RK 1

The ROPA Keiler 1 is a one-row trailed potato havester with a 6 t bunker. The Keiler 1 has been specifically designed for customers with increased demands for the highest quality (ware potato) and, at the same time, thorough and extremely gentle cleaning and excellent haulm separation. The load-sensing hydraulics enable fully hydraulic adjustment of the speed of all cleaning components, particularly sieving conveyors and leaf chain.


  • Fully hydraulic drive of the complete harvester, thus extremely low vibration and noise-reducing
  • All cleaning devices maintain their optimal speed independently of PTO speed
  • Reduced fuel consumption with reduced tractor engine speed

Practical details and unique features

  • Improved pickup with integrated diablo roller steering
  • ROPA quick-change system as standard
  • Hydraulically driven coulter driven (optional)

  • Pre-separation with hydraulically driven and steplessly speed-adjustable twin deflector rollers

  • The height and speed of the circulating finger comb (UFK) are steplessly adjustable from both sides

  • Grader rollers (optional), steplessly adjustable from 25 up to 40 mm

  • Generously sized picking table

  • Perfectly positioned bunker filling conveyor for careful and optimal filling of the bunker


Large volume bunker with 6 t capacity,

Bunker front articulation part (optional)

convenient truck loading even on high trailers

Tray filler (optional)



The controls and the touch terminal for the Keiler 1 can be ergonomically integrated in any tractor cabin. ROPA Keilers are compatible with every ISOBUS terminal

Keiler operating unit “Basic”

Keiler operating unit “Plus” (optional)

Keiler operating unit “Premium” (optional)


Additional attachments for the fully hydraulic drive enable the user to save user-defined machine settings for adjustment to specific field conditions or when switching between ware potatoes and starch potatoes. The optional automatic sieve conveyor controls the cleaning elements based on speed. A minimum and maximum speed can be set and the ratio between minimum and maximum can be adjusted. The intelligent automatic overload system is derived from the Tiger sugar beet harvester and reliably prevents the potato harvester from overrunning. The AUX-N function allows harvesting functions to be actuated with the tractor joystick or by additional controls. The Basic task controller records the field documentation for output to the field file in the ISO-XML file format.

Wizard systems – additional attachments of the fully hydraulic drive

Harvesting programs can be saved with wizard systems

  • six programming buttons for fast saving and calling various machine settings
  • individually configurable and can be saved with names
  • ideal for repeating harvesting conditions or when switching from ware potatoes to starch potatoes

Automatic sieve conveyor wizard system

  • sieve conveyor is actuated depending on travel speed
  • minimum and maximum speed of sieve conveyor are preset
  • ratio between sieve conveyor speed and travel speed is adjustable

Automatic overload wizard system

  • if a blockage occurs the upstream cleaning units are automatically shut off
  • this prevents overrunning or damage due to overloading the harvester

Extended ISOBUS functions

Auxiliary control (AUX-N):

  • defined machine functions can be actuated with additional controls
  • additional controls can include external ISOBUS joysticks, buttons from the AUX, tractor joystick, etc.
  • Control functions can be assigned as desired

Basic task controller for ISOBUS order processing

  • Documentation of total values: area (ha), distance (km) and time (h),…
  • Data exchange between field file and task controller in ISO-XML file format
  • Orders can imported to the task controller
  • completed documentation can be easily exported

Agitator (optional)
in the pickup for better separation of haulm and potato

Trash management
all trash separation options can be selected variably

Trash return conveyor (optional)

Stone collecting tank (optional)
with hydraulically driven discharge conveyor
