This study aims development a lab-scale solar grass cutter and to evaluate the performance of the developed machinery for field efficiency. In this regard due to the continuous increase in the cost of fuel and the effect of harmful gases from the burnt fuel into the atmosphere, this necessitated the use of renewable solar energy from the sun as a source of energy to drive a solar grass cutter. Solar grass also saves energy and reduces workers’ fatigue. In this project, we have to decide to develop a solar grass cutter. The main component of a solar grass cutter is a direct current (D.C) motor, a rechargeable battery (12v), a solar panel, a stainless-steel blade, and a control switch. Performance evaluation of the developed machine was carried out with different thicknesses of cutting blades. The solar grass cutter is light in weight and easy to handle. The detailed design of the solar grass cutter component was giving the result of field efficiency is 85% with 2 mm and 6 mm blade thickness which demonstrated the ease of use as well as better grass cutting. Cutting blade height is adjustable for different heights of cutting grass. The battery, which takes about 2 hours to charge, is capable of cutting grass an in area of 300 square meters.
