Reversible Shovels type furrow openers are simple in design and because of their simple low-cost construction; they are widely used in cultivator for opening the soil. The study was conducted on the soil disruption by tractor operated cultivator type reversible type furrow openers to improve soil conditions in sandy loam soil using four types of furrow openers at operational speed and depth of operation of (1.53,1.81)m/sec and (14,16)cm respectively. Tool T-4 gave more spoil furrow width, spoil furrow depth, crescent height, spoil area and trench area.

Keywords: Reversible shovel, Soil profiles, Crescent height, Spoil area, Trench area
