Laboratory Evaluation of Simple Tillage Tools at High Speed 952128

The performance of simple tool shapes in terms of draft with speed of operation was evaluated in the soil bin facility of the Department of Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering, University of Saskatchewan. A hydraulic driven monorail system was developed, which was capable of speeds up to 10 m/s. The results showed that the disturbed soil remained close to the cutting path, and the elliptical shape exhibited the lowest draft increment with speed.
