The Harvest Tec automatic applicator is a self contained unit for all large square balers using inbuilt sensors to monitor the balers performance. The applicator system monitors the crop changes to apply product at a fixed rate or variable rate per tonne. The balers performance is continually monitored and the applicator reacts to any changes in output. The information is displayed directly onto the tractors ISOBUS terminal or via the Hay App on an iPad
The automatic applicator comes as a complete package, and includes twin star wheel moisture sensors, 200 – 420 litre tank options, high output spray bar with up to 9 nozzles infra red crop detection at the baler pick-up, digital flow meter and 3 variable rate pumps.
Based on the parameters of bale weight, length, time per bale and accurate on the move moisture sensing the applicator will automatically stop, start and adjust application rate without any operator interaction
The pumps are variable rate and will run in combination as required to apply liquid based on the balers performance and moisture readings. As crops flow or moisture changes the application will adjust automatically by changing the pumps that are running and the flow of each individual pump.
The automatic applicator can be upgraded with bale management systems or Alfalfa (Lucern) feed analysis
