The small axial flow multicrop thresher was modified and its performance was evaluated in respect of different threshing losses at different cylinder speeds and concave clearances. Commonly available wheat/paddy threshers are not suitable for handling wide range of crops grown by farmers of hill region. Thresher was designed and fabricated in Department of Farm Machinery and Power Engineering, Pantnagar. The thresher consisted of threshing cylinder, concave assembly, cleaning unit, belt-pulley arrangement, and aspirator assembly mounted on a frame. The thresher was evaluated for its performance in the Department of Farm Machinery and Power Engineering during. The crops were taken from Crop Research Center, Pantnagar. The major emphasis of the study was to check the performance of the thresher after modification.
