Propane reduces harmful emissions, keeping the environment on your course cleaner. The closed-loop fuel system also prevents fuel from leaking and damaging your turf.
Crews that used propane equipment on their courses for one year reported saving 30-50 percent on fuel.
When you go propane, you can take advantage of on-site refueling. Your crews simply change out a cylinder on the job and get back to work.
Propane golf course equipment performs noticeably quieter than conventionally fueled equipment, preserving the tranquility of your course.
A variety of propane equipment is available for the course, including reel mowers, fairway mowers, greens mowers, and utility vehicles. Superintendents on small municipal courses and high-end resorts all appreciate propane equipment’s cleaner, quieter operation on the green. In the shop, service technicians appreciate not having to deal with ethanol issues and contaminated fuel. Best of all, your crews can stay more productive with on-site refueling — they just change out a cylinder and get going.
Complete your course fleet with propane autogas light-duty vehicles. Propane autogas delivers the lowest total cost-of-ownership of any fuel, alternative or traditional. These vehicles are also known for operating more quietly, which could help preserve the peacefulness of your course.
Up Your Game with Propane Autogas
When the job calls for extra power, propane autogas medium-duty fleet vehicles deliver. Propane autogas vehicles perform cleaner than diesel and gasoline — and without the addition of filters or fluids that cost you more.
With a portable propane generator, your crew can power up handheld tools like blowers and trimmers with superior efficiency. That’s because propane doesn’t degrade over time like diesel, costs less for fuel, and operates more quietly than conventional generators.
Storage & Distribution
Propane offers the ultimate flexibility for golf courses via a cylinder exchange system. Your propane supplier delivers full cylinders of fuel on schedule, and your crews refuel by simply switching out the cylinders on equipment and getting back to work.
