Abstract:

Coconut (Cocos Nucifera L.) belongs to the family of palms. The sitting type coconut palm climbing device was fabricated at Department of Farm Machinery and Power Engineering, College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh. The sitting type coconut palm climbing device consists two different units namely upper unit and lower unit. The main components of the device were approach section, junction, seat support pipe, base pipe, seat, telescopic pipe, metal rope, and gripping face plate. One single operator can easily climb the coconut palm with complete safety. Weight of the device was 4.5 kg. The device could sustain the external load up to 160 kg.
