    Using more fuel than I thought.

    My new 1025R seems to be using more fuel than I thought it would. I have mowed twice (lot size is approx 1.5 acre) and it has went from full to less than half. Yes I have played a little and did run the tractor down the road .25 mile and back. Used the loader for two really small jobs. I have heard that it should be really good on fuel but not sure if this seems right or not. Also I think it was barely on full when it arrived from the dealer. Sure is great to use. Love this thing.

    I think I burn about 1 gallon an hour, mowing at top rpm and not quite top speed.

    Good point. I didn't think to look at the hour meter. Ill check that as well. I was told to mow with the throttle up to the little gear pictured on the tachometer. I leave it in low range as well & two wheel drive.
    I just checked my hour meter and it is on 5.6 hours. I think it was just under an hour on it when it arrived. So at the most I have used it 4.6 hours. Sound normal? Thanks

    When I bought my tractor last week the fuel gauge said full and after 6 hours of use the gauge said empty so I grabbed a five gallon jug and filled it up. I know it would not have taken one more gallon it was that full. Gauge on mine is off and to make a long story short. Try topping it off and go off the hour meter and run it 5 hours and top it off again and see how much fuel it takes.

    Yeah, that sounds pretty close to what I get with my 1025 as well.

    Yep. Optimum PTO speed. You will also get a digital readout of your PTO RPM...that should be right at 540 RPM.

    I don't mow with my 1023e, but I get exactly the same fuel consumption of 1 gallon per hour.

    With 68.1 hours, I have averaged 1.36 hours per gallon / .73 gallon per hour. That is very much mixed use.

    My tractor is the 2520...which is not a fair comparison , I know. But it is a larger engine... Somewhat. Once I passed around 100-125 hours , I believe the fuel efficiency got better. Keep mind, I do not mow with it and I hardly ever get above 15-1800 rpm. My rate of use is about 5 gal in 7-8 hrs. But a few weeks ago, at the deer lease , I was jockeying around box blinds. This involved a lot of farm to market roads, so I had the engine wound tight going down the road. Fuel use plummeted to about a gal/ hr

    Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    For the MMM the PTO icon isn't really needed. It applies to the rear 540 rpm PTO. The MMM runs on a 2000 rpm mid PTO.
