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.
