A 1929 McCormick Deering 22-36 tractor. This workhorse came to us from the Bowden area. Slightly more powerful than the Hart Parr, this tractor cleared forest, broke ground, plowed and powered belt-driven equipment. In 1920, the first tractor testing lab in the world opened in Nebraska. For tractors to be sold in Nebraska, they had to complete and pass a range of tests. These tests also established the tractor’s horsepower ratings at the drawbar and belt, shown as a hyphenated number. This tractor tested at 22-36 (drawbar and belt, respectively).
