    Exmark makes them with Kawasaki if I get another zt it would have propane bcus you can save at least 30% from spills etc but I just have a kohler 24 for now bcus I got it free but it is at least from year 2000 it has 850+hrs. If you find an extra used one let me know. Good luck.

    There is a company where I live that uses 2 Dixie chopper propane and he claims he saves 5000 dollars a year on fuel, the only issue is you have to have extra tanks to swap out or have a convenient way of getting them full

    Yes sir, this guy, made a stand that hold four tanks in the bed of the truck, The only bad thing is it looks like he is hauling kegs around all day. Hahaha

    Thanks Terry, I live in Belize, Central America. There are no dealerships that you would know down here. I will get my mechanic to do the conversion no problem all I need is the right kit, I am planning to remove the gas tanks and mount two 8 gallon propane tanks one on each side, like I have on my Ferris.
    Let me know thanks.

    I think this will come of age before electrics such as the Xeon can make commercial standards. I'm running 36" and 48". The problem is the tanks make them wider than the track. I would like to see a front mount on a stander.
