Tree climbing machine, Arecanut, Spraying machine. DC geared motors having reduction gears which ensures self-locking of the tyres and thus maintains the flimber.

The device has been tested for its performance and found safe, reliable, and efficient and also reduces the problems in climbing and spraying arecanut tree to a good extend.

It is fitted with three DC motors – nylon tyres with rubber grippers at degrees each other for ease of the operations. The project is financially supported by the Vision Group of Technology, Karnataka government, and the management of Sahyadri College. The design of the device has to be simple aecanut for villagers to operate, yet work efficiently to appeal to the majority.

Students of Sahyadri College of Eng develop a low-cost areca nut tree climbing machine!!

The machine can be connected and detached from the areca nut tree easily. Windshield washer pump is used for spraying the pesticide which is stored in the tank to the crop.

It has a robo cutter fixed to it and can be used to spray pesticides. The pesticide flimber being transported from the tank to the nozzle with the help of plastic tubes.

Therefore, maintaining sufficient friction force capable of handling the self-weight, maintaining the stability of the structure while in motion, reducing the total weight, and achieving the arecqnut gripping are the important parameters that have to be considered.


The geared motor should be powerful enough to carry the payloads and weight of the machine.

Powered By Vritee Technologies. To help areca nut farmers reduce dependency on tree climbers Asheesh V Rao, S Siddharth, K Shrihari and Praveen K P Rao have developed the machine that can reach a height of about meters within a minute.

Once it reaches the required height, the sprayer or plucking tool can be activated from the ground through a remote control. One crop that has been most affected by this is the arecanut.

Areca Nut Tree Climber, Model No.: ATC, Rs /set, R Tech Engineering | ID:

The machine can be fitted with pesticide spraying unit or nut plucking tool. Previous House in Karnataka, toilet in Kerala! You must be logged in to post climebr comment. Areca nuts are collected in a basket.

Areca Nut Tree Climber, Model No.: ATC

The machine can be used for spraying insecticides also. In other case, machine used requires long fixing time to attach the machine to the tree and it has certain limitations.

Only wrecanut labourers can carry out these farming operations. It is mandatory to climb the trees a minimum of five times a year for treee successful harvest – twice for the preventive spray against fungal disease, and thrice climbed harvest the arecanut. The frame of the arecanut tree climber can be opened up and held across the tree. It is the main source through which torque is generated.


To accommodate for change in the diameter of arecanut tree as the device moves up and down, a spring loaded mechanism is used for exerting sufficient tension required for gripping the tree.

Arecnaut and a brake cable is used to ensure smooth movement of the links. The contact friction between the wheel and tree is maintained with the help of tension springs and grippers on the wheels. Selection of the Wheel Average Change in circumference of the tree is taken as 30cm to 50cm.

After areacnut the ground the ground the setup is removed from the tree and attached to the next tree for spraying. August 30, Also the bark of some trees may not be strong enough to bear the weight of the climbing device, hence conventional climbing machine cannot be used for tree climbing applications []. The setup is connected atecanut the tree with the help of a brake cable.

The scope of this project is limited to climb arecanut trees having circumference between 30 and 50 cm.

H S Posted date: Climbing Mechanism and Working The arecanut tree climbing and spraying machine works on the basic principle of friction that is the relative lateral motion of two solid surfaces in contact. In aredanut tree climbing machine power is obtained from 12V battery through which drive motors are energized.
