With the following conditions, can the 2000EX complete the mission?

1. 700 pound payload
1 hour fuel reserve
Land on 4,000' strip (complying with the 60% rule)

2. 700 pound payload
1 hour flight + 1 hour reserve
25*C
Take off from a 4300' strip; VFR, no obstacles.

Thanks.

You haven't specified all of the relevant data, especially ZFW + altitude, but from the F2000 EX EASy green QRH "tab data" (i.e. NOT the performance AFM, & awaiting the latest QRH revision!!), some basic figures for you (subject to normal disclaimer for accuracy & intended use!!).....

1. Sea Level, landing at 25000 lbs = unfactored LD of 2530 ft (x 1.6 = 4048). Landing at 27000 lbs (load + one hr reserve???) = unfactored 2660 ft (x 1.6 = 4256).

2. Sea level, no obstacles, 30 degs C, take off at 27000 lbs, SF1 = balanced field of 3298 ft. For 33000 lbs = 4016 ft. SF2, 27000 lbs = 3454 ft, 35,000 lb = 4192 ft.

I forgot to mention the airport was at sea level but your info was basically what I was looking for, thanks for looking it up.

If you're asking about HXD...

I've been told a "classic" 2000 could leave HXD and fly a 450nm trip with 2000lb payload with a 100nm alternate, so I'm sure an EX could handle it no problem.

As far as landing goes, I only inquired about 80% numbers which it easily met dry.
