ROPA Keiler 2 Classic
ROPA Keiler 2 Classic with 2 pintle belts
Many proven components of the Keiler 2 have been adopted in the design of Keiler 2 Classic. The Keiler 2 Classic differs mainly due to both pintle belts which function as separation devices. The overall design demonstrates very high output with maximum product protection in areas with low cleaning requirements (sandy or separated soils). The Keiler 2 Classic with the pintle belt 1 and pintle belt 2 cleaning systems is easy to monitor, it is accessible and easy to service.
The very spacious sorting stand has ample space for up to 8 persons at the gently rising and generously dimensioned picking conveyor with an optional trash track. Thanks to the extendable platform, there is also space for additional sorters next to the trash track. Paired with the height-adjustable platforms this allows every workstation to be separately adjusted for maximum ease of working.
The Keiler 2 Classic, like all models, is fully hydraulically driven and comes with the ISOBUS control unit as standard equipment. The quick-change frame for the pickup is also integrated as standard equipment, enabling this machine to be used for harvesting onions and other specialised crops with the reduced cleaning units. The telescopic axle has also been integrated to allow extension by up to 3 m during harvesting and up 3.5 m to ensure high stability with lifting.
Keiler 2 Classic with XL bunker as standard
The potato harvester Keiler 2 Classic with 2 separation units and a large sorting platform is particularly effective on light soils. With the new ROPA XL bunker, the bunker volume has been increased in order to make the best possible use of the high harvesting performance The automatic filling system with ultrasound sensors ensures optimum filling of the bunker. The bunker can be supplied by an articulation unit, so the fall height of the trailer can be reduced for gentle trailer filling.
Keiler 2 Classic with overloading bunker
The Keiler 2 Classic can also be optionally fitted with drive wheel and truck loader bunker. The capacity of the truck loader bunker on the Keiler 2 Classic can be increased to 6 t.
The quick-change frame for the pickup is also integrated as standard equipment, enabling this machine to be used for harvesting onions and other specialised crops with the reduced cleaning units.
Careful cleaning with two pintle belts
Cleaning elements in Keiler 2 Classic
1. Sieve conveyor 1
2. Picking conveyor
3. Pintle belt 1
4. Triple deflector roller
5. Leaf chain
6. Rotating finger comb (alternatively triple deflector roller)
7. Pintle belt 2
8. Dirt discharge conveyor (optional)
9. Trash conveyor
10. Trash return conveyor
11. Sieve conveyor 2
12. Trash discharge conveyor
13. Bunker pad-roll floor
Individual optional equipment
Where cleaning requirements are minimal, the rotating finger comb (UFK) can be replaced with triple deflector rollers and the haulm conveyor can be left out. This not only saves weight and costs, but also increases throughput. These options are available as modules for retrofit if required. The option of conversion is taken into account from the start of the design process.
The same applies for the machine with four pintle belts. This machine can be optionally designed without trash and discharge conveyor and fitted with deflector rollers instead of the UFK.
Very high output with maximum product protection
During last year's field tests, the overall design demonstrated very high output with maximum product protection in areas with low cleaning requirements (sandy or separated soils). Without the cleaning units (pintle 1 and pintle 2), the machine is even more open, accessible and easier to service than the previous Keiler II.
