The Open Hay Probe Kit quickly and simply extracts samples from hay/forage bales with an open tube. There is a cut-out in the front of the tube to allow for easy soil removal, visual inspection, and cleaning. The hay 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. The hand brace allows you to just crank and turn the handle to easily cut into the hay.
The Open Hay Probe Kit includes:
One - Open Hay Tube
One - Serrated Tip
One - Dowel Rod
One - Hand Brace
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.
