I love the features list of the 919: "State-of-The-Art Technology: the electronics use solid state transistors instead of vaccum tube technology. NO TUBES TO BURN OUT!" (https://www.halross.com/English/product-moisture.asp). You don't see that on a web page very often!

[QUOTE=Don Boles;3346893]In what manner is it automatic?[/QUOte

When your weighed sample is in the machine, it tells you the moisture and temp of the grain you selected. There are no books or charts to look at. Very quick and easy.

It is a little more expensive to buy, of course, but well worth it.

Ah, charts and temp sensor build into unit, handy and faster.
Thanks coolio.

I was custom drying wheat last winter and delivering it to the local P&H last winter and any load that the protein/moisture tester showed tough the guy retested with the 919 and bought the load based on the 919 reading.

My local elevator does that as well. They use the 919 for more accuracy when needed.

The 919 is the standard in the industry. CGC uses them, and any elevator that I know of uses them, and when they have someone come out to calibrate the machines, they also use the 919.


One thing to keep in mind is that they do change/adjust the charts from time to time. Found that out the hard way one time. On the ones that are automatic, I assume there is a way to upload new charts if they are changed?

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Go ask your local concert what they use. Everyone has switched to GAC for accuracy reasons and speed couple years ago. 919 was great in there day just not so much now. Haul in 68lb wheat or 53lb Canola and see how accurate your 919 is. The rest of the world has been using the likes of GACs for years we where just slow to adapt in Canada. The thing about GACs is they adjust for weight and big temperature ranges- also store a endless amount of data

My wheat was 67.5 lbs last year and our 919 was exactly what the elevator was. Never had a problem.

Is GAC a brand, or is a type of grain tester that is available from different vendors?

GAC 2500 is made by Dickey John and is a Unified Grain Moisture Algorithm tester. US has used them for years and CGC approved there use around 2015 or there abouts Everything about them is automatic and they test almost any type of grain you can think of for US or Canadian grade spec and calibration
