LAP Lambert Academic Publishing The feasibility testing of self propelled vertical conveyor reaper was carried out for harvesting of soybean crop at Central Research Station of Dr.PDKV, Akola. The testing was carried as per RNAM test codes on four test plot of total area 1.1 ha. High frequency vibration of machine was the main problem observed during field trials. Four rubber isolators were tested to overcome this problem. One supporting caster wheel was provided for to maintain the minimum height of cut.The average effective field capacity and field efficiency of the self propelled vertical conveyor reaper was found to be 0.255 ha/h and 88.59 per cent respectively. The cost of operation of self propelled vertical conveyor reaper and manual harvesting were 775.64 Rs/ha and 1264 Rs/ha respectively.
