Tiger 6S with rubber defoliator - Kremeike GbR from Brome, Lower Saxony
Sören Kremeike operates his own farm with biogas system in Brome (eastern Lower Saxony) and serves as an agricultural contractor, who has specialized in sugar beets – from sowing to harvesting. Since 2015, sugar beet has been harvested by a euro Tiger V8-4 with a rubber defoliator. For the 2020 harvest, the team selected a new Tiger 6S, also with rubber defoliator. The choice of rubber defoliator is based on the own biogas system and the demand for this process from various customers. Very good topping results can be achieved if the setting is correct. Service is provided by Palandt.

ROPA Tiger 6S with all-round defoliator
Integral leaf-layer or leaf ejector
The integral leaf layer shreds the beet leaves and deposits them between the rows. A press of the button in the cabin switches the machine between topping modes. When operating with leaf ejection the shredded beet leaves are spread over the harvested area by a leaf-spreader with a leaf auger feeding the leaves to it. An optional leaf pile conveyor can be installed for harvesting of beet leaves (for biogas or dairy). Special thanks to Ernst Maxem, the driver.

A few impressions of the sugar beet harvest with the new ROPA Tiger 6S and a Panther
The harvesting community with its headquarters in Rosdorf near Göttingen operates in Lower Saxony, Hesse and Thuringia.
In the natural region of South Lower Saxony, upland and bordering the Harz Mountains, the beet often grows on hilly fields with medium-heavy and heavy soils. The EGW uses its five ROPA machines, three Tigers and two ROPA Panthers, to harvest over 4,000 hectares.
Our warmest thanks to the long-time Tiger driver August Capelle and to the whole team of EGW Rodegesellschaft mbH & Co. KG.
