CSIR-Central Mechanical Engineering Research Launches Electric Tiller

Dr. N. Kalaiselvi, Director General of CSIR and Secretary of DSIR, launched the Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute’s Electric Tiller in Durgapur on May 25, 2024.

The CSIR-CMERI’s revolutionary technology is customized to satisfy the needs of small and marginal farmers, who account for more than 80% of the nation’s farming population.

These farmers, who generally own less than 2 hectares of land, may use the electric tiller to do a variety of agricultural activities while saving significantly on operational costs. Furthermore, this accomplishment demonstrates India’s commitment to reaching net-zero emissions and supporting ecologically responsible farming techniques.

The Electric Tiller boasts enhanced torque and field efficiency, while also prioritizing user comfort and environmental sustainability. It significantly reduces hand-arm vibration, operates quietly, and produces zero exhaust emissions compared to traditional ICE tillers.

With the potential to decrease operational costs by up to 85%, its user-friendly design supports battery pack swapping and offers multiple charging options, including AC and Solar DC charging.

The tiller also seamlessly integrates with a wide array of standard agricultural attachments such as ridgers, ploughs, iron wheels, and cultivators. It comes equipped with a 2-inch water pump and a trolley attachment capable of carrying up to 500 kg, further enhancing its versatility.

Featuring electronic controls and ergonomic handling, operators can navigate fields with ease, minimizing fatigue and maximizing productivity. The Electric Tiller from CSIR-CMERI marks a significant milestone in agricultural machinery, paving the way for a more sustainable and efficient farming future.
