Propane Mowers and their Benefits for Landscaping Contractors
Propane is a versatile and efficient energy source that delivers many benefits to landscapers and commercial mowing businesses. Propane is consistently less expensive than gasoline at the pumps, so landscaping contractors can lower one of their largest expenses by incorporating propane mowers into their fleet.
Landscaping businesses can also reduce labor expenses with propane’s convenient, on-site refueling to keep their crews in the field longer to maximize profitability. Propane mowers also eliminate the risk of fuel leaks or spills and naturally prevent fuel from walking off from job sites. All of these savings allow commercial landscaping businesses to provide more competitive bids and win more jobs as a result.
Propane is a clean-burning alternative fuel that leaves a reduced carbon footprint compared to traditional fuel sources. The automotive-style, closed-loop EFI system available in Kohler EFI models optimizes air/fuel settings to maximize performance and efficiency while minimizing emissions.
There are over 150 propane mower models available, including walk-behind, stand-on, and zero-turn-radius models from industry-leading brands. What are you waiting for? Now is the perfect time to start enjoying the benefits of propane-powered mowers.

Lawn Equipment Assistance Fund
Commercial lawn care and maintenance companies can capitalize on MOPERC’s state incentive to offset the cost associated with purchasing a new propane-powered mower or converting a gas-powered mower to propane.
Through the LEAF program, businesses can receive a $1,000 incentive for purchasing a new mower powered exclusively by propane. Businesses can also receive a $500 incentive for the conversion of an existing gasoline-powered mower to propane with an approved conversion kit.
For a limited time, lawn care professionals and landscape contractors can also take advantage of an equal federal incentive from the national Propane Education and Research Council, to double-down on the savings. With an additional $1,000 incentive for purchasing a new propane mower or $500 incentive for converting an existing gasoline mower to propane, you can save up to $2,000 per new propane-powered mower when you put the state and national incentives together!
