Maize sheller is the most common shelling machine or device for maize. In the market there is numbers of maize sheller either manually operated or power operated is available but research has been going on to design a simple and productive maize sheller. The developed solar maize sheller is solar powered to suit the maize farmers of remote area where electricity is not available. The sheller consist different component such as Shelling assembly, DC motor, Solar panel, Battery etc. the overall dimension of developed solar maize sheller is 1055 mm X 645 mm X 450 mm. the solar panel of capacity 40 watt is use as source of energy for dc motor of 250 watt. In additional battery of capacity 168 watt is provided. The output capacity of the developed sheller is 174.33 kg/h.
