Abstract:

Manually operated chaff cutter is one of the most common agricultural equipment being used by marginal farmers particularly farm women. A chaff cutter (Sonkhiya Agricultural Industries, Jaipur) was evaluated with 3 different age group female workers using three different types of locally available fodders (three replications for each fodder) which are regular feed to the animals to support additional income to the farmers of southern region of India. In this paper, the measurement of the mechanical parameters like force requirement, hand cranking capabilities, length of cutting & moisture content of different fodders are reported. Force requirement was increased gradually due to the presence of high moisture content of fodders and large size diameter of fodders. Hand cranking capabilities at load conditions gradually decreased compare to at no-load conditions.


Keywords: Chaff cutter performance, Force requirement and Hand cranking capabilities
