Following a trial run during the 2020 harvest season, Ropa will make its Keiler II Classic potato harvester available with XL bunkers as standard.
Said to allow operators to use the machine to its maximum capacity, the new trailed machines can be equipped with the sieve conveyor automatic system for blockage-free harvesting and load-dependent pintle automatic function. A combination said to be unique on the market.
A weigh scale can be specified consisting of sic force sensing bolts on the bunker suspension. Weighing is fully integrated into the machine’s electronics and is carried out automatically. Users can therefore figure out yield per hectare quickly and load vehicles without exceeding legal limits.
Using the latest 1200 terminal, the weighing system can be displayed and operated via the Ropa ISOBUS system.
The Keiler II Classic is hydraulically driven and comes with ISOBUS control as standard. A quick-change frame for the pickup is part of the base equipment, allowing use in onions, and other special crops. A telescopic axle is also integrated to allow extension up to 3.5m to ensure high stability during harvest.
