This paper presents the designing, manufacturing and piloting process of havesting machine for Centella Asiatica serving Quang Tho 2 Agricultural Commune. This model is designed and manufactured on the basis of the survey taken on the characteristics of Centella Asiatica in Quang Tho 2 Agricultural Commune of Thua Thien Hue Province. Within project, experiments on machine’s moving speed, cutting speed and optimal speed are carried out. Results obttained in these experiments prove the efficiency of the proposed machine designed by authors.
