JJR Engineering strives to produce a tractor mounted weed trimmer product for M&M Engineered projects. The design should include but not limited to: • 3 point mounted, PTO powered • Ability to mow/cut/trim grass, weeds, and small brush. • The cutting should work adjacent to either side of the tractor. • Work in and around buildings, fences, ponds, and structures. Design is open to changes suggested from client or from other unforeseen issues.
Scope of Work
For the project is building a PTO powered weed eater for the client, M&M Engineered Products. The client has given a list of specifications, JJR Engineering has added to the list which is summarized below. • 3 point mounted (CAT I/II), PTO powered • Ability to mow/cut/trim grass, weeds, and small brush. • The cutting should work adjacent to either side of the tractor. • Work in and around buildings, fences, ponds, and structures. • The client needs to be able to fabrication easily and cost effective. A list of task to accomplish the above goal is summarized below. Find and summarize the current market products, test material for the blade(s) for cutting head.Test different blade types (plastic, metal, and composite).Test different blade shapes.Test blade(s) in different length/type of crops.Design and model the complete product.Initial hand sketches. Hand calculations. SolidWorks modeling. Finite element analysis of computer model.Manufacturing drawings.Build completed design that has been approved by client.Test completed product to make sure that it meets acceptance criteria.Testing on different tractors.Testing on different crop (like ones before).Testing in different conditions.
