Texas landscaper converts mower fleet to autogas

May 7, 2013 By    

EarthWorks Inc., a commercial landscaping company based in Dallas, converted its lawn equipment fleet to propane autogas and expects to save between 30 and 35 percent on maintenance costs annually running on the alternative fuel.

EarthWorks’ fleet includes 20 36-inch mowers from Toro and Scag, and 24 52-inch mowers from Toro, Scag and Exmark. The company uses an estimated 40,000 gallons of propane per year and mows 31.5 million square feet of turf during the growing season.

In addition, EarthWorks saved $15,000 in incentives through a state and national program administered by the Propane Council of Texas that’s available to landscapers switching to autogas.
