    Default Max 25 fuel efficency

    I figure my Max 25 is using about 1.2 gal of fuel per hour of pto work. What should I expect? The machine is brand new with only 9 hours on it. I presume figure will change as it gets more broken in?

    Default Re: Max 25 fuel efficency

    I'd be surprised if fuel economy changes. In the seven years I've owned my tractor, I've seen no difference. If your PTO work is mowing, you will use more fuel per hour. Other PTO attachments, i.e., log splitters, operate at lower RPM; hence, less fuel used.
    I thank God for these gifts: 2005 Mahindra 2615 HST w/loader, (485 hours), and 3710 backhoe. Markham tooth bar, Bush Hog SQ60 rotary cutter, Bush Hog 3507 angle blade, Bush Hog LLR84 landscape rake w/gauge wheels, Rankin loader mounted forks, Paumco Quick Spade, Agri-Ease 3 point log splitter.
