Thomas Bürger from Geroldshausen, Bavaria

Thomas Bürger's farm and contracting business is located in Geroldshausen in northern Bavaria, south of Würzburg, on the border of the Ochsenfurt region. They started harvesting beet in 2006 and have steadily developed their activities further. In 2013, already 4 euro-Tiger V8 were in operation. These were followed by three Tiger 6 in 2018 and 2019. Due to very good cooperation with ROPA, reliable service with highly-motivated team and very good experience over many years, the company invested in three new Tiger 6S for this year's campaign. Practical developments and the networking of machines with the R-Connect online portal increase efficiency and make scheduling much more convenient. Drivers and customers alike are impressed by the patented hydraulic chassis system with slope compensation.

Agro Beta GbR from Hornburg, Lower Saxony

Interview with Head of Operations Helge Büssemaker

Agro Beta GbR in the northern Vorharz region with its approx. 150 farmers has been harvesting with ROPA machines since 1996. In the past years three ROPA euro-Tigers V8-4 were in use. Since each of them harvested approx. 6,000 ha, they were replaced by three new ROPA Tiger 6S. This investment was made to ensure successful sugar beet harvesting, as the big cats, armed with many technical innovations, are expected to harvest around 3,300 ha of beet per season. Werner Hofbauer (Technology/Sales ROPA) accompanied them during the first harvesting of the organic beet at the customer's site. He also explained to the enthusiastic drivers, among other things, ins and outs of the Tiger 6S and the differences compared to the euro-Tiger V8-4 directly on the machines.
