The Protimeter Balemaster is the ideal tool to help decide if bales are in a safe condition to store or for assessment at power station intake points.

The Protimeter Balemaster is a 2-piece instrument and probe that really stands up to heavy farm and industrial use. Pressure can be used to force the probe into tough bales, without risk to the instrument.

The Protimeter Balemaster uses a heavy duty 600mm moisture probe that measures the moisture content within the heart of the bale and determines if your straw is in a safe condition to store. An optional temperature probe is also available.
