Pulses crops are widely distributed in China, but mechanization production-level of this crops is relatively low at present. So, a special nail-tooth thresher for pulses crops was carried out in this project to solve the problem of mechanical threshing. The roller diameter, speed, length, and nail-tooth structure, stripper concave screen, power device and cleaning system are determined by detailed theoretical calculation. Testing result of the trial-production prototype showed that the threshing roller with large diameter and low rotating speed, the nail-tooth threshing mechanism and the concave plate screen with large spacing are suitable for the broad bean thresher. The optimal combination is roller speed 400 /min, feed quantity 1.2 kg/s and concave tolerance 54 mm. Testing results showed that impurity content and breaking rate of the developed nail-tooth type broad bean thresher were respectively 1.09 %and 3.45%, It could improve the efficiency of the pulses crops threshing process significantly.
