AUSTRALIAN test procedures, though differing: in some details, and in some ways going further and telling more about the tractor, conform in essentials to overseas standards.
The tests are in four main parts—
(a) the physical properties of the tractor;
(b) the power of the engine, and its stationary outlets—the belt and the p.t.o;
(c) the power on the drawbar when working on a formalised test surface or track;
(d) the reliability of the tractor when running under test, and its condition after the test.
