The Closed Hay/Forage Tube avoids cross-contamination while extracting samples from hay bales.
The hay tube is approximately 18" in length and will take a sample that is 3/4" in diameter. There is a plug at the top of the tube to keep the sample completely encased until you are ready for extraction. Firmly press the pin down to remove the plug at the top of the tube to extracted the sample. We recommend using a Tip Wrench to press the pin down. The tube is extra strong to withstand any twisting during sampling. The tube comes with a replaceable, screw-on Serrated Tip that comfortably cuts through hay.
Made with exceptional workmanship and materials, our hay tubes are finely machined for smooth, easy sampling, and long-lasting durability. They are constructed of heavy stainless steel. All hay sampling components are interchangeable so you can add parts as needed.
