The all-new system integrates seamlessly with the tractor’s PLM™ Precision Land Management display and the baler’s electronic controller for highly precise and efficient application of hay preservative. This can be done without a separate monitor in the cab, reducing the number of harnesses and cab clutter.

How It Works

The new 600 Series Automatic Applicator system accurately senses moisture on the go and adjusts the application of preservative every three seconds to match the condition of the hay. This allows producers to preserve product by applying the exact amount of preservative that’s needed to keep the crop in great condition.

The application system uses sensors that directly interact with the baler and tractor to determine hay moisture content, speed of baling (tonnage), how much preservative is being applied and total tons baled. This information is displayed through the Intelliview 3 or Intelliview 4 monitor in your tractor or any other ISOBUS-ready display.

Additional Features

The system also has the capacity for add-on features such as New Holland CropID™ bale taggers, dye sprayers, bale weight information and GPS yield mapping.

The system can store up to 300 job records by field, including the date and time of baling, number of tons baled, product used and overall moisture levels. Within those job records, the system also can store up to 33,000 individual bale records. Records can be downloaded via a USB port for easy and efficient access to crucial bale data.
