  • 1 Institute of Soil Science, Agrotechnology and Plant Protection "N. Pushkarov" – Sofia


Regardless of the length of the period of use of the equipment, due to a change in technology, an increase in maintenance costs or the introduction of new requirements with a change in legislation, the machines become obsolete and are disposed of. The main methods for utilization of tractors and self-propelled agricultural machinery are considered. The equipment necessary for the disposal is also described. The methodology for determining the costs for utilization and the value of the equipment for utilization of the whole machine, element-by-element utilization and utilization after defecting has been supplemented.
