Anti-Shake and Balance System

Uneven surfaces (e.g. when driving along a wheeling) are transmitted to only half the frame thanks to roll stabilization of the chassis!

Optimal surface contour adaptation with two swing axles with stabilisation cylinders - cabin, bunker and chassis remain in horizontal position.

Chassis concept with wheel load compensation system and computer-controlled slope level adaptation

The ROPA Panther 2 has an innovative chassis concept with 2 floating axles in conjunction with 4 stabilising cylinders. Compared to conventional chassis of 2-axle beet harvesters this reduces the sway of machine by 50 per cent. The reason for the improvement is the hydraulic connection of the stabilising cylinders at the front and rear axles on one side, so unevenness at one wheel at a different level only affects the frame by 50 per cent compared to the previous system. Thanks to the reduction of the chassis swing, the row and depth control is improved simultaneously, as the frame is averaged to the position of both axles.

Fully automatic slope compensation

Roll stabilisation with fully automatic hydraulic wheel load and slope compensation

■    2 swing axles with 4 stabilisation cylinders
■    50% less rolling motion on chassis and three point for more precise row guidance and less damage to beets
■    Reduced material wear, extended service life
■    Hydraulic connection of the stabilisation cylinders from each side
■    Compensation of wheel loads between front and rear axles -> better traction and soil protection
■    Greater slope stability, less risk of tipping over
■    Better lifting depth control, less soil pickup
■    Large-size Michelin Ultraflex tyres, only 2 bar pressure
■    Better driving comfort even on oblique descents and headlands
