Horse with short legs should be able to pull more than one with long legs, if they are the same weight. Heavy horse should pull more than light horse. Leverage and gearing.  I could be wrong , just a thought. Noel

Nowadays some industrial engines are rated in kilowatts. More confusion!!

I seem to kill several hundred watts every month, so the electric company says!

If we're talking torque then we got to consider the knee & the hoof :)

Well, we can't have slippage, so you need to think horseshoes, too.

 

Horse with short legs should be able to pull more than one with long legs, if they are the same weight.

A longer torque wrench has more torque.

The B John Deere was originally designed to replace 4 horses.

Horsepower 11.8 (drawbar) 16 (belt or PTO) "equal to a four-horse team"

A model B tractor would perform the same work as a four horse team, thereby replacing six to eight horses.

I may be stepping out on a limb here but looking back to when gas engines were just getting started and the designers were trying to get them on the market. Here is how it went. The engine developer gathered a group of guys who's jobs were to clean up after the horses in the city. He put lab coats on them and passed them off as scientists. They went before the public and convinced them that this little engine could do the work of several horses and at a fraction of the cost. Little did these guys know that by making this claim and replacing the horse it would also cost them theit jobs. LOL
