Harvest Tec equipment for John Deere has proved its commitment to the European farmer, supplying equipment to not only enhance their baler range, but also dedicated themselves to the process of quality hay and straw production, now with either ISOBUS or IPad control via Bluetooth
The bale marker is a simple but effective system to mark high moisture flakes. The operator can set the preferred alarm point and when the crop being baled reaches this level of moisture the flakes are sprayed with the red food grade colour. Only the areas of the bale that are above the alarm point will be marked. The bale marker will work from the 600 series moisture pro and applicator on all large square and conventional balers.
The operator can then keep these bales separate from the rest of the bales that are within the preferred moisture range. When baling dry straw or hay the normal safe limit is 15% moisture, so the operator would set the alarm at 16% so that these bales can be separated. When using the Baler’s Choice preservative baling safely up to 27% with a large square and 30% with a conventional baler, the alarm point would be changed to meet the safe baling parameters.
