Nebraska Tractor Test Reports Available

Nov 12, 2012

 Tractor test data for tractors sold in the U.S. is available from the Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory (NTTL) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Today, tractor manufacturers are required by state law to have all tractors above 40 hp sold in the state of Nebraska tested to verify advertised power ratings. Located in Lincoln Neb., the Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory is the U.S facility for tractor tests. Twenty-nine countries adhere to the same testing codes of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and any OECD testing results are accepted by fellow testing locations. The Nebraska Tractor Test Lab was founded by a law introduced in 1919 by William Crozier, a Nebraska legislator and farmer who though companies were unfairly inflating power claims of their machines.

2012 Summary Booklets available now. Cost is $8.56. 
Call 402-472-2442 to place your order, or click here.  

The Summary booklet contains data on all tested models that are still on the market. It is updated annually at the end of the testing season. Individual reports are generally available within a few months of the test completion date. Prices include postage and handling. Special delivery and air mail orders will be billed according to postage required.
