Sugarcane Harvester for Medium-Scale Farms

PhilMech and SRA developed this machine and was subjected to a series of tests. Limited field trials for the finalized prototype showed harvesting speed of 1.2 kph; harvesting capacity of 0.78 tons per hour; cutting efficiency of 82.37%; harvesting efficiency of 80% and billeted size of harvested cane at an average of 32.5 cm. However, recalculation and adjustments in the transmission and pump assembly components are needed to improve the speed of the machine. It should also undergo intensive field operations to test the durability of its components.
