ROPA Keiler 2 Classic

ROPA Keiler 2 Classic with 2 pintle belts

The machine is generally similar to the well-known Keiler 2. They mostly can be distinguished due to the separating systems, as Keiler 2 Classic has two pintle belts. The very spacious sorting stand has ample space for up to eight persons at the gently rising and generously dimensioned sorting belt with optional haulm conveyor. With the extendable platform in addition to the haulm conveyor the machine makes a convenient workplace for the sorters. Paired with the height-adjustable platforms this allows every workstation to be separately adjusted for maximum ease of working.

 

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 Keiler II 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 mit serienmässigen XL Bunker

Der Kartoffelroder Keiler 2 Classic mit zwei Trennaggregaten und großem Verlesestand ist bei Kartoffelanbauern seit seiner Markteinführung sehr gut angekommen. ROPA hat zur diesjährigen Erntesaison den Keiler 2 Classic testweise mit XL Bunker ausgerüstet und verbaut diesen zur Saison 2021 standardmäßig. Dies ermöglicht es Landwirten, die Maschine bei höchster Kartoffelschonung bestmöglich auszulasten. Ebenso stehen zur Erntesaison 2021 weitere neue Funktionen in Serie und optional zur Verfügung.

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.

Individual optional equipment

Keiler 2 Classic with UFK, haulm conveyor and grader rollers

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 can save money and weight. 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 fitted with deflector rollers instead of the UFK and without haulm and discharge conveyor.

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.
