Going Green? Ferris IS3100 Propane Mower

Landscapers: Get A Leg Up On Your Competition. 

Landscapers have you been thinking about going green? Maybe you have some clients that have started asking you about alternative fuels.          

We have a few of our landscape customers that have told us, that some jobs they are bidding will only accept bids from companies that can do the job with “greener” equipment.          

Here is an option to help you get those customers: The Ferris IS3100 Propane Zero Turn Mower

Now we are not saying you need to come to Aztec Rental right now and change you entire fleet out to Propane powered units (although we would greatly appreciate it).  What we are saying is that you might want to think about getting at least one for your fleet, so you have a leg up on your competition.    

How does it get you ahead? I am sure you can think of some reasons, but here are 4 simple ones:   

1) You will be able to bid on those jobs that are requiring “greener” equipment   

2) You can advertise that you are doing your part and have “green” equipment, which can be very attractive to some clients.     

3) Some of you may know,  but many cities have “Ozone Action Days” which bans the use of gasoline fueled commercial mowers before 1:00 P.M.  Your company might have fallen victim to this and your business has been shut down during this time. The Ferris propane powered IS® 3100ZP meets all emission requirements by the Environmental Protection Agency, and will keep you operational during “Ozone Action Days.”         

4) As we all know there is always talk about more EPA “standards” or “greener” requirements being put into action, so be a ahead of the game and think about instituting a propane powered unit into your fleet.       

There is also a bonus benifit for those of you in Texas.  I am not sure how many other states are doing this but worth the research to find out.  Texas Clean Cities is offering rebates to landscapers who purchase propane powered lawn mowers.  The rebate can reach as much as $2,500 per unit.  Think of the savings this gives you on the purchase price of one of these units.

    Very informative. I have been wondering when a manufacturer would come out with a propane unit. I have never liked those conversion units.

    Hey admin, I just wanted to give you a quick heads up that your Web address:

    a possibly harmful web page in my internet browser opera.
    I’d highly suggest having somebody look into it. You could very well lose a lot of visitors due to this problem. Very best of Luck.

    Hello, I am new to running a blog and websites in general and was curious
    about how you got the “www” included in your domain name?

    I see your web address, “http://blog.aztecrentalcenters.com/2010/01/27/landscapers-get-a-leg-up-on-your-competition/” has the www and my domain looks like,
    “http://mydomain.com”. Do you know the way
    I can change this? I’m using WordPress. Thank you so much

    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

  14. August 4, 2013 at 9:55 pm | #14

    This design is wicked! You most certainly know how
    to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!

      It all deals with water flow. You must have at least 1/2 gpm flowing trghuoh the heater for it to heat the water. Less than that and it will shut off and cold water flows trghuoh. This isn’t a large volume.Solutions:Set the temperature at 120 degrees instead of a higher temperature. This way you will have more water flowing trghuoh the system, because you will use more hot water and less cold.Make sure the holes in the shower head are not clogged. This will restrict flow. Pressure in the lines. If the pressure is below 40 psi, you may have problems maintaining the water flow. If you are on a public water system, this should not be a problem. If you are on a well, you may notice this as an increase in water flow when the pump kicks on. If so, increase the pressure in the pressure tank.We have encountered all of these at one time or another with our system. Once you get it figured out, you’ll wonder why you didn’t switch sooner.

    If your Garage Door has been fixed with the presence of poles then attach the wire with the poles.

    That is why many people look to add windows to their garage door.
    These tend to be the noisiest of doors so bear this in mind
    if you have a bedroom above and need to use the door
    when people may be sleeping.
