    A good while

    I have a 1025R with a 647 tiller and it takes me roughly an hour give or take to do a 1/4 acre. My tiller is only 4 feet wide and I don't try to rush so I don't have to go back over it. I hope this helps

    What he said ^^^^^^^^
    Took me 3 1/2 hours to do 1 1/2 acres in our potato field last fall, again, with a 48” tiller.

    Breaking new ground, or existing seedbed?
    I did about 1/2 acre in about an hour, 60” tiller on ground I had broken up previously.

    Depends on the shape. Long and narrow would go faster than a square. Fewer turns. What are your dimentions?

    This is how I use it , long and narrow and just take my time . But I use a disk harrow to break ground and then use the rototiller and turn my ground to powder for easy planting .
