The lawn mower is a device which is used to cut the grass in a lawn to even height. It is required to maintain the uniform level of grass as in the case of golf courses, party lawns, etc. At present grass cutters are operated by fuel and electrical energy, thereby exhausting the resources. The present project is to design & fabricate a grass cutter with reciprocating action of its cutting blade. In our project we fabricate the grass cutting machine for the use of Lawn and Golf Courses to cut the grass in the field. It can be operated manually through pedaling. It is simple in construction and its working is easy. The design objective is to come up with a mower that is portable, durable, easy to operate and maintain. It consists of a simple mechanism and the components such as chain and sprocket, sickle bar, single slider mechanism, wheel.
