The ROPA Tiger 6, the most powerful sugar beet harvester in the world, is powered by a 16-liter Volvo Penta engine. Although the harvesting season for sugar beets may be short, it is super intensive. Between September and November, weather permitting, harvesting machines operate up to 24 hours a day. Any delays during this time can result in spoiled produce and a loss of business.

“In terms of reliability, our machines are the best on the market,” says Michael Gruber, head of technology at ROPA. “Because of the customer service we provide, standstill times are shorter, and this is essential if the machine is to be profitable for our customer.” “Our goal is to have engines in our machines that can operate between 13,000 and 15,000 hours without major repairs,” says Gruber. “In addition, we need customer support in all the countries where we deliver. If an engine is not working because of a lack of spare parts or service technicians, then for the customer the entire machine is bad.”

When ROPA began using two of Volvo Penta’s 16-liter engines in its Tiger 6 and Panther 2 models – its premier sugar beet harvesters, key reasons for the selection were the engines’ reliability and good fuel efficiency. But it was also important to ROPA to be able to access help easily from Volvo Penta at its production plant, and for its customers to be able get their machines serviced conveniently anywhere in the world from the Volvo Penta Global Dealer Network. Watch More >
