On pickups I vary my speed ~10 mph and occassionally might down shift and rev it for a mile in between.
Say I start at 45mph, run for 5 miles, give it moderate accel to 55 for a few miles, cruise there for around 5 mile, back off to 50 for a few miles then give it heck to 60mph and cruise for ahwile.
I repeat this a few times with dropping it out of high gear/OD a few times.
Our local mechanic said to hook on to something like a disk, start pulling it 2-3" deep at low speeds/ ~75% rpm, pick up speed w/ rpm until its maxed over a pass, go up a gear and repeat until your disking at 8-9mph. Take a bump stop out and repeat until you feel the tractor really getting loaded.
If you have a big drill load it 1/2 full of seed or fertilizer and pull it, essentially a varying load and you can vary speed. Then load it full and vary speed.
