Rockstar 2 new improvements see it racing ahead in the field.




Following the changing and difficult soil conditions in the past couple of years, it was apparent that upgrades were needed to put the CTM Rockstar back ahead of the game, which was the challenge taken up by the CTM design team headed up by Andy Mountain. Designed improvements concentrated on the soil intake and a new design share bar with an increased digging depth of a further 90mm, given claims from the operators of over 75% improvement. This, together with new side outerwear plates and significantly increased side clearance, has prevented any disturbance of existing stones & debris already separated from being moved. In turn, these changes to the Rockstar have provided maximum graded soil produced within an improved consistent depth of the bed.

This is all part of CTM’s ability as a small and local Norfolk Manufacturer to react quickly and improve its range of machinery to suit customers’ expectations.

Rockstar De-Stoner / Separator Instructional Videos

Using new machinery will always be a challenge.

We know that the new machinery will be easier to use, better for business and have improved capabilities. However, that doesn’t always mean the new machinery will come without new things to learn.

Here at CTM Root Crop Systems, we speak to lots of customers that have purchased a new Rockstar De-Stoner / Separator machine from us. They are excited to get it out on the field and use it and are quickly impressed with what it can do.

Then you need to park the Rockstar De-Stoner / Separator, or you want to put it into the transport or road position, and can’t remember how to do it don’t panic.
Of course, you are always welcome to phone us, and we can talk you through the process over the phone. However, many of our customers learn how to use the Rockstar De-Stoner / Separator by seeing it and doing it themselves.

This is why we have created a series of videos that can be found on YouTube. These are Rockstar De-Stoner / Separator instructional videos and troubleshooting guides. Each video is around 1 to 2 minutes in length and helps with the most common questions that we are asked about.

The Rockstar De-Stoner / Separator instructional videos that you can find on YouTube include the following;
• How to detach the machinery from your tractor
• How to enter the services page
• How to operate various functions from field mode
• How to put the machinery into transport or road position
• How to steer the machinery in transport/road position

If you are using your Rockstar De-Stoner / Separator in the field and you’re not sure how to get onto a specific function, or you’ve forgotten how to view the services then pop onto YouTube. All our Rockstar De-Stoner / Separator instructional videos are clearly laid out and easy to understand.
Our YouTube channel is often updated with new videos so keep an eye on the page for latest videos to answer your questions;

Norfolk farms Change to The Ropa Panther 2

Two Norfolk farms growing more than 800ha of sugar beet between
them have swapped harvester brands after almost 20 years loyal to a
previous manufacturer.Norfolk farms Demo the The Panther 2

Harry said that with CTM based just
a few miles away it made sense to consider the brand, but that excellent
back-up from the dealer for the farms’ four CTM-manufactured cleaner
loaders experienced over many years was also a factor.
“The demonstration allowed comparison of our previous machine
with an equivalent model from the Ropa range in the same  eld and it was
quickly obvious that we could increase output but use signicantly less fuel,” he explained……
The farms’ latest acquisition is a brand new Ropa Panther 2, supplied by sole importer CTM Harpley Engineering Ltd, and is the  first of its type to be delivered in the UK. Read the full article here Read More…..

CTM ‘beets’ the rest at the Royal Norfolk Show

“Winning the best trade stand award at the Royal Norfolk Show was the icing on the cake!” said Nigel Mountain, Sales Director of CTM Root Crop Systems.

Exhibiting for over 50 years at Norfolk’s premier agricultural event had finally paid off for CTM, the sugar beet industry’s leading manufacturer and importer of beet harvester and cleaner loaders. The stand also featured their latest ‘Rockstar2‘ de-stoner separator for potato growers.

The Trade Stand award was awarded to the Best overall stand in the Show and was awarded for the most effective and well laid out exhibit, coupled with excellent customer service.


“We build high performance CTM machinery for British agriculture and complement this with the world’s top selling beet harvesters and self-propelled cleaner loaders from ROPA in Germany” explains Nigel.  “Consequently we see the Royal Norfolk Show as a great opportunity to catch up with our loyal customers and friends, not just as an important shop window for our machines.”

CTM also had ROPA Tiger 6 and a Maus 5 loader on the British Sugar Stand.  This was the first year for British Sugar at The Royal Norfolk Show with the objective to show the general public the origins of home grown sugar in the UK. They could also to meet, discuss and entertain with growers and contractors to ensure the continued supply of sugar beet from East Anglia.
