Across the United States, farmers are trusting propane-powered irrigation engines to water their crops and support their livelihoods. Propane irrigation engines provide consistent and reliable power, while also being environmentally cleaner and more affordable than diesel models.
PERFORMANCE YOU CAN COUNT ON
In a recent survey, farmers gave their propane-powered engines a 28 percent higher performance rating than their previously owned diesel engines. They run on their own system, meaning grid-related power interruptions or gas line fluctuations are a thing of the past. And, since propane stores well from one season to the next, it won’t need to be drained from the tank. Because of these reasons and more, propane irrigation engines perform in ways that diesel engine owners can only dream of.
AFFORDABLE AND GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Just like any business owner, farmers want to make sure their decisions today set them up for success tomorrow. With propane irrigation engines typically having a 20 to 40 percent lower purchase price than diesel engines, as well as being cheaper to operate over the life of the engine, and by adding incentives like the Propane Farm Incentive Program that helps reduce the cost even further, propane-powered engines are the smart economic choice.
Environmentally, propane-powered irrigation engines produce up to 8 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than diesel models, and 18 percent fewer emissions than gasoline engines. Propane is so clean that it creates fewer deposits on engine components, which leads to less maintenance and a longer engine life. There are EPA- and CARB-certified models available in all 50 states, making them an easy choice for farmers across the country.
If you’re looking for a clean, affordable, reliable irrigation engine, look no further than propane.
