The new 2178 has advanced multi-sensor technology for greater overall accuracy while baling hay with square or round balers. The 2178 mounts in the cab of the tractor and provides a direct readout for % moisture while baling hay. Having multiple moisture content readings during each step of the haymaking process is critical to finishing with a high quality product.
Due to the many variables associated with hay moisture measurements an occasional “spot check” using a handheld probe on finished bales is recommended. (Farmscan AG 2188 Digital Hay Probe)
