Harvest Tec Modular system to suit any John Deere Large Square Baler

600 series is a complete application system for John Deere large square balers.  Accurate moisture monitoring, applying Baler’s Choice preservative to add up to 30% more baler output, offering complete traceability from field to end user.  The John Deere baler range with Harvest Tec equipment will require either an ISOBUS connection on the tractor or utilise an iPad or iPad Mini


Where ISOBUS is not available or not required the unit can be controlled by your iPad via the Bluetooth antenna


Harvest Tec Moisture Pro is a fully integrated moisture system and all HayBoss modules can be added via plug & play


Harvest Tec Automatic Applicatorutilise the accurate moisture readings and balers’ sensors to monitor baler output and adjust the amount Baler’s Choice applied. With change in moisture or baling speed the Harvest Tec will adjust the system to within 0.1 litre per tonne.  If the baler does not have a weigh scale or electronic bale length as an option then the operator will enter these figures and the Harvest Tec calculates baler output.  When turning on headlands crops eyes will automatically pause the applicator so no preservative is wasted.  


Harvest Tec Wet Bale Marker will spray a red food grade colour mark onto the portion of the bale which has exceeded the operators alarm point.  The alarm point is set according to the operators preference.  The bales with red marks are easily identified and can be stacked separately from the bales which are within the operators parameters.  Managing the bale quality with moisture parameters is simple but effective using the Bale Marker.


Harvest Tec Tagger provides crop inventory control and traceability from field to end user.  Bales can be traced from the field to stack and to the end user. Using a GPS antenna the location of where the bale was produced is recorded along with moisture, weight, unique bale ID, date and time.  Scanning the bales can be done with a hand scanner, loader mounted or a drive through portal scanner.  The portal scanner will record the entire load as it is driven through the portal frame. (Tagger currently not available in the EU region)
