Adding a probe camera help you avoid damaging the tarp bows & straps.

When the probe operator can not see the top of the truck, a probe camera can pay for itself by saving you the money spent buying damaged tarp bows and straps.
Experience has shown that when trying and see the whole truck using a camera mounted on a tall pole, it is difficult to judge where the probe is positioned over the truck (depth perception).
On our Shuttle Grain Probe, the camera is mounted at the top of the probe and turns with the probe. At this location the probe stinger is always near the middle of the picture, regardless of where the probe is turned, and since the camera is only 8 to 12 feet away from the load, the problem of depth perception is almost eliminated.
Color cameras allow you to see any trash on the top of the load and quickly determine what type of grain it is.
For the lower cost (compared to component camera systems), our customers are very impressed with the quality of picture and how operating the probe is much more convenient.
