The system monitors hay moisture with two star wheel sensors at the bale chamber entrance. The sensors use conductivity to read levels through the entire bale from 5 to 70 percent, and provide the most accurate measurement in the industry.
A choice of monitors
Baler operators can observe the continually changing moisture levels on their choice of monitoring device…viewing on the Harvest Tec virtual display, an Android™ or Apple® tablet, or with most baler monitors. Information displayed includes current moisture levels, the reading of the last bale, amount of preservative being applied as well as the target rate, the average amount of preservative used and the total amount for the job being done. It also shows the current baling rate and the number of bales made. Job records contain additional information including the average moisture for the field and the total tonnage baled.
The new 700 Preservative Applicator can make higher quality feed for the cattleman and dairyman, and make bales with greater monetary value for producers who market their hay.
