DewPoint 6210 Benefits
Replicated University Studies have proven that mechanical leaf loss using the DewPoint is about 1/2 of the typical leaf loss which occurs when baling with good natural dew. The preservation of this valuable component of the forage can offset the operating costs of the DewPoint.
Because the DewPoint preserves more leaf, bale weight also increases. DewPoint operators have consistently seen weight increases of 5-7%. With the DewPoint, farmers see fewer leaves on the ground and more leaves in each flake.
The DewPoint increase your hay value. Marketing is much easier when your bales are consistent from the first to the last. Your customers will know what to expect every time. With steam, a farmer can expect to have good bale compaction, increased leaf retention, and a bale that has good smell and colour.
Added Crop Yield
With steam, farmers can bale whenever their hay is dry which increases their baling window. Farmers with the DewPoint 6210 can cut, rake, and bale their hay and get the water back on their fields quicker, which adds valuable growing days when the weather is warmest. Added growing days means that farmers will realize higher yields at the end of the year.
Risk of Crop Value Loss
The DewPoint lowers the risk of crop value loss due to rained on hay or baling with dry conditions. We've had customers bale 500 acres in one day to beat storms. Farmers no longer have to make a choice between bailing dry hay to beat a storm or risking crop value loss due to rained hay.
Less Labor and Capital
One DewPoint equipped baler can replace 3-4 conventional balers depending on local atmospheric conditions. That means less capital, fewer maintenance expenses, and lower labor costs. The only limiting factor for baling time with the DewPoint System is when there is too much natural dew or when the hay is still too wet.
