The machines, supplied and supported by Thistle Groundcare Equipment, are working in high-amenity open spaces; one in Largs and the other on the Isle of Arran.
North Ayrshire Council operations manager grounds maintenance Gordon Clark said: "The Hayter LT324 mowers we have replaced gave excellent performance over their lifetime and the new gas mowers seem set to do the same. The fuel costs less and the range is greater so even before we do our analysis at the end of the season we know that our fuel efficiency is better. Equally important of course is the reduction in our carbon footprint."
Hayter sales and marketing director David Sturges said the company was always looking for ways to help its customers and was mindful of the fact that some local authorities were actively seeking ways of reducing their emissions.
"We are always trying to drive down the emissions of our products. It depends on the local authority but some are keen to cut carbon emissions and feel that LTG is the way to do that. We are always trying to help customers achieve what they need to achieve."
