The 2178 Baler Moisture Tester Plus has advanced dual-sensor technology for greater overall accuracy while baling hay with square or round balers. The Baler Moisture Tester Plus 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. Check out our Digital Hay Moisture Probe or our Advanced Hay, Straw and Silage Digital Tester.
