    Love the idea, unfortunately every time we go to price equipment with propane on it...cost is a lot higher--

    propane delivery service is not so efficient when you only have one or two pieces of equipment which run propane --driving all the way to a dealer is a dealbreaker also--we have 3 pieces of equipment-

    I'd expect you guys have some data on usage per hour compared to gasoline so we can get a better understanding of the savings-

    Hey Weekend cut easymoney, our propane EFI engine uses the same amount of gallons per hour as a carbureted gasoline engine. This will help you capture the full savings between the cost of gasoline and propane. Keep in mind the total amount saved can vary by the price difference in your region and amount of fuel consumed.

    I hope that answers your question. Thanks, Cindy

    Tell me what's not included with your warranty. Failures, beyond operator damage, that will make your warranty void.

    I say this because Kohler rejected a warranty on a 14 hp engine with us because internal oil channels were plugged and did not lube the top portions of the engine properly, although adequate oil was in the machine and on the proper service interval.

    Since propane has additional wear issues over gasoline, please respond.

    Right now, Kohler is on our reject equipment powered by list and has been since 2004.

    What's the price difference?
    any issues with power?

    Hey Weekend cut easymoney, our engines are equipped on to many different kinds of applications, as a result, the price varies.

    In regards to power output, we optimized the design so the 27hp Command PRO EFI propane engine produces equivalent power and torque to our 27 hp Command PRO gasoline engine.

    The gallons per hour fuel usage between the engines are equivalent, so you can directly compare your price of propane (in gallons) to the price of gasoline (in gallons) to realize the savings potential.
