All ROPA potato harvesters impress with a variety of practical unique selling points. Particular highlights are the fully hydraulic drive with its own load-sensing hydraulics, telescopic axle, as well as the quiet operation and increased crop protection.
Here are some impressions of the first use experience of ROPA Keiler potato harvesters from various customers in Germany and around the world.

Experience report - ROPA Keiler 2 at KWS Klostergut Wiebrechtshausen
Steffen Köhler talks about his experiences with the potato harvester ROPA Keiler 2 during the third harvest at the Klostergut of KWS in Wilbrechtshausen.
As a student of agricultural science, he worked as a trainee at the Klostergut and started working there full-time as a farmer after completing his studies.
In 2018, the ROPA Keiler 2 was purchased and put into operation. With its individually adjustable cleaning units thanks to the completely hydraulic drive, the Keiler 2 is especially gentle on the potatoes, which is particularly valued by this experimental farm.
Keiler 2 - Olligs family, Bedburg-Kirchherten, North Rhine-Westphalia
An eye-catcher - Keiler 2 and John Deere 6175R with special design and tyres
The Olligs family runs an arable farm with 250 ha in the Rhineland (Bedburg-Kirchherten). It is a family-run farm with a long tradition that is already in the hands of the third generation.
Potatoes have always been cultivated in Kirchherten thanks to the very fertile soil of the Jülicher Börde.
As a result of soil points between 80 and 95, a loess soil depth between 5 and 10 metres and rainfall between 750 - 900 mm, it is possible to grow not only high-quality potatoes, but also other crops thrive on the high-yield soil of the Jülicher Börde.
Two Keiler 2 - Großmann‘s Feldfrüchte in Vierkirchen-Pasenbach, Bavaria
One of the largest organic farms in Bavaria, Grossmann‘s Feldfrüchte, chooses ROPA
The potato harvest is in full swing at the two-generation farm of Peter Grossmann-Neuhäusler. This is already routine for the well-rehearsed team – but new this season are two ROPA Keilers, which harvest the organic potatoes. The operation is completely mechanized for the planting, care, and harvest of the fields and, thanks to new investments, offers storage capacities for approx. 8,000 t of potatoes. In total, between 40 and 60 seasonal workers are employed at peak times for harvest, care, and storage work.
