Exmark has unveiled the latest addition to its line of electronic fuel injection (EFI) propane commercial mowers — the Vantage S-Series Propane 52-inch stand-on rider. The new model uses a Kohler EFI propane powerplant that delivers significant increases in fuel economy, performance and reliability, along with being the most environmentally friendly engine option currently available.
The new stand-on machine joins Exmark’s existing EFI propane Lazer Z and Turf Tracer models, allowing landscape professionals more options from which to choose products that best fit their needs and enjoy the reliability, economic and environmental benefits of EFI propane power.
Daryn Walters, Exmark’s director of marketing, said an increasing number of landscape contractors are turning to propane as a way to reduce costs, increase profitability, and reduce impact to the environment. “Time and again, we hear that fuel is one of our customers’ largest expenses, and increasing fuel costs have put a serious dent in the profitability of many contractors across the country,” said Walters. “More and more of these folks are turning to EFI-propane-powered equipment as a way to reduce their fuel bill and get more work done with fewer resources.”
The Vantage S-Series Propane machine features the Kohler Command Pro PCV740 EFI propane powerplant. The engine’s automotive-style, closed-loop EFI system delivers significantly increased fuel economy, reliability and improved performance, combined with easy, no-choke starting. It precisely adjusts fuel/air mixture settings in real time for optimal performance at any altitude, any temperature, in any conditions. The efficiency of the EFI system reduces fuel consumption by up to 40 percent compared to carbureted propane engines.
The Vantage S-Series Propane model is available with a 52-inch UltraCut Series 4 cutting deck. The deck features Exmark’s patented Flow Control baffles to provide an outstanding quality of cut, and the welded steel deck construction features 7-gauge steel reinforced spindle mounting rings for top-notch strength and durability. Blade spindle assemblies feature cast-aluminum housings and zero-maintenance sealed heavy-duty bearings to maximize service life, even in the most demanding commercial cutting conditions.
