John Deere has partnered with Tech Services Incorporated and EnviroGard to train its dealers on converting gas-powered lawnmowers to propane. Dealers can be trained for about $200 to $800, and they are provided with propane conversion kits and tuners to ensure the converted mowers use fuel efficiently. EnviroGard, which also produces conversion kits for Kohler, Briggs & Stratton and Kawasaki engines, hopes its training for Deere encourages other equipment makers to follow suit, according to this article.
