Looking forward to seeing you at a premier propane industry event, the NPGA Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo in Atlanta, where the Propane Education & Research Council will be showcasing mowers, propane-autogas vehicles and more great technology. Please stop by booth 309 at the show.
Weather reports say Atlanta will be in the 70s and rainy. Oh well, should be good grass growing weather. And a new study finds that landscape contractors should consider using commercial mowers fueled with propane.
In the study from PERC, landscape contractors report that propane fuel for their mowers cost them 39 percent less than gasoline, and about 60 percent less than diesel. Nine out of 10 of the firms said they would purchase a propane mower in the future, and 10 out of 10 would recommend a propane mower to a colleague.
About that study. It is preliminary and offers a limited sample, but these landscape firms chose a propane mower because of the fuel’s low cost, low maintenance, and its environmentally friendly aspect. Don’t forget, about 90 percent of U.S. propane supplies are produced right here in the U.S.
All these factoids and a lot more are available in PERC’s GallonGrowers Professional Landscape Toolkit. This free downloadable guide includes an overview of the market and its potential for propane sales, along with extensive collateral such as ads, case studies, and handouts that a marketer can use with prospects. The toolkit also offers tips on getting in the door with a client. Visit the Propane MaRC to download the Landscape Contractor Toolkit.
