Abstract

The objective of this study is to determine the vibration value of Palm Oil Harvester Machine or CANTAS motorized cutter profile. The CANTAS machines have been divided into twelve nodes and hand arm vibration measurements are taken for idle and full throttle operation. Three cutting heads provided by MPOB have been measured for comparison purposes. The hand-arm vibration values for Type A Cutting head achieves (3.89±1.10) m/s2 for idle condition and (10.71±2.88) m/s2 for full throttle condition. Meanwhile Type B Cutting Head achieves (3.63±0.87) m/s2 for idle condition and (11.22±1.74) m/s2 for full throttle condition. Type C of Cutting Head yields (3.51±0.82) m/s2 for idle condition and (15.54±3.81) m/s2 for full throttle condition along the structure. The results also shows which points depicted highest vibration level during idle (no operation, ideally from tree to tree) and full throttle (overuse operation). These values present the maximum and minimum vibration levels that will be received by the user in daily usage of the machine. design in reducing vibration to the hand-arm of the user.
