Mango fruit is the most popular fruit on the planet and most likely fruit cultivation grown in Ethiopia. The peeling of the mango is one process that is done traditionally and time-consuming. Not only this but also, during peeling, there is the loss of pulp within seed and peel. A process of peeling is removing the peel from mango pulp which is commonly done manually which results in a waste of time, low and fewer quality products and hand hurt. To make the peeling process easy, a peeler machine was designed and developed. The peeler machine consists of the frames, spur gears, sample shaft, blade shaft, screw shaft, blade, and handling which has been made of locally sourced materials to making it cost-effective. After the design of the peeler machine, the efficiency of the developed prototype was carried out by using mango fruit. The abstract focused on designing and developing an effective peeler machine for both commercial and household use with the main objective of improves the hygiene of any mango product processes, increase supply of mango fruit in restaurants, reduce environmental waste and may reduce the highest cost of processed mango product in market.
