I think it was advertised that the farmall C I had could plow 2 acres per hour. There is an old advertisement for the Farmall M that says it can plow "20 tough acres in an 8 hour day." The same ad says the farmall super C in tough plowing can go 5 hours on a full tank of fuel.
I have to laugh when I read that! I go about 20 hours on a tank of fuel with the New Holland 8670. Of course, it also takes me 8 hours to plow 20 acres with that big tractor, because I have to plow one way, throwing up hill, and my fields are scattered everywhere and some are very short. I spend more time turning around than I do with the plow in the ground, guaranteed!
Just to see if we could do it, a buddy of my with a Massey Harris 101 Jr. twin power, and I with a Farmall C decided we were going to put in 7 acres of soybeans. It took us just as long to get the ground worked with those two tractors as it did for me to work 45 acres of corn ground with a ford 7000 and matching implements. Although, we do have hard pulling limestone clay ground. If you've never plowed limestone clay... well, I don't think I could describe it.
