environmental benefits

For those customers who are interested in the more eco-friendly aspect of a propane mower, there are many environmental benefits of switching to propane-fueled mowers.

  • Cleaner-Burning than gasoline. Propane-fueled equipment runs cleaner than gasoline or diesel, releasing fewer pollutant emissions and greenhouse gases.
  • Lower Greenhouse Gas Emissions. Propane-fueled mowers reduce greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 50 percent.
  • Reduce Air Pollution and Emissions that are Harmful to Human Health. Propane mowers reduce carbon monoxide emissions by more than 80 percent and emit significantly fewer ground-level ozone precursors and particulate matter than gasoline-powered mowers. These emissions cause ground-level air pollution, commonly referred to as smog. They also worsen health conditions like asthma.
  • Eliminate Ground and Water Pollution for Spilled Gasoline. The pressurized storage of propane reduces any fuel spillage. The EPA estimates that more than 17 million gallons of gasoline are spilled during the refueling of lawn equipment each year. Gasoline typically contains more than 150 chemicals, including small amounts of benzene, toluene, xylene and sometimes, lead, that are released into the environment.
