This research focuses on the design and development of the motorized cutter for harvesting in agricultural industries. The design focuses on reducing the cost, the weight of the motorized cutter and to improve the performance of the cutter in term of achieve the goals. All parts of this motorized cutter is studied and new improved cutter is designed. Three designs are made and the best design is chosen. Every part of the motorized cutter is fabricated and finally assembled. The static load analysis is done using Solidworks 3d software to determine the strength and the maximum deflection of the cutter. Also the new motorized cutter is tested to determine the performance of the product. The productivity, weight and the cost of the new cutter is tabulated and compared with the existing product. From the data, conclusions can be made that the new motorized cutter is more efficient, save cost and time compared to the existing product. In terms of cost the new motorized cutter is 25% cheaper compared to the existing product. The productivity of new motorized cutter has increased 30% from the existing product. The weight of this new cutter is also improved with only 3.2kg compared to another product which are heavier.
