Our greatest interest within crop farming is to grow sugarbeets, that's why we want to write about something new in this sector. We heard that a new concept had come to Sweden so we wanted to find out everything about this machine. This new technique was a self-propelled cleaning loader for sugarbeets. This machine is supposed to replace a loader and a cleaning machine when the sugarbeets is going to be loaded, cleaned and delivered to the sugerbeet factory. The cleaning loader picks up the sugarbeets with rollers from the pile, which is placed close to the road. The machine cleans with steel rollers and loads the sugarbeets into the truck with a conveyor, which is able to turn around both sides of the machine. We have done some field studies that includes some experiments and observations. In the experiment we have come to a result concerning the loss of sugarbeets behind the machine. We have been following the Ropa Maus for about five days during the campaign 2003, so that we have a clue about how this machine works in reality. We put together some questions that we distributed to the growers, truck drivers and the driver of the cleaning loader to gather some information from all the involved parts. To get the whole economical aspect have we done some calculations of the costs on both the cleaning loader and the cleaning machine with a loader. After that we got information about the price of loading and cleaning, we could come to a final result. To be able to invest in a self-propelled cleaning loader you need to have 60 000 ton of sugarbeets to make a profit. This is a result of ours calculations and diagrams. The loss after Ropa Maus cleaning loader was 1.076 % after our own trial. A good thing about Ropa Maus cleaning loader is that the pressure on the soil, where the pile of sugarbeets have been located, is further less than loading with cleaning machine and a loader.
