Abstract: Developed countries uses electrically powered cleaners, but developing countries like India still depends on manual broom, in such countries proposed manually powered path cleaner would be very useful and effective. The Present work focuses on preliminary design and fabrication of a Manually Powered Path Cleaner using pulley drive. The main objective is to reduce the usage of electricity involved in cleaning the path. The cleaning efficiency of the manually powered path cleaner is estimated to be better than the manual broom when the equipment is fully completed. The AutoCAD 2018 was used for 2D modelling and the design calculations and fabrication was performed.
