ROPA Keiler 2L - innovation at PotatoEurope
Sittelsdorf / Bockerode / Viersen. At Potato Europe in Bockerode, ROPA presented the new Keiler 2L with overloading bunker in practical application for the first time. The ROPA Keiler 2L is a 2-row trailed potato harvester with 5.5 t overloading bunker. As well as new details, the Keiler 2L, like the proven Keiler 2, has a fully hydraulic drive for optimal adjustment for cleaning. The Keiler 2L operates independently of the PTO speed and thus maintains all cleaning units in the optimal speed range. The result is reduced engine rpm of the tractor for low vibration and less noise during harvesting with low fuel consumption. In addition to this innovation, the ROPA single-row trailing potato harvester Keiler 1 and the two-row Keiler 2 were in use.
