Abstract/Summary

The Final Design Review (FDR), this report, encompasses the work done by three Cal Poly Mechanical Engineering seniors along with two other teams of four (members each) for Brian Rois-Mendez. Originally, Dr. Mendez presented his idea to clear overgrown brush along trails. Our main purpose was to eliminate the drawbacks of his prototype and improve where we saw fit. For our team specifically, to reduce the workload of clearing brush, we focused on designing a seamless vertical and horizontal adjustment as well as increasing the trimmer’s cutting power. This report will cover the details of said evolutions.

Since the Critical Design Review (CDR), there have been a few design changes and a significant number of additions – all of which have reasons explained further in this report. We found a lot of alternatives for future recommendations as well. After going through this document, the reader should walk away with an understanding of how our subassembly well enough to be able to theoretically build it themselves given the necessary tools.
