PERC video features longtime propane mower user

August 20, 2019 -  By

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) added a new video to its Straight Talk video series highlighting Barnes, a Madison, Wis.-based landscape contractor that operates 75 propane-powered mowers.

Available online at, the new video provides an updated look at Barnes’ experiences using propane mowers five years after being initially featured in a 2014 Straight Talk video discussing its initial foray into operating with propane.

“Barnes is a textbook example of a contractor who starts by integrating just a few propane mowers into its fleet, and then ultimately expands its propane use into much more of the fleet after experiencing the fuel’s numerous benefits,” said Jeremy Wishart, director of off-road business development at PERC. “In just five years, Barnes has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in overall fuel and maintenance costs from using propane mowers. We hope this new Straight Talk video can help show how a commitment to using propane can really make a difference for landscape contractors in both the short and long term.”

PERC’s Straight Talk series is a free online library of video testimonials that lets viewers learn about propane mowers directly from landscape contractors, outdoor power equipment dealers, municipal fleet directors and golf course managers who use the equipment daily. The testimonials give firsthand accounts about how propane saves on fuel costs, lowers emissions and what it’s like to operate and service equipment powered by the alternative fuel.
