Abstract:

There are many equipments for transportation of goodsavailable for on road transportation for commercial purposes. But for on-farm transportation of agricultural goods, there are only limited options which include ox carts, donkeys and camels etc. The manual transportation of loads is also present in villages. The conventional practises for transportation of agricultural goods involves drudgery to both animals and humans as compared to modernized methods of transportation.Tractor trolley is the modern day device in agricultural sector available for transportation of agricultural goods. But generally tractor trolleys have larger space requirement and are highly expensive which is not affordable by every section of the farmer’s society. Therefore, hydraulic operated hay rake cum loader was developed which has loading capacity of 500 Kg. The paper focusses on the structural properties of the device viz bending moment, moment of inertia, section modulus, bending stress, modulus of elasticity and deflection. The cost economics of the device is also evaluated. The payback period and benefit-cost ratio was found as 3 years and 1.732 respectively.The main aim of the study is to develop low cost transportation device with low manpower requirement and affordable by every section of the farmers society.
