Baler Moisture Meter Plus

 The new 2178 with multi-sensor technology takes readings on the left and right side, as well as through the bale, for greater accuracy. The 2178 mounts in the cab of the tractor and provides a direct readout for % moisture while baling hay. Having multiple moisture content readings during each step of the haymaking process is critical to finishing with a high quality product.


  • Bale type: Small square bales and round bales
  • Large LCD display for easy viewing during day or night
  • Average of readings updated and displayed every 2-3 seconds
  • Illuminated keypad and text display
  • ± Moisture offset adjustments
  • User can set the high and low limit of the moisture reading and will be alerted by a buzzer if exceeded
  • Software upgrade via standard USB cable

Due to the many variables associated with hay moisture measurements an occasional "spot check" using a handheld probe on finished bales is recommended.

Operating Range (Moisture): 8% to 40% depending on baler type used Accurate throughout the normal range of stored hay Display Resolution: 0.1% moisture  Check it out here
