Spring-Damper Control Of Lateral Cutting Angle For A Variable-Speed Moldboard Plow, Hamid F. Al-Jalil, Stephen J. Marley, Wesley F. Buchele Jan 1979

Spring-Damper Control Of Lateral Cutting Angle For A Variable-Speed Moldboard Plow, Hamid F. Al-Jalil, Stephen J. Marley, Wesley F. Buchele

Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Publications

The draft of a moldboard plow increases with forward speed. It has been demonstrated that this increase in draft can be controlled by reducing the lateral cutting angle as speed increases. This paper describes some spring-damper mechanisms used to control the lateral cutting angle of a moldboard plow bottom.
