Abstract:

In a many Farm fields, stones are present in the soil. Stones are a major problem in a farm to resist the growth of plants. It is also damage the tillage tools and harvesting machinery. The damage of harvesting machinery can be very expensive and takes substantial periods of time to repair. Most of Indian farmers collect stones manually. In a process of removing stone, operation involves digging up the stones and separating it from the soil. But manual collection of stones fail to dig out all the stones from the field and many stones still remain in the ground after collecting stones from the field. Hence, it was planned to fabricate a stone collecting machine and to study its performance. Major components of the developed machine are digging blade, conveying unit, stone collecting trolley and power transmission system. A frame holds the different components of machine. Digging blade was hold with help of four nut-bolts which are mounted on frame. PTO operated conveyor was attached at the upper edge of digging blade which is operated at the speed of 33.6-42.0 m/min.
