My old D-J moisture tester is probably 15 years old and by and large does OK (I think), but I've been thinking of something a little better. The crop adjuster had a D-J that does moisture and test weight. The basic model costs over $600. It looks a litlte more bulky than mine, and I like to carry mine up and into griin bins to sample from several places across the surface. So, I don't konw aobut carrying it.
Any recommendations for or against a good portable grain tester? Probably keep it not much more than the $600 but I'd look a little higher.
I mosty use it to know when to turn the heat and fan off in the bins and to check moisture when starting a field to decide if I want to continue or maybe which bin I would use.
