If you own a landscaping business, you know how competitive it can be to add and keep clients.
It can also be challenging to manage costs. But there’s a solution: convert your commercial mowers and fleet vehicles to run on propane!
Boehlke Bottled Gas is southeastern Wisconsin’s leader in commercial propane services. We can help you every step of the way with conversion, and give you reliable service from then on.
The Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) offers landscaping businesses a reward of $1,000 for each purchase of a qualifying new propane commercial mower, and $500 for each qualifying mower conversion to propane. You may also qualify for a tax break. Additionally, if you convert your fleet vehicles to propane autogas there are incentives from the State of Wisconsin.
On average, propane is less expensive per gallon than gasoline. More cost savings come from spills and fuel theft being minimized.
Propane is a clean-burning fuel that causes less wear and tear on equipment, so operation costs are reduced. Less maintenance and repair mean your equipment won’t have to spend as much time in the shop but instead will spend more time out on jobs earning money for your landscaping business.
With a propane-powered commercial lawn mower, your employees will never have to worry about losing time filling an empty fuel tank or looking for gas cans. A full propane tank replacement is easy and takes just a few minutes.
With your fleet of vehicles, your employees often have an inconvenience trying to find a gas station. However, with our customer’s propane autogas filling station near the business premises, your employees can stay focused on the job. Autogas provides the longest driving range of any alternative fuel available on the market today.
Converting to propane or autogas-fueled equipment and vehicles not only makes fuel costs easy for business owners, but also saves time because the business doesn’t need to track receipts from multiple vendors or drivers submitting expenses for gas station purchases.
Protecting the environment can be good for your business. Propane emits up to 60% fewer carbon emissions than other fuels and, unlike gasoline, does not harm air or water quality in the event a leak occurs. Cleaner air means your employees won’t breathe in exhaust fumes while operating equipment or vehicles. Using clean-burning propane will also give you an advantage against your competitors with environmentally conscious clients.
