World is mostly concentrating on new inventions and running with updated technology. Farmers are back bone for every country in the world. Without farmer’s livelihood is difficult. Groundnuts is grown on a small scale by farmer. The major problem in groundnut production in country like India is the lack of groundnut processing machines available to farmers. In the beginning the peanuts were separated from its shells by the workers. The output from this method was very less and could not satisfy the market demand as it was very time-consuming process. This project is mainly about to remove the barriers while removing the groundnuts. In this rotational mechanism is used. With the help this instrument the time gap reduces from removing of groundnut from plant and also the labor required reduces. This project makes the farmer to work easy and can save more time and investment. It is more efficient and can be available to all at minimum cost. With this mechanism the final outcome is nut from the shell.
