Folks I'll post this on the implement page as we but thought and hit up Ford tractor page as well. I've read a few non-direct comments on tractor implements he based on multiple factors to include the horse power of tractor. My question is that horsepower based on the overall engine HP or the drawbar HP as there seems to be a different of opinion on this?

The reason for the question was driven by as I was looking at disc harrows online and some sites listed implements recommended for tractors within a certain HP ranged (25hp-35hp, 30hp-45hp, etc) and was wondering which HP they were referencing? Totally get picking right implement is based on numerous factors (task, soil, weather, speed, etc) but assume the power of the tractor does play a big part on choosing the size of the implement to optimize the job.

Such recommendations would almost certainly refer to advertised PTO HP.

My opinion is that A dynamometer can easily read PTO HP and can be accomplished in a manufacturer's test bay whereas drawbar HP depends upon lots of variables and tractor to soil contact...much more cumbersome, too many variables and expense.

The difference in usable HP numbers between the Dyno and field test depends on the tractor's drive line and tire to ground contact efficiencies, so guessing the latter is just a crap shoot unless you do it where you want to pull, at the time you want to pull, with the weather and soil conditions when you want to pull, with the implement you want to pull, adjusted correctly for the best performance.............get the drift?

These days, such decisions are usually based upon PTO HP.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
