The influence of the cinematic indicator as well as the crushing and grinding capabilities of the soil on a sloping terrain were observed. It was found that the cinematic indicator of the router influenced greatly the two dependent variables. Its increase improved the degree of fragmentation of the soil and reduced the density of the treated soil. Increasing the depth of the grinding capabilities worsened the degree of soil crushing and increased its compaction. The condition of the soil after rotary cultivation of severely sloping terrains met all agritechnical requirements.
