    2013 Kioti DK45SE HST Cab

    Default Re: kubota vs. kioti

    With the L4240 I am getting .75 gal per hour. It is 44hp and a little under 7000lbs. Most of the time the a/c is on too.
    That's about what I get out of my Kioti doing loader work with the backhoe on, throttle set about 1800.. a tick over 8k pounds..a couple thousand in the bucket...10k if I run it at 2k or more doing loader work it will use a gallon an hour.

    I haven't done any PTO work with it yet so I don't know what it would use at sustained PTO speed.

    I only did PTO work 1 time with both tractors and that was pulling a 5' rotary cutter.

    I mostly do some sort of loader work or some grading. Even pushing snow it is right around .75gph. I think the auto throttle advance and dual speed hydro help reduce the fuel consumtion.

    Kubota l3400

    Default Re: kubota vs. kioti

    Conditions and how the tractor is operated affect the fuel economy alot. If just putting around, doing a little digging, shuttling some trailers, etc. You dont burn much. Probably the thing I do that consumes the most fuel is using the bushhog. ITs quite a PTO load especially with a 6' cutter and gearing to go about as fast as I can. I can do an 8hr job and barley squeeze in a 6 gal can. SO thats about 3/4 gal/hr under my heaviest use with my L3400. Which is 29HP PTO, and with the loader, hog, and loaded tires weighs in at 5000lbs or a tick more.

    Thats astounding. Full power should use about twice as much. I often use over 3/4gph mowing with the BX1500.

    That certainly seems like alot.

    I know I have never been over 1 gallon/hr. But then again, I dont always check. But I do kinda keep tabs when bushhogging, so I can track my expenses/deductions etc.

    Does your BX have an electronic tach? OR an RPM compensated tach. Cause I typically run over the rated PTO speed by 200-300RPM. Which would tick up hours a tad faster than an actual hour. But it is still pretty good none-the-less.

    Heck, plowing snow with my 05 dodge diesel, I have never done worse than 2gal/hr while actually plowing. And on some lighter 2-3" fluffy snows, have even done as good as 1.5gal/hr. Which I thought was pretty good, cause it just "feels" like I have to give it more pedal pushing than running down the highway. But running down the highway with the plow on and ballast, I get ~10-12 MPG @ 65. Which would be like 5-6 gal/hr

    I set the throttle at full stop and take off. The BX holds rpm very well with load and I know its peaked out when it starts to bog a bit. It continues to pull well on down, but I try to hold it at the 1st point barely into bog. Mowing varies a lot. Sno throwing is easy to hold bog in deep sno with the HST. I was running 1hr/pass [real clock time] on our 1mi drive in 16" heavy dense stuf. I put 2G in after every round trip. The 4.5G tank had me worried on pushing to 2 RTs.

    A second trip would have me worried too.

    I know the fuel gauge isnt real accurate in my L3400. Can fill her clear full, (9 gal I think) and work half a day and it dont move at all. Then when it does, it drops rather quickly. Once at or near E, it takes 6 gals and its full again. I have worked it 3 hours before with it resting on E. Still only took 7.5-8 gallons or so.

    I know I can pretty much work a full day, doing whatever with it, and not have to worry about fuel til the end of the day (provided I topped off at the start of the day).
