internash 374011 26 How much fuel? either
How much fuel?
Hey, Some guy told me on another forum that his tractor uses 80 gallons (400litre) of diesel every day:-[

I thought that was totally crazy!
So, I would like to know how much fuel your tractor/s uses in a day?
Also please say what make/model you tractor is;-) Thanks.

Re: How much fuel?
400 litres of diesel?!?! Impossible

My older tractor (36 HP) has 35Liter reservoir, and in a day's work i burn one and a hlaf to max two reservoirs of fuel.

The same thing with the new tractor (46 HP), except new one has 45litres reservoir, and 1.5-2 reservoirs in one day.

I load my tractors from 1 800 to 2 200 rpm


for consuming 400litres of fuel in a day, you need to have a 400 HP tractor with a big hole in the fuel tank... There is no possibble way to burn 400 litres diesel in one day... In 24hrs, maybe, but in 12hrs no way...

Re: How much fuel?
Why is that impossible?

I work with a John Deere 9400T, and when i make a full day(14-16hours) of cultivating, i will use 900-1000 liters of diesel.
The fueltank of the 9400T is 1100 Liters.

The one on the 9520T is 1200 Liters, this one will use 1000-1100 Liters on a full workday.

The tractors run around 1800 rpm with this kind of work.

*And theres no hole in the fueltank Bobo;-)

Happy with this confirmation? :-D

Re: How much fuel?

Re: How much fuel?
My 4755 (235 hp) uses as much as 300 litres in a long day (15 hours). I have fuel metering on my tank pump, so I know its about right.

Re: How much fuel?
Hehe Rony... Yes, you are right...

You burn in one day, what i burn in one year... :-D

I burn arround 1500litres per year, and I'm trying to cut down on the joy riding in my tractors, but I'm now happy when you told me your fuel needs...

Re: How much fuel?
I'm glad it's not on my farm haha, it's on my boss' farm.

But still, they burn a lot of fuel a year, but compare it to this as well:
your farm ...ha
his farm 1500-2000ha

Re: How much fuel?
Our tiny JD tractors (2120's) they only had 70 litre tanks.

No wonder they couldn't do a days work, on a tank full. :-(

The new Fastrac has a bigger tank, about 375 litres, similar to the 4755.

I use about 15,000 to 20,000 litres / year

Re: How much fuel?
My farm is at this moment arround 22ha of workable land.

The biggest farmers here have arround 200-250ha of land.
In more flat areas of the country, it can go up to 500ha...

In comparison to JD fuel needs IMT is not a big spender at all! Imt 5136 (135HP) has a 280 litre reservoir, and it can plough for two full days with it... This means about 130-135 litres per hard working day.

Re: How much fuel?
We do about 1000 houres a year with a Ford 4000, 5600 and a bit with a 2600. We burn about 4000 litres a year I thought. I've been able once to plough about 3,4 hectares with about 73 litres. I had to go homeward, the tank was as good as empty :-D

Re: How much fuel?
our contractor has a john deere mais harvester and that thing uses about 600 liters of fuel in a day without stopping the engine, at him a day is 24 hours lond, so in 24 hours, his mais harvester uses 600 liters of fuel, thats a john deere harvester 6810 i think, that's what a driver of this contractor told me while they where harvesting our mais last year.

ggrrreeetttzzz

Re: How much fuel?
This was very interesting:-)
It seems there is big difference in litres/day.
I hope I will never have a tractor that uses 400+litre:-[

Re: How much fuel?
our jd9780CTS uses 350 liter of diesel in one day, about 12 to 14 hours, it is 355hp, almost the same engine as an 8520

Michiel, ik denk dat ik ook maar eens bij jullie kom tanken, misschien kan het nog wel uit om hiervandaan helemaal naar geijsteren te rijden:-D
