After this last hurricane in Florida hit it got me thinking about generators. Harbor Freight has what appears to be a decent generator that runs off the PTO. Any idea how much fuel a Perkins diesel A3.152 would consume per hour running something like a generator? The specs say the generator is designed to be powered at 540 RPM.

Just a thought.

It doesn't matter much what rpm the pto or engine runs for that matter. Fuel consumption is based on load. Put that Tractor to work using all 38 hp and I will bet you will use close to 2 gallons per hour. Drive down the road with no load, you won't use half a gallon per hour. Ben

I find the Nebraska test numbers odd also.

Thanks for the replies. Since I have a MF135 and a MF203 I think this PTO generator is the way to go. Odd why the Nebraska test shows around 2 gallons per hour, but people seem to observe much better numbers than that.

I have a PTO GEN set on my MF FE 35X A3.152 Perkins Diesel:

Had Gen set operating last week for five hours (pubic utility was off line due to wind storm)....460 PTO RPM is 60 Cycles:

Unable to share with you the Size of the load that was on Gen Set......Engine used 1/2 gallon of Diesel / hour:

Bob....

My gas version of the same Perkins burns less than a US gallon an hour, more like 3 quarts- mowing at 540 PTO. So a diesel one? Less, much less than 3 quarts an hour if she's in good shape. Some stationaries use more than that.

It would be idle or low speed so I would think it wouldn't use much. They didn't use much over a gallon per hour pulling 2 or 3 bottom breaking plow.Be cheap if you didn't have electricity.
