Applicators for Kubota Round Balers
2023 - Selection Guide
(Applicator Part Numbers)
Hay preservative can be used to bale large round bales between 16% and 30% moisture. The kit is available with a 25-gallon tank which mounts on 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, an electronic system, or an economical manual control system.
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.
All applicators come as complete kits designed to fit your specific baler, and consist of:
- 25 Gallon Tank
- 12 volt pumping system
- All plumbing and wiring supplied
- Your choice of control options

300 Series Automatic Control System
The 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.
