Published on the January 23, 2022 in Engineering & Manufacturing

About this project


We produce this powerful, yet easily portable electric pea sheller that is sure to save you a lot of time and effort in the task of shelling peas and beans. First created by Lee Manufacturing Company in 1976, many thousands were made with plywood. Now our Electric Pea Sheller, Sr.
(Mr. Pea Sheller) is constructed of great looking and durable aluminum which makes it much easier to clean after shelling a bushel basket of beans.
Measuring approximately 16″ in length and 9″ tall (weighs Under 20 lbs), this pea sheller is small enough to store easily and move from kitchen counter, to dining room table to patio without much effort.
Yet its powerful 1/15 horsepower motor will make quick work of pea shelling. Plug into any outlet and you are ready to get to work. Our shelling rollers have “teeth” or splines.
They grip the bean pods and pull them through.

Project overview

Shell beans need warm soil, and require a growing season that has temperatures averaging between 70-80 degree Fahrenheit (MEN, 2010). No matter what variety is grown at the farm, it is essential that the beans have well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. PH should range between 6.0 and 7.5-lime can be worked into the soil if the soil is too acidic. As learned, legumes are able to fix their own nitrogen, so it is essential that when growing shelling beans there is not an excess of fertilizer added to the plots (MEN, 2010). Over fertilizing beans will result in a large amount of lush green leaves and foliage, but few beans produced.
