This paper presents a two-stage experimental process to determine the reasonable operating parameters of the sugarcane peeling machine based on the principle of circular brush. The first stage is to qualitatively determine the quality of sugarcane peeling to determine the speed range of the brush disk. The second stage specifies the value of rotational speed and cane push speed to be able to clean sugarcane with a diameter of the cane stem about 20-40 mm. Based on a reasonable set of parameters, the authors designed and fabricated a prototype of a sugarcane peeling machine with a spinning speed of 750 rpm and a cane pushing speed of 15-20 s/m. The machine has a productivity of 70 canes/hour and wears away an average thickness of about 0.767 mm, satisfying the condition of cleaning sugarcane. The research results are the basis for the mass production of sugarcane peeling machines according to the principle of circular brush with lower cost and higher productivity than other types of sugarcane peeling machines according to the principle of knife.
