Product Description

Groundnut Digger

The innovator has developed a tractor operated machine, which mechanically digs out the left over pods from the soil. It consists of elaborate system of crankshafts, flywheel, connecting linkages and rotating vanes on a shaft. A sieve is provided with a vibrating mechanism to filter the groundnut from the soil. As the tractor moves forward, the vanes rotate and dig into the ground, scoop and drop the soil-groundnut mixture into a vibrating storage unit with a sieve base. The system of linkages and drives vigorously vibrate the entire unit to shake the soil loose and the groundnuts stay trapped at the top in the central storage unit as the soil gets sifted out onto the ground. A window hatch is provided at the back that can be lifted and the groundnut taken out by a person into a basket.
