Have a 152 that I am doing a long term test on. At 426 tanks now with no major issues. Shooting for 1000 tanks.

12-14 tank per day.
I would appreciate that saw_nut, as I have a new Efco here. I probably won't wear it out, but some things are helpful to know, like local dealers, if the need arrives.
Tanks per day yields variable production with the cutting difficulty to, and tank size obvious. Just like thinning does. I burn 7-9 tanks that could mean I cut from .25 to 0.6 ha a day, and the higher number of tanks isn't always the most ground cut. A nine tank day would be from 6:30- 4:30, 10 minutes between tanks and 20 minutes for lunch. Some tanks will last 50 minutes and others 1h:20 minutes, than others 1h:50 minutes. I tell ya, when that 2 hr tank is run, I need water bad. I was in some ground last spring that took 8 tanks to cut a ha. I have a 0.67 litre tank in my Stihl FS550. I'm saying here what I tell thinners, tanks don't equal XXX ground cut.
