Theoretical estimation of forage grass thickening using a vibratory method was performed; three cases of vibrator sinking into tensile mass (grass) were utilized. By choosing significant values of unknown coefficients, mathematical expressions were developed. These expressions were used to set movement-displacement and velocity characteristics of a vibrator in grass. These characteristics may be applied in practice when choosing working regimes of the vibrator. On the basis of the theoretical analysis of the thickening of tensile mass using vibratory method, it is possible to plan a vibratory grass thickening installation, to use the theory to give a basis for experimental research of grass thickening, and to specify approximately required indices and coefficients for experimental research.
