Exmark's Turf Tracer S-Series of intermediate walk-behind mowers is now offered in propane.
The Turf Tracer S-Series EFI-propane mower features a Kohler PCV650 EFI propane engine and a 48-inch UltraCut Series 3 cutting deck. Exmark says the EFI-propane Kohler V-twin powerplant on the Turf Tracer S-Series walk-behind model significantly reduces operating costs.
- Patented Enhanced Control System (ECS) designed to deliver increased operator comfort and productivity with improved mower control ergonomics
- Floating deck is designed to eliminate scalping.
- Durability features: electromagnetic clutch, flat-free semi-pneumatic caster tires, greaseless spindles
- Exmark ultra-smooth blade engagement system for minimized maintenance and repair costs
Following the 2013 introduction of an EFI-propane Lazer Z S-Series zero-turn rider, Exmark is introducing two new EFI-propane versions of its Turf Tracer X- and S-Series hydro-drive wide area walk-behind mowers.
Propane is considered a 'green' fuel by the EPA because engines and appliances burning propane produce fewer greenhouse gasses than other fuel sources, in this case primarily gasoline. The new Exmark Turf Tracer models using the Kohler EFI-propane engine reduce emissions even further, as they use an average of 25% less fuel than a carbureted (converted gas) propane engine. Less fuel going in produces fewer emissions coming out.
The new models use EFI-propane Kohler V-twin powerplants to significantly reduce the cost of operation. The automotive-style closed-loop EFI system adjusts fuel/air mixture in real time to deliver improved running and performance combined with up to a 40% reduction in overall fuel costs, compared to carbureted gasoline models.
The Turf Tracer EFI-propane models will appeal to a wide range of commercial mower users, including landscape maintenance professionals, cities and municipalities (particularly in municipalities with air quality issues & restrictions), and local, state and national parks grounds crews.
