A Small tractor operated BBF maker was developed and evaluated for its performance in the Department of Farm power and machinery, Dr.PDKV, Akola. Techno-economic feasibility of small Tractor operated broad bed furrow maker was carried out during the study. Implement was tested in laboratory and in the field .The main components of the implement were main frame, hitch assembly, forming board, adjustment lever, cutting blade, hitch pair. The working width was 120 cm depth of operation was 25 cm. The average draft requirement of the implement was 164.4 kgf for implement at an average speed of 2.22 km/h for the range of 18.5 hp tractor. The average effective field capacity, theoretical field capacity and field efficiency of implement was found to be 0.30 ha/h, 0.40 ha/h and 76.97 per cent respectively. The average collection efficiency was found to be 81.47 per cent and wear per cent was found to be 0.041%/h. The operational cost for broad bed making was Rs. 258.94/h and Rs 914.30/ha. The overall performance of the small tractor operated broad bed maker during the operation of was found to be satisfactory.
