This study aims to evaluate the performance of the machine corn sheller and perform basic cost analysis and break-even point. Sheller was done on three varieties of maize in Padang and surrounding areas. Corn used is corn that has a moisture content (17-20)% with three repetitions. Based on research, capacity sheller machine Maxpro NK 99 varieties obtained 80.49 kg / h with the cost of Rp.120,88 / kg and breakeven 38135.59 kg / year. Pioner 24 varieties of working capacity of 67.52 kg / h with the basic cost of Rp 114.48 / kg and the breakeven point at 66399.66 kg / year, and the work capacity of NK Maxpro 22 varieties of 55.40 kg / h with a cost of Rp. 139.53 / kg with a breakeven point 40186.26 kg / year.
