The arecanut sheath shredder has been designed for chopping of arecanut sheath into small pieces suitable for animal fodder. The arecanut sheath shredder consists of cylindrical cutter head with knives and also having feed roller to gather, compress and advance the arecanut sheath into the cutterhead. The shredder is operated by an electric motor and power transmitted to the cylindrical cutterhead through the shaft via the pulley’s v-belt. It is manually fed with one sheath at a time through the feeding chute. The whole sheath passes horizontally against the rotating knives and become chopped into small pieces. The overall size of arecanut sheath shredder was 1000 mm in length, 500 mm in width and 780 mm in height. The arecanut sheath shredder units get power for motion from electric motor mounted on bottom of the main frame.

Keywords: Arecanut sheath, Fodder, Cattles, Arecanut palm.
