HayBoss Auto-adjusts Big Bale Preservative Rates

HayBoss Auto-adjusts Big Bale Preservative Rates

Applying a hay preservative on big square bales just got a lot easier. AGCO's new HayBoss G2 600 Series automatic application system senses moisture, records tonnage on the go, adjusts preserve rates based on that data and records the data.

The baler-mounted applicator, jointly engineered by Harvest Tec, is tied into the tractor cab and baler's ISOBUS electronic system, so that all moisture and application information is displayed on the tractor-mounted baler monitor. The 600 Series also interfaces with AGCO's bale weighing scales and the Garmin GPS receiver for yield mapping. It's all displayed on the same main operating screen.

AUTO-ADJUST HAY PRESERVATIVE RATES: AGCO's HayBoss G2 600 hay preservative applicator for large square balers lets you automatically boost application efficiency and monitor it from the tractor cab.

The system is available for all new Massey Ferguson, Challenger and Hesston large square balers. A non-automated electronic control system is also available for these large square balers.

Both feature 110-gallon preservative tanks mounted on the rear of balers. For more details, contact your AGCO baler dealer, or visit
