Fully hydraulic drive
The fully hydraulic drive the speed of all cleaning units to be controlled
automatically. The load-sensing hydraulics ensure that all cleaning units are
supplied with the maximum oil volume from a PTO speed of 650 rpm. In order to
adapt to different harvesting conditions the cleaning elements can be controlled
individually regardless of the engine speed from minimum to maximum speed
- no need to press the accelerator pedal. If the full oil amount is not required,
the PTO as well as the engine speed can be reduced further. The resulting fuel
consumption efficiency is a major advantage compared to traditional drive
concepts. Individually configurable lifting programs that can be saved simplify
manual or automatic adjustment for different harvesting conditions for the
Unique drive concept
■The speed of the sieve conveyors can be adjusted independently of the
speed of the leaf chain
■All cleaning units maintain their optimal speed independently of the
PTO speed
■The speed of the leaf chain can be reduced to 20% of the sieve
conveyor speed
■A continuous pressure monitor prevents overrunning the lifter
■Mechanical slip clutch not necessary – significantly improved power
■Soft start of all belts and cleaning units
■No chains, belts and tensioners – no adjustment, fewer wear parts,
increased operational reliability
■Only one articulated shaft, which means fewer lubrication points
■Significantly reduced noise level, more comfortable working with the
■Save fuel with reduced engine speed
■Many settings can be made directly on the terminal at the sorting
■Fast and convenient adjustment of the machine for variable harvesting
■Fully hydraulic drive of the complete harvester, thus extremely low
vibration and reduced noise
Pickup control - fully automatic ROPA ridge pressure regulation
■ Standard ridge pressure relief and ridge pressure control combined with hydraulic lifting depth adjustment
■ Adjustment while driving - conveniently from the tractor cabin
■ Depth guide and ridge pressure relief adjustable for every row
■ Single row pickup available – particularly useful for lifting through­­­­
■ Optional range of different lifter shares (one-blade, two-blade, centre-blade)
■ Optional different ridge rollers (flat, deep)
■ Optional stone protection for lifter shares
Additional disc coulter (optional)
The additional disc coulter cuts through even large amounts of haulm for harvesting without blockages
Hydraulically driven disc coulter (optional)
The hydraulically driven disc coulter guarantees clean and efficient harvesting without blockages. The speed is controlled
manually or automatically depending on the driving speed - optionally synchronously or leading.
Standard ROPA quick-change system Top efficiency with short setup times
ROPA has designed a practical new quick-change system for switching
between row pickup and swath pickup. The Keiler 2 can be switched from
potato harvesting to onion harvesting in just a few minutes. The reverse is
the same. One person can perform the complete coupling process easily and
without requiring special tools. A practical solution for potato farmers who
also grow onions and red beets who may need to change their pickup system
several times a day.
■ Faster and easier change of pickup
■ The driver can do the change alone without requiring assistance from
other persons
■ Specialized tools or forklift not required
■ Conversion can be done in the field
■ Attachment of the pickup offers the best accessibility for fast and easy
change of sieve conveyors – switch to different pitch
■ Cover belt and sieve conveyor can run synchronously
about 10 minutes
Generously measured cleaning elements,
ideally matched
■ Large sieve conveyors with variably adjustable shaker (standard)
■ Two transfer stages for removal of large amounts of foreign matter

Generously measured cleaning elements, longer cleaning distance
for gentle and efficient separation and cleaning
The ROPA Keiler has large cleaning components with maximum cleaning area for gentle and efficient cleaning. The ROPA Keiler
is particularly efficient for harvesting on heavy soils and/or during bad weather.
Root protection
Adjustments that can be individually and easily changed ensure high
throughput with increased cleaning performance. The ratio of the speed
of the leaf chain can be adjusted steplessly and conveniently from the
driver's seat. The electrically height-adjustable rotating finger comb
(UFK) and numerous additional adjustment options form the basis for
efficient and gentle cleaning of potatoes.
Truck loading
The Keiler 2 has an unloading control system as standard equipment. A hydraulically operated front bunker articulation part and
a tray filler with rubber baffles are optionally available.

Drive axle
Comfortable and powerful for extreme harvesting conditions
Movement and maneuvering made easy! The ROPA Keiler 2 can be equipped with an optional
drive axle for increased traction and soil protection even under extremely difficult harvesting
conditions. Even with this optional equipment with high-volume tyres
850/50 R 30.5 the road transport width is just 3.00 meters.
The integrated freewheel of the axle enables a speed of up to 40 km/h when driving on the road.
A maximum torque up to 14,500 Nm can be achieved at the wheel for a thrust of 2 tons. Coupling
and uncoupling while driving is possible at any time. The maximum speed with a coupled drive
axle is up to 14 km/h.
The new and practical automatic operation from tractors with ISOBUS is a convenient and elegant
solution. The drive axle is automatically actuated in the applicable direction of travel during startup and controlled synchronously, then switched off again at a standstill. A significant advantage,
because it is not necessary to switch, stop or switch the drive axle to reverse separately while
moving or starting.
The maximum power consumption in boost operation is 65 kW.
Despite the large-volume 850/50 R30.5 tyres, the steering angle is identical to the original axle
and amounts to +/- 21 degrees.

Telescopic axle:
The stability of the potato harvester is maintained
with a telescopic axle, so that the machine’s outer
track does not exceed 3,000 mm for transportation
and lifting through. For lifting the axle can be
widened up to 3,500 mm.
The drive is 100% hydraulic. All sieve conveyors
and cleaning units can be adjusted steplessly and
independently of the PTO rotational speed. The
driving speed or harvester’s rotational speed remain
constant as long as the tractor PTO shaft provides
min. 650 rpm.
The pickup unit is equipped with a ROPA quickchange system. The row width can be selected
from 750 mm up to 900 mm. The two or four disc
coulters (depending on options) are steplessly
adjustable to the distance between them. The
ridge pickup operates with two ridge rollers, which
can be different designs. Two haulm intake rollers
ensure smooth leaf transport. The outer disc coulter
in the right direction of travel can be optionally
hydraulically driven, an additional disc coulter is
optionally available.
