Excerpt not working

I just upgrading a Kirby 1 site to kirby 3. Everything works fine but not the excerpt helper.
I tested it with valet nginx and with mampp. Is there something I might have overlooked?

<?php echo $article->excerpt(285) ?> // shows nothing

<?php echo $article->text() ?> // shows the text

thanks for help

You forgot the field name:

<?php echo $article->text()->excerpt(285) ?>
