Harvest Tec 600 series Commercial Automatic Applicator
The Harvest Tec 600 series automatic applicators are built and designed for the professional farmer, contractor or specialist hay producer and will accurately apply Baler's Choice Preservative onto hay and straw with moisture contents up to 30% and prevent heating and mould growth
The Harvest Tec applicator will cope with the high output and demand of the professional large scale farmer, specialist hay producer and farm contractor using a conventional small square baler with baling speeds up to 36 tonnes per hour. The Harvest Tec system enabling you to precisely apply Baler's Choice Preservative at rates of between 1.9 and 7.4 litres per tonne depending upon moisture content, which is accurately recorded from 8% to 32% within 1 percentage point of accuracy
In addition to the above features the 600 series is equipped with extra sensors for increased accuracy, along with job records that can be downloaded to the user’s computer. The system can operate the Bale Marker system which would allow the user to automatically mark a bale that is out of the preferred moisture range.
Harvest Tec Commercial 600 series use an accurate star wheel system, combined with a baling rate sensor to monitor the balers output. As baling speeds and moisture change the Harvest Tec applicator will continually monitor and adjust the application of Baler's Choice
Bale Marker - Wet Bale Management
The Bale Marker is the easy and cost effective method to mark the bales that have high moisture spots. The Bale Marker can be linked directly into Moisture Pro system. The Bale Marker will spray a red food grade colour onto the bale flakes that have moisture readings above the alarm point. Marking high moisture bales allows the operator to store only bales within their preferred moisture range into the stack. All the marked bales can be stored separately as the quality of these high moisture bales will be reduced and so they will dry out and not damage surrounding bales that are within the operators preferred range.

As with all our Automatic Applicators, the 300 Series relies on highly accurate Star Wheels on conventional balers on both sides of the 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 moisture and an instant on/off. This has the added benefit of being simple to service and operate

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 pad in the chamber, ideally for optimum efficiency a 600 Series or 300 Series moisture monitor system
Ideal for applying fixed rates of hay, haylage and silage preservative or inoculant
Upgrades available to apply premium buffered propionic acid for hay and straw
