The scope of this project was to design and development of a portable shredder machine; focuses on chopping of coconut leaves, Areca leaves and paddy straw, later this chopped powder is a source to prepare the vermin compost. The task started with the accumulation of information and data, through survey in agricultural and literature studies. Existing models are hand wheel operated, vertical and horizontal electric chopping shredder is prone to have problems like large space requirement, uneven cutting, and manpower requirement. Hence traditional methods are not sufficient and satisfactory for chopping the crop residues. Considering the user’s needs and buying capacity a prototype was designed and constructed. The proposed prototype is so designed to guide materials in different compartments by power driven transmission through chain, belt, pulley and spur gear attachment to have a chopped and powder materials. The overall operation of the proposed shredder, running at a cutting speed of 700 RPM nearly has a cutting efficiency up to 90%.
