Straw walker crankshaft has an important role in combine harvesters and at high speeds must withstand high stresses. At work different forces applied to this instrument which can change its shape. In this research, stresses on straw walker crankshaft of John Deere 995 combine harvester has been investigated during its works. First a 3D model of this crankshaft has been designed on Solid Works 2010 software then by using finite element method on Ansys Work Bench 11 software the fabricated model has been analyzed and using Ansys 11 software the maximum stresses obtained and associated with these points (stresses) a safety factor has been determined.
