Nowadays, in our pig field there has no special device to transport those dead pigs. In normal condition, we need some person to carry out those dead pigs from the pig field.But considering the narrow aisle, manual handling is not convenient, on one hand, these measures will increase the labor costs, on the other hand, these measures will increase the labor intensity of workers. In order to carry out those dead pigs from the pig field fast and efficient, to achieve the purpose of health cultivation, in this paper, we designed a dead pig vehicle to handle those dead pigs. The dead pig vehicle consists of chassis, lifting device, driving device, rotating device, power system and control system. The vehicle adopts self-propelled structure, which is equipped with two lead-acid batteries as power. Loading, transportation, unloading and other dead pig handling full operations can finished by only one person. The result of simulation shows that the dead pig vehicle has a good performance and a good stability, it also can satisfy the requirements of the narrow aisle. The results of this research can provide reference for the similar transportation vehicles.
