    This link of our company should help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2JBEZWZv8k

    We have done much of the research, already have one fully propane powered crew and intend to be completely green propane powered in the foreseeable future. Hope that helps!

    We installed our own fill station in 2009. We fill all of our own tanks right in our yard.

    plus hoses, regultaors, propane tank mounts, propane tanks, 10-15% loss of horsepower...Its not a cheap conversion...


    Good Job CLS.... were the mowers you bought purpose built propane machines or converted units. What issues have you noticed.

    have you noticed any of the benefit like increased oil change intervals, from the cleaner burning fuels. ect...
