Abstract/Contents:Profiles propane-powered commercial mowers, stating that "Briggs and Stratton...developed a propane-powered engine for use in commercial mower applications." Explains that "the primary goal was to produce a low-emissions engine...that would allow commercial lawn care companies to operate freely in the growing number of cities that have instituted 'Ozone Action Days,' banning the use of commercial mowers after 1p.m. At the same time, the engine would have to live up to the expectations of commercial end users in terms of power, performance and reliability." Discusses possible advantages to propane engines, stating that "the propane engine is more environmentally friendly from a fueling standpoint."
