The cultivation and harvesting of sugar beets (roots and haulm) is one of the most labour- and energy-consuming work processes in the agricultural industry. Improvements in the qualitative indicators of the sugar beet harvesting process as the final operation in the workflow of its production represent a multi-faceted research-and-engineering problem, which is to be solved based on the search for new implementable design concepts and overall beet harvester design layouts, the thorough theoretical substantiation of their design and process parameters, and the experimental verification of the completed theoretical research with the ultimate objective of the analysis and synthesis of their rational parameters. Theoretical research must play a fundamental role in the mechanical and technological substantiation of the root lifting process. It must be used as the basis for developing rational kinematic and dynamic operation conditions in order to achieve the required quality of the performed work process as well as streamlined energy consumption. This book can be considered as one of the first solid analytical studies of the process of the vibrational digging of sugar beet roots. It offers the analysis of up-to-date engineering solutions of vibrational digging tools and experimental investigations into the first vibrational lifters, as well as the equation of oscillating motions of digging shares.
