Users and Fabricator related problem.

CHALLENGES ON THE BASIS OF OBSERVATIONS

 

USER ->

  • Starting the vehicle is a challenge for a user as it requires high strength and causes pain in different parts of the body.
  • Handling of bullet santi requires practice. It is difficult to plough the field without damaging the crops, in other words, to drive it straight is itself a painful task.
  • Turning the vehicle in small radius, so as to cover maximum area of land at one go.
  • Ergonomic factors are a major concern. Continuous use leads to back pain, shoulder pain etc.
  • Avoid toppling of the vehicle while driving.
  • Farmers need an extra person to stand on the plough to provide enough weight in the models without hydraulic systems.
  • The manual lifting of plough diverts concentration during driving and it is also very heavy.

 

MANUFACTURER ->

  • Reduce the weight of bullet santi to some appropriate value so as to balance both proper soil aeration and avoid toppling due to light weight.
  • To introduce kick starting mechanism or self-starting mechanism and route out rope mechanism which is ineffective.
  • To provide proper customer service once after the vehicle is sold. So that they can overtake the major advantage of a company tractor over bullet santi.
  • To introduce draft control mechanism to avoid damage of plough with comes because of its frequent strucking in the lumps of soil and stone.
  • To manufacture the vehicle with fresh parts so as to increase its life.
  • To incorporate more functions which are available in a tractor.
  • To modify it so that it can be used for other crops also.
  • To reduce turning radius of the vehicle.
  • To improvise the vehicle and also reduce the cost at the same time.
