AGCO Microwave Moisture System

Microwave Moisture Sensors for AGCO Large Square Balers

Introducing the Microwave Moisture Sensor option for AGCO balers. An add-on kit that can give you more precision than ever before with the ability to read crop moisture with on-board microwave sensors. 

These accurate microwave sensors can be used one of two ways, depending on your operation.


For use with the Dew Point Steamer

  • Mounted on the back of the bale chamber
  • Accurately senses changes in artificial moisture
  • Individual bale information recorded – time/date, average and high moisture, bale weight, RFV/TDN, GPS position
  • Export bale information to iPad via Hay App
  • Displays through baler ISOBUS or iPad
  • Available for any large square balers equipped with Staheli Dew Point Steamer
  • Select either microwave (when steaming) or star wheels (for applying preservative)

Microwave sensors located on the bale chute

Kits Include:

  • 2 Microwave Sensors 
  • Mounting brackets for back of chamber
  • 25′ power/communication harness

Microwave Moisture Chute Upgrade Kit                                      HT701MWM


For use with Preservative Applicators

  • Mounted in the pre-compression chamber, closer to the pickup where preservative is applied
  • Accurately reads moisture across individual flakes through the pre-compression chamber eliminating lag time
  • Available for all AGCO large square balers
  • Upgrade option to all 600 series applicators
  • Moisture displayed through the baler ISOBUS or iPad
  • Select either microwave or star wheels moisture sensor input
  • Reads crop moisture accurately up to 70%

Microwave sensors located in pre-compression chamber

Kits Include:

  • 2 Microwave Sensors 
  • Power/communication harness
