Abstract The objectives of this research were to develop and efficiency assessment of groundnut sheller machine. The expectation of this research was to raise production of groundnut to higher performance and safe work-times due to the shortage of labor in the agricultural sector. The components of groundnut sheller machine are sheller rubber wheel, hopper, cleaning fan, and sorting sieve. The performance of sheller was tested used to crack peanuts of โThainan 9โ variety with a 1 hp electric motor. The rotational speeds of the sheller rubber wheel were set to 170, 200, 230, and 260 rpm at the rubber wheel diameter of 30.48 cm; the gap between the sheller rubber wheel and the grate plate was set to various lengths: 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, and 2.0 cm, respectively. It was found that the optimal parameters were the following: a sheller rubber wheel speed of 260 rpm and a gap of 1.8 cm between the sheller rubber wheel and the grate plate. Those parameters provided 96.10% perfectly cracked groundnut and a groundnut shell cracking capacity of 333.20 kgh-1. An engineering economic analysis showed that, for an operation of 300 day year-1 and 8 hour day-1, the break-even period was 8 days and the break-even point was 2,480 kg year-1. These findings may benefit peanut farmers in their quest for a higher production capacity with less manual labor.
