CTM imports Euro Tiger

CTM Harpley Engineering is to become the UK importer for the German-built Ropa sugar beet harvesters and cleaner loaders.

First seen in the UK at last years Beet UK event the giant six-row, 490hp Euro Tiger harvester, with its triple axles and 29t capacity impressed most visitors with its work rate.

More in line with Harpleys existing business is Ropas Euro Maus cleaner loader which, in line with the size of the harvester, has a loading rate of 25t in less than eight minutes.

Harpleys Nigel Mountain says he will have a harvester working in the UK next season. "The Euro Tiger is proven throughout Continental Europe and we believe it can take on the competition and win." &#42
