      Tractor: Tractor: THE NEBRASKA TRACTOR TESTS
    Posted on Tuesday, October 19 @ 12:12:56 UTC by Cars
      Tractor THE NEBRASKA TRACTOR TESTS The purpose of tractor trials was to evaluate tractor performance and allow realistic comparisons to be made between the various models and makes. The Canadian Winnipeg Trials of 1908 were a success and became a regular event, continuing until 1912. A small tractor trial was held in Britain in 1910 while in the United States trials were held in Nebraska. The Nebraska Tractor Tests became established as a yardstick for determining the relative capabilities of tractors, preventing their manufacturers from claiming unlikely abilities and inflated levels of performance.

    The tests were instituted as a result of a member of the Nebraska State Legislature acquiring both Ford and Bull tractors. Ford tractors were made by a Minneapolis company which had formed the Ford Tractor Company using the name of one of their engineers, and had nothing to do with the famous Henry Ford. The tractor did not amount to much and the eminent Nebraskan customer, Wilmot F. Crozier of Polk County, was less than satisfied with it, as he was with the Bull tractor that he had also purchased. Consequently, he sponsored a bill to make tractor testing mandatory in the state. Starting in 1920 a series of tests was under-taken to examine horsepower, fuel consumption, and engine efficiency. There were also practical tests that gauged the tractor's abilities with implements on a drawbar. The tests were carried out at the State University in Lincoln, Nebraska. The law decreed that manufacturers must print all or none of the test results in their publicity material, ensuring that no one could publish the praise and delete the criticism. The Nebraska tests were noted for their fairness and authority and this led to their general acceptance far beyond the boundaries of the state. The results of Nebraska Test Number 266 serve as an example to show the quality of the data supplied. A Massey-Harris Pacemaker made by Massey-Harris Company of Racine, Wisconsin was tested between 1019 August 1936. The tractor's equipment included a four-cylinder I-head Massey-Harris engine run at 1200rpm, with 9.84cm/3.875in bore and 13.3cm/5.25in stroke. It had an American Bosch U4 magneto, Kingston carburettor and a Handy governor. The tractor weighed 1837kg/ 40501b. The Test H Data was as follows: in gear two a speed of 2.28kph/3.67mph was achieved, as was a load of 750kg/16581b. The rated load was 16.21 drawbar hp and fuel economy equated to 6.65hp hours per gallon of distillate fuel. A maximum drawbar pull was achieved at 2.4mph in low gear with 1305kg/28781b load. Fuel economy at the Test C maximum load of 27.52 belt hp was 10.39hp hours per gallon and the Test D rated load of 26.69 belt hp yielded 10.27hp hours per gallon. The standardized data meant that the results for each tractor were directly comparable. Tractor trials were instituted at Rocquencourt, France in the spring of 1920. These tested both domestic and imported models as part of a government drive to mechanize farming in France. In the autumn of the same year further trials were held at Chartres and 116 tractors were entered, coming from 46 manufacturers from around the world. In Britain, tractor trials were inaugurated at Benson, Oxfordshire in 1930. The first running of the event attracted a variety of interest from English and American tractor manufacturers, including Ford, whose Fordson tractors were at this time being made in Ireland. The British manufacturers who submitted machines included AEC Limited, Marshalls, Vickers, McClaren and Roadless. Tractors came from further afield too: an HSCS tractor manufactured in Hungary competed in the Benson trials.
