The geared motor should be powerful enough to carry the payloads and weight of the machine. Remote control circuit Figure 4.

Areca Nut Tree Climber, Model No.: ATC

The device consists of a triangular base frame which supports all the components to be built upon. The project is financially supported by the Vision Group of Technology, Karnataka government, and the management of Sahyadri College.

Line diagram to calculate Length of the links Figure 2.

The nozzle is mounted on top of the guide way motors. But a very few are capable of climbing trees, main reason being irregular surface and variation of diameter with length [].

In this tree climbing machine power is obtained from 12V battery through which drive motors are energized. Skilled arecanut tree climbers have become scarce and farmers are finding it difficult to harvest the nuts. Powered By Vritee Technologies.

Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to arecznut a comment. The tension maintained by the spring must be good enough to maintain the gripping force between the wheel and the tree.

The frame of the arecanut tree climber can be opened up and held across the tree.


To help areca nut farmers reduce dependency on tree climbers Asheesh V Rao, S Siddharth, K Tred and Praveen K P Rao have developed the machine that can reach a height of about meters within a minute. Specifications are given below; Volt: So development of a unique tree climbing mechanism is necessary which may be used for maintaining and harvesting applications. Students of Sahyadri College of Eng develop a low-cost areca nut tree climbing machine!!

Tree climbing machine, Arecanut, Spraying machine. Also the bark of some trees may not be strong enough to bear the weight of the climbing device, hence conventional climbing machine cannot be used for tree climbing applications [].

The DC motor used to drive wheel arecaunt square geared DC motor. Cutting of the areca nut bunch is also easy with a special type knife of this machine.

Now the motors for controlling the nozzle attachment is switched ON with the help of remote, then these motors start to rotate. Pulley and a brake cable is used to ensure smooth movement of the links. There is a need to invent a machine to address both efficiency and safety.

Tree Harvesting Device – Arecanut Tree Harvesting & Spraying Device Manufacturer from Ponda

Such a process looks easy, in reality it is a laborious and dangerous task. The machine can be connected and detached from the areca nut tree easily. The machine can be fitted with pesticide spraying unit or nut plucking tool. Specifications and Functions of Parts Used 4. The contact friction between the wheel and tree is maintained with the help of tension springs and grippers on the wheels.


A spring is used to arecqnut sufficient grip to the wheel on the tree according to the change in the size of the tree. But they are not successful as the input for them is muscular power of the labour and it requires a person to physically climb the tree to cut the crop or harvest the nuts.

August 30, The spraying is done in monsoon, while harvest time is typically in summer. Guide way motors are rotated to the required position in order to spray pesticide to the crop. The design and fabrication of arecanut tree climbing and spraying machine is presented in this paper.

Areca Nut Tree Climber, Model No.: ATC, Rs /set, R Tech Engineering | ID:

Four seventh semester mechanical engineering students of Sahyadri College of Engineering and Arecqnut have developed a low-cost areca nut tree climbing machine that can be regulated by a remote control.

Only skilled labourers can carry out these farming operations. But plucking areca nuts need no longer be an arduous task.
