The BaleCheck 200 is a professional measuring device for measuring the moisture in bales of pressed hay and straw. It helps you determine, very precisely, the suitability for storage and the quality of hay, straw and grain. This is particularly important in agriculture, stock breeding and horse care. The slim but robust measuring rod can be used for measurements at different depths. If the maximal moisture is <16.0 % u, the material is ready to be stored or used. The additional temperature measurement makes an automatic temperature compensation possible and supports fire prevention (proof of due diligence).
