The Open Hay Probe Kit quickly and simply extracts samples from hay/forage bales with an open tube using any 1/2 power drill. This is a good option for anyone who likes the ease of a power drill while sampling.
There is a cut-out in the front of the hay tube to allow for easy soil removal, visual inspection, and cleaning. The tube is approximately 18" in length and will take a sample that is 3/4" in diameter. The wooden dowel rod is specifically designed to help remove the sample from the tube. The tube attaches to a replaceable, screw-on Serrated Tip that comfortably cuts through hay. Comes with a Hex Adapter that fits any 1/2 inch power drill (sold separately).
The Open Hay Probe Kit includes:
One - Open Hay Tube
One - Serrated Tip
One - Dowel Rod
One - Hex Adapter
Made with exceptional workmanship and materials, our hay probes are finely machined for smooth, easy sampling, and long-lasting durability. All Oakfield Apparatus hay tubes are constructed of heavy stainless steel. All hay sampling components are interchangeable so you can add parts as needed.
If you are concerned about cross-contamination of your sample, check out our Closed Hay Probe Power Kit with a tube that completely encases the sample until you're ready for removal.
