Deere Introduces GT-30300 Hand-held Moisture Tester

Deere Introduces GT-30300 Hand-held Moisture Tester

Device checks moisture levels and test weights of 20 different grains

John Deere this week introduced the GT-30300 Grain Moisture Tester, featuring a hand-held design for monitoring grain condition at harvest and in storage.

The new device provides direct readout of moisture and test weight for 20 different grains in seconds, without pre-weighing the samples, the company says.

According to Barry Deiters, product manager with John Deere Merchandise, the tester measures the moisture of harvested or stored grain from 5% to 45% with repeatable accuracy to plus or minus 0.2% and test weights with repeatable accuracy of 0.5 lb. per bushel, without having to pre-weigh the samples.

The new John Deere Grain Moisture Tester measures the moisture of harvested or stored grain and the temperature of stored grains with repeatable accuracy, the company says

The tester also measures the temperature of stored grains from 40 to 120 degrees F with repeatable accuracy to within 1 degree. Other features include a backlit LCD display, automatic temperature compensation and USB port and cord for simple software updates and downloading.

Each unit comes with an attached swiper for grain leveling and heavy-duty carrying case.

"This grain tester will hold more than 40 different grain calibrations," Deiters says, and will automatically average the operator's choice of 3, 6, or 9 sample readings.

"The GT-30300 Grain Tester is designed to provide accurate grain moisture, test weigh and temperature readings quickly and easily, without having to enter additional data or codes," Deiters adds.
