WASHINGTON — Contractors who visit booth No. 7094 at GIE+EXPO can enter their name into a drawing for a chance to win a tricked-out 16-foot Big Tex trailer loaded up with an Exmark propane-powered mower, tools and accessories from the Propane Education & Research Council. The trailer is central to PERC’s 2018 booth theme that showcases how propane equipment can help a contractor’s business over the long haul.

“We’ve seen time and again that once a landscape contractor tries propane equipment for the first time, they don’t turn back,” said Jeremy Wishart, director of off-road business development for PERC. “Propane offers contractors so many long-term business benefits, including lower fuel costs, a cleaner operation and more productivity all season long.”

All contractors have to do to enter the contest is visit PERC’s booth, No. 7094, and sign up for The Cut, a quarterly e-newsletter from PERC that offers business tips, propane facts and peer case studies. Contractors must be present in the booth at 4:00 p.m. on Oct. 18 when the drawing takes place in order to win.

In addition to the trailer itself, the winning contractor will also take home the following tools and accessories:

  • An Exmark Lazer Z S-series propane 60” zero-turn mower.
  • A propane grill.
  • Shirts, gloves, hats and cooling towels to outfit crews.
  • Water bottles and a five-gallon water cooler to keep crews hydrated.
  • A handheld flame weeder.
  • A portable propane generator.
  • Various hand-held landscape maintenance tools.
