Cultivation is not fulfilled without perfect harvesting, especially for groundnut. Harvesting and threshing consist of the following operations such as digging, lifting, stripping, and cleaning. Some of these tasks can be eliminated or combined depending on the system applied. In groundnut cultivation the field operation is concerned with threshing and harvesting is the most tedious, laborious, and costly endeavor. Among the field tasks worried about groundnut development, collecting and shifting are the most relentless and exorbitant undertakings. During peak season, the non-availability of labor leads to delays in harvesting results the pods being left in the soil due to the weakening of pegs. Also, late harvesting may expose the crop to field pests which cause substantial loss and it gets easily germinated within the field. Hence, the objective of the present study was to design the tractor-mounted groundnut combine harvester using Solid works software, and the parts which carry more load at harvesting and threshing operation were analyzed such as the digging blade, threshing cylinder by using ANSYS R17.0 for the static structural analysis.
