Sustainability in a sphere of agricultural commodities production depends on soil processing. The soil is also a considerable abrasive medium which affects in a negative way tools processing the soil. The aim of the research is to increase the lifetime of a mould board by means of a constructional setting of an overlaid material. The lifetime increasing of the ploughshare by means of the overlaying is a much discussed topic. For this reason such strategy for the experiment was chosen which would enable to increase the lifetime at preserving low costs for ploughshare treatment. The research was focused on the ploughshare lifetime increasing by means of overlaying the abrasive wear with resistant material. The ploughshares of one of the leading world producers of the soil processing machines were chosen for the experiment. The aim of the work is to compare two commonly available overlaid materials in the combination with two overlaying techniques.Keywords:
