Abstract

A manually operated mechanical machine for cutting grass was design, fabricated and tested. The machine was design with an internal gear system which transfers the torque to the mower mechanism. The machine's performance test evaluation was conducted in delta state sports stadiwn Asaba. Area of grass cut 2.1 m2 , desired height of cut 20m, time taken 2 min, area of grass cut to desired height 1.92 m2 which gave the cutting efficiency of the cylinder lawn mower 91% with 0.244 KN hwnan effort were obtained. The cutting effectiveness was achieved with a total power of 579.6 W at a rotary speed of 135 rpm of shaft. Its friendly to the environment because it does not emits carbon monoxide into the environment and the noise level is drastically reduced. The machine is considered highly efficient and is readily adaptable to different cutting conditions.
