Anybody have an idea what the fuel consumption of a 730ck with the A251 gas motor might be? I am trying to figure out what my fuel cost will be to do some custom work for a customer,and all the sites that are listing the HP, don't say how many gallons per hour, or gallons per HP the tractor uses....any help would be appreciated....Shawn

When working for others I charge $65 per hr. for my Case LA it uses abput 4 to 5 GPH. You need to charge enough to cover any cost of repairs and oil and labor for yourself. I don't want to get rich just don't want to loose money working for others.
So far I have spent all my earnings on repairing things and aquiring new stuff. Walt

The book that I have is for the 730 hi - profile which is one model older than the CK. It says for gasoline 3.354 galons per hour .

I bet a hard pull would consume more than that. Glenn

Glenn, I think you are probably right , my 730 diesel was rated about 2.5 gal/hr. Back in the 60's when I was renting farm ground I had duals on it and in these hills and heavy soil, I was pulling a 10 ft disc , ten ft cultipacker , and a 12 ft
spring tooth and itwould use 3 plus / hr the first time over plowed ground. george
