Running a propane powered mower, a company with a fleet of these can be out there mowing whenever they want due to the low emission rating of these mowers. That is the reason that a large number of state and local bids (schools, etc) are going to these companies that can provide mowing with LPG mowers, they are not restricted to the days. And as far as having to go have tanks filled, set yourself up with a locked cage and a local company to do regular tank exchanges like they do to places that have propane tanks for retail sale.
Up in mn/wi we don't have ozone days and rarely have smog issues in the cities. Switching over is more of a proactive approach then a must like it sounds down in texas. Surprised DRJ didn't mention this when he talked about his selling more propane then gas. Selling them due to gov regs is much different then consumer demand.
