Why are clay soils heavier to plow than sandy soils?

Billy Foster says 2016-08-03 10:56:42 (CST)

less air space between soil particles would create a larger degree of attractive forces between them (harder to get apart) as compared to sandy soil. perhaps that is the reason?
Just guessing

There is more of a tendency for soil particles to stick together in clay soils.
