3 Reasons You Should Not Be Hesitant To Convert Your Mower to Run on Propane
Thinking of converting your commercial lawn mower to propane? It can seem like an overwhelming process, but Hendrix can help you! We will walk you through the process of how and where to get fuel, how to install the conversion kit and service your mower, and even how to receive any incentives or rebates that are available!
During a recent podcast, Rural Lifestyle Dealer podcast series, the speaker touched on the 3 main reasons why companies are hesitant to switch from their current fuel to propane.
The #1 reason was that they were unsure of where to get the propane. Here at Hendrix, we can make that process easy for you by finding a propane dealer in your area. Depending on the number of mowers you want to convert, we can help set up either a cylinder exchange program, where the propane company will deliver cylinders to your site, or consult you on whether installing a propane tank at your facility would make more sense.
The #2 reason for hesitation of converting mowers was the concern about a decrease in performance using propane. Jeremy Wishart, deputy director for business development at PERC (Propane Education & Research Council) explains since 2012, when PERC started collecting data from the incentive program, suggests all the field data collected from the applicants and end users that when using propane their run times and horsepower are on par or in some cases even better than when using gasoline.
The #3 reason was that companies were concerned about future service and maintenance needed for the propane mower. While there is a slight learning curve when it comes to working on a propane mower, if you can service a gas mower, you can service a propane mower. We have extensive experience when it comes to servicing these mowers, and can assist with any questions.
