path to Propane exhibit will demonstrate how propane offers an easy, affordable, clean, and American-made solution. An interactive quiz game will put attendees’ knowledge to the test for a chance to win prizes, including a propane-fueled portable generator for contractors and a Demo Day Event hosted by PERC for dealers. The Wall of Propane Fame will feature testimonials from successful dealers and contractors.
