Abstract: When an equipment is operated with tractor, efficient and economical working can be achieved by creating appropriate conditions for this equipment. In this research, relations between work rate and fuel consumption in working with moldboard plow, sweep cultivator and disc harrow, were examined. For this reason, working conditions providing maximum work rate and minimum fuel consumption, were approached and achieved by evaluating the laboratory and field tests together.
