Most of my TO 20 use is lawn mowing at least once every 10 days with a 5 foot Land pride finishing mower. At least one US G/H but i'm up and down on the throttle alot.
What would be ideal is to have somekind of a cheap fuel flow meter to install in the gas line.

I've never tried to plow a field with my TO 20.

Let us assume an average corn field cultivation for the momment:

I realize there alot of variables. But assuming somekind of average corn growing conditions then what is the MOST number of acres that a gasoline powered TO 20 or TO30 or the TE 20 would be reasonably expected to successfuly handle thru out the corn growing season????

Quite frankly i have absolutely no idea. So just somekind of educated guess from any of u experienced farm owners would be much appreciated.

It depends on how hard the engine is working on how much fuel it uses, no matter what kind of work it is doing. Make sure the blades are sharp ALL the time, besides making it easier to cut it will make a much nicer cut on your grass. Try and keep a constant speed on the engine, you should not be changing engine speed all the time on a PTO driven implement, it is designed to run at a more or less continuous speed (3/4 throttle = 540 PTO revs). Any variation in traveling speed should be done with the gearbox, if you need to keep varying your traveling speed, you should drop a gear as you are going too fast. You should not be varying the throttle or slipping the Clutch all the time. Select a gear that will give you the correct speed using the 3/4 throttle setting....John(UK)
