Applicators for Large Square Balers

img_5478The 600 Series Automatic Applicator system is now compatible with baler and tractor ISOBUS systems. By running through the baler monitor, the system is more efficient and easier to install and operate. The 600 Automatic Applicator still retains all its functions such as sensing moisture and tonnage on the go, and adjusts the preservative application rate based on the condition of the hay. This precision gives the operator the exact amount of preservative required to keep the crop in great condition without wasting product. The display in the cab gives the operator complete control and provides information on:

  • Moisture content
  • Speed of baling (tonnage)
  • Volume of preservative used per bale
  • Total tons baled

The 600 Series Automatic Applicator is compatible with the new Bale Indentification System, or Tagger, that attaches a tag carrying all the information on that specific bale to the bale itself.

Electronic control systems are also available for large square balers. Equipped with a high-capacity 115-gallon tank mounted on the rear of the baler, the operator can go almost non-stop.

Moisture Sensors for Large Square Balers

Automatic systems for large square balers are equipped with two star wheel moisture sensors mounted on the top of the bale chute, sensing moisture across the width of the bale via conductivity. The sensors can accurately read crop moisture from 8% to 70%, covering a wide range of moisture levels. As the star wheels turn, they also calculate tonnage, helping the system apply preservative even more accurately

Applicators for Round Balers

jd_round1 JD 8 55Hay preservative can be used to bale large round bales between 16% and 30% moisture. You have the option of a 25-gallon or, on certain models, a 55-gallon application system. The system mounts to the tongue of the baler and holds enough preservative to treat 30 to 60 tons of hay. Depending on your need, choose the new 300 series automatic system, a 600 series commercial automatic system, an electronic system, or an economical manual control system (available in 25-gallon only).

Moisture Sensors for Round Balers

Automatic systems for round balers are equipped with two moisture sensing discs, one mounted on each of the baler side walls, sensing moisture across the width of the bale via conductivity. The sensors can accurately read crop moisture from 8% to 60%, covering a wide range of moisture levels.

600 Series Automatic Control System

Large Square Balers
JD-Monitor_new

The 600 Automatic Applicator control system is the premier applicator for large square balers. The 600 system accurately senses moisture on-the-go and adjusts the application of preservative every three seconds to match the condition of the hay. This precision gives the operator the exact amount of product required to keep the crop in great condition, without wasting product. The all new 600 automatic system for large square balers can be controlled through the baler ISOBUS display or iPad, giving complete control to the operator more efficiently as ever without the need for a separate monitor in the cab. The display shows moisture content, speed of baling, and how much preservative is being applied. This control adjusts application rate every three seconds to attain the target rate.

A simple push on the Main Menu key pulls up a selection of other screens including the adjustable settings and a Job Record screen. The system stores up to 300 job records by field, including date and time of baling, number of tons baled, product used and the average moisture and high moisture. The system will also store up to 33,000 individual bale records within those job records, and all of the job records can be exported to the iPad, or downloaded and printed via a USB port on the processor for easy and efficient access to crucial bale information.

Round and Small Square Balers

The 600 Automatic Applicator is the choice of applicator for the round or small square operator that makes hay commercially or is looking for the added performance and capabilities of the 600 system. On small square balers, the 600 system reads the moisture and tonnage with two star wheel sensors, and also has a stroke counter that records the number of strokes per bale, and an end of bale sensor, to record individual bale information like the large square system does. 

The 600 system on round balers reads moisture with two discs in the bale chamber up to 70% moisture, and also has a sensor on the bale door to record individual bale records. Both systems have the ability to store and download job and individual bale records via USB and export via iPad.

 

300 Series Automatic Control System

Round and Small Square Balers

HTThe 300 series automatic control system is a more compact and efficient applicator that accurately senses moisture on the go and adjusts the application of preservative to match the condition of the hay. This precision give the operator the exact amount of product required to keep their crop in great condition, without wasting product. The 300 Series applicator is controlled with an iPad* through a Bluetooth receiver, eliminating harnesses in the cab.

New improvements to the 300 Series Automatic Applicator include:

  • Single constant-pressure pump with pulsing solenoid that reacts quickly to changes in application rates
  • Improved flowmeter that works on a range of products
  • Smaller and more compact system that is easier to install and maintain

The applicator takes moisture and baling rate information from the two star wheel sensors on small square balers, and two moisture discs in the bale chamber on round balers, and the system will automatically apply the correct amount of product. The moisture, tonnage, and rates are all displayed on the screen, along with the volume used. A simple push of any Main Menu key pulls up a selection of other screens including adjustable settings and a Job Records screen. The system stores 63 jobs by date and time, number of tons baled, product used, and high and average moisture.

electric_controlsThe electronic cab control is a solid state electronic pump control used for large round and large square balers. The control is mounted in the cab or on the fender. Application rate is quickly and easily adjusted from the operator s seat. Once set, the electronic control will hold the application rate constant. This unit is included with all 25-and 55-gallon applicators with electronic control. It is also included with 100-gallon applicators with electronic control for large square balers.

 


Manual Control Systems

The manual pressure regulator provides full-rate adjustment at the applicator, which is controlled on the baler. This economical control is available for 25-gallon applicators only. *There is no regulation control in the cab of the tractor with this unit.
