Product image Product image Push the probe using the handle and the end of the handle. Do not touch the probe during a push or measurement. Otherwise push force measurement or the electrical moisture measurement may not function as intended. Take care not to bend the probe, especially when pulling it out of a bale. The probe is made of strong steel, but it is quite thin to keep required push force reasonable.  It is easiest to pull the probe out of a bale by grabbing the top of the meter as illustrated above.
