This study was focused to experimentally evaluate the draft force on a simple tillage tool operating in different conditions in sand. The soil-tool interaction was evaluated in controlled laboratory conditions in a soil bin. A full multilevel factorial experiment was used with one response variable and four experimental factors. The selected design 3 tools × 3 tillage depth × 3 rake angle × 3 forward speed with two replications had a total of 243 runs. Influence of four independent variables including tillage depth (15, 20, 25 cm), rake angle (25, 35, 50 degrees), forward speed (0.67, 0.98, 1.39 m/s) and cutting-edge angle of the tool (30, 45 and 60 degrees) on draft force as the dependent variable was evaluated.
