    Another source that has most tractor brands is http://www.tractordata.com/

    Now drawbar HP ratings on all tractors are performed on concrete so it doesn't reflect real world results.

    The Nebraska test were started way back when tractor manufacturers were making outrageous claims to sell tractors. The state of NE mandated them and they subsequently became the industry benchmark that allowed customers to actually see test results that covered fuel consumption, PTO/belt power and HP so they could compare brands.
