H2O  Precision Moisture Sensor and New Wet  Bale Marker for Round Balers

Low cost entry into Precision Moisture meter and Wet Bale Dye marker for round balers reading 6-60% within  -/+ 1% accuracy and will utilise an iPhone, Android phone or tablet as it's monitor 


H2O Precision Moisture Sensor & Wet Bale Dye Marker

Round Baler Moisture Disc

Harvest Tec  Precision moisture measurement systems are the core component allowing the owner to both maximise the output of their baler, but also the quality of the bale they produce


These systems are available for round, conventional and square balers

H2O Precision Moisture Sensor

300 series Moisture Monitor

600 series Moisture Pro


Our precision moisture meters use either electrical conductivity (round, conventional and large square) or microwaves (large square option) taking measurements many times per second

They measure not only the area of the bale in contact with the sensor, but also through the profile of the bale as it is produced by the baler. They measure both leaf moisture and moisture locked deep inside the plant stems that is often invisible to hand probes and inferior pad type moisture systems

These systems give the operator real time information as they bale, thus helping to improve bale quality and baling when the conditions are suitable. When conditions are not ideal they provide consistently accurate information to our automatic applicators, which allow for maximum baler output by increasing the operating window and reducing cost with longer day time baling and maximising efficiency.


McHale 300 Series Automatic Application Systems for Round Balers Model PFC-3494526CX:

300 Series 3494526CX Automatic Modular Applicator system suitable for round and conventional balers


300 series automatic contol

As with all our Automatic Applicators, the 300 Series relies on highly accurate sensing discs on either side of the round bale chamber.

Instant response:  The 300 Series Automatic Applicator features an improved flowmeter working through a single bypass pump, which supplies a constant pressure to a pulsating solenoid valve. This is capable of covering a wide range of application rates, but also provides improved response to variations in moisture and an instant on/off. This has the added benefit of being simple to service and operate. It comes as standard with a Bluetooth receiver to enable the system to be controlled using either an iPad or iPad Mini (not supplied) 

300 Series Moisture Monitor:

The McHale 300 Series Moisture Monitor is ideal for operators of round and conventional balers who want a straight-forward precision moisture monitor.
The moisture sensors are accurate to within 1% and take readings nine times a second, which are averaged every three seconds.
Moisture range round balers: 8-60%. 
The 300 Series offers a premium specification for ease of use and simplicity.
It comes as standard with a Bluetooth receiver to enable the system to be controlled using either an iPad or iPad Mini (not supplied)


H2O  Precision Moisture Sensor and New Wet  Bale Marker for Round Balers

The McHale H2O Precision Moisture Meter is a low cost Moisture only system and is operated by an iPad, IPhone or Android Phone, twin sensor disc measure the moisture from side to side from 8% to 60% moisture. It is effective with precision moisture reading for all variable and fixed chamber balers. 

H2O Wet Bale Marker   

The H2O now has the additional feature option to mark wet bales with a food colour red or blue dye at moistures set on the alarm setting by the operator.  H2O Precision Moisture Meter is the only accurate system available for round and conventional balers.

The latest Harvest Tec 600 series 6494526BX applicators for round balers


600 & 300 series Applicator Control


Moisture Pro:

Moisture Pro is a Moisture monitoring system that will measure the moisture in the bale from 8-60%.  The Moisture Pro is readily able to accept any of the following Harvest Tec modules depending on your individual requirements. Job records are fully downloadable with Moisture Pro.  


McHale Automatic  Applicator Model PFC6494526BX:

The high precision Harvest Tec Applicator can be ordered as a complete unit with moisture meter included. Adding the applicator module to your moisture meter allows you to automatically apply the correct amount of Baler’s Choice preservative on those higher moisture bales. The system will not only keep track of the moisture levels of the bales, but will also display and record the amount of preservative being applied and also how much was used per individual bale. The harvest Tec applicator is automatically paused, using sensors on the pickup, when no crop is entering the baler.

Harvest Tec High Output Electronic Manual Applicator Systems for round balers

This is a manually operated system for silage inoculants and acid additives. The rate is manually controlled and so is designed for fixed rate application of silage and haylage products.

Application of inoculants and acids

The new Electronic Manual High Output applicator is ideally suited for use with modern, high output fixed and variable chamber round balers and large square balers

Applies a constant rate as set by the operator

Application rate can be adjusted by selecting different nozzles and pressure

Moisture readings determined using either a hand held probe or ideally for optimum efficiency a 600 Series or 300 Series moisture monitor system

Ideal for applying fixed rates of silage preservative or inoculant

Upgrades available to apply premium buffered propionic acid for hay and straw
