STONEKOR builds concrete grinding and polishing machines, burnishers, and stripping machines to run on propane rather than electricity. We’re sold on the key benefits of propane-powered engines and think you will be, too, once you’ve experienced the difference. It’s a bit like cooking on a gas versus electric range. Seasoned professionals attest to the power, ease of use, and efficiency of gas-powered cooktops over electric, just as our industry leaders favor propane for its own wide list of benefits.
STONEKOR’s engines run on liquefied propane gas. This means that as an operator, you are not limited to areas that are within the reach of an electrical outlet, and you don’t need a generator.
Economically, propane use costs significantly less than electricity in most areas. Add up the cost of cords and customer chargebacks for drawing their current, and electricity and generators do not serve your business as well as propane does.
The water and slurry you contend with on a daily basis also poses some hazard to your machine operators. Liquid and electricity are an unsafe combination, but with propane-powered engines, you cut the need for electricity in a variable environment and can cut and polish concrete very safely both wet and dry. Additionally, propane is the safest motor fuel in terms of flammability.
Power and Mobility
Propane combustion engines deliver incredible power and offer its users more mobility. How much time would you save if you didn’t have to stop on a job to reposition your power source for better reach? How much money would you save by avoiding purchases of generators, cords, and electricity? How many more jobs could you win with the mobility of propane to perform anywhere, anytime?
Sourcing and Availability
Here’s something we’re very excited about: approximately 90% of the world’s propane comes from American soil. Propane is actually a recyclable bi-product derived from the manufacture of petroleum and gas and is Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-approved. Propane delivers better power and is widely used both indoors and outdoors.
These are just a few of the benefits of propane-powered equipment. Our staff can help you learn why propane power is a smart step in the growth of your business. Contact us today to learn more.
