At Barnes, Inc. we want to provide alternatives to conventional fuels which are not only cost effective but provide a “Green Solution” to vehicle fleet owners and managers.
We’re proud to help lead the effort for sustainability in our area. Here are just a few of the efforts we are making:
- Alternative fueled vehicles and equipment
- Onsite alternative fuel stations
- Certified Member of MMSD Salt Reduction Program
We know customers appreciate a company that can offer competitive prices with cleaner equipment. So, switching to propane mowers was just good business sense. Now, our propane mower fleet has grown from two to 75, and we’re experiencing the advantages of expanding our use of propane.
Propane commercial mowers are safe and easy to refuel—they only require the switch-out of a propane cylinder. Outdoor power equipment powered by propane also helps keep the contractor’s biggest expense—fuel—in check with steady, reliable fuel costs compared with diesel.
Customers and pedestrians ask about the cylinders and get to learn how Barnes is helping to reduce its environmental impact by using a cleaner fuel. We use propane for our mowers as well as propane autogas for some of our fleet vehicles.
