Abstract: 
A differential lock control system was designed and developed for activating the differential lock mechanism automatically and without the driver’s interference at various working conditions as well as providing safety. The system is comprised of the main control board equipped with monitor and keyboard which receives input data from the sensors mounted on the wheels and steering rod, processes the data, and controls the hydraulic actuator as according to the predetermined conditions. The system was tested and evaluated after fabrication and its accuracy determined. A field experiment with three replications was conducted to investigate the effect of gear ratio (high and low), the method of tractor movement during plowing (over the preceding furrow and on the unplowed land), and differential position (conventional and under the developed control system) on drive wheel slippage and fuel consumption of MF399 tractor with mounted three-bottom moldboard plow. For data analysis, a 2×2×2 factorial experiment was applied with a randomized complete block design. The results of analysis of variance of test data showed the highly significant effects of plowing method, differential position, and their interaction and also the significant effect of gear ratio on drive wheel slippage. Moreover, differential position showed the highly significant effect on fuel consumption, so that with differential lock engagement under system control, the fuel consumption was reduced from 25 to 40 percent on the average. The overall results indicate that the continuous employment of this type of differential lock control system is needed for reduction of energy consumption and increasing of the tractor efficiency and field capacity.
