Hodge Products Hay Chec® Forage Sampling Probe Tube
The Hay Chec® Advantage
Hay Chec® is the ideal manual push-type forage sampling probe to aid in Agronomy.
As indicated in the Hay Chec® Features, the materials used in Hay Chec® manufacturing are the highest quality of any manual push-type hay probe forage sampling equipment on the market.
The Hay Chec® Needle features a tapered cutting edge, as opposed to the common replaceable serrated cutting tip seen on most hay probes, the Hay Check® tapered cutting edge is the result of refinement through experience for the perfect angle and length that would result in a seamless penetration of the bale allowing the sample material to pass freely through the probe tube and prevent blockage.
The threaded tube bottom on the Hay Chec® Needle allows the probe tube to be easily replaced if bent or broken. With adequate care taken, after years of Hay Chec® use, this also affords the opportunity for your Hay Check® Needle to be sent back to the factory to be re-tapered so that it can provide many more years of reliable service.
The Hay Check® Needle internal diameter is appropriately sized between 0.375in (9.525mm) and 0.75in (19.05mm) to produce a standardized size diameter and length core sample of hay or forage as stipulated by Hay Sampling Protocols in the Hay Sampling Certification Program.
The Hay Chec® Needle length will provide consistent sample lengths to help ensure reliability throughout the lab testing process of the collected samples.
The base of the Hay Chec® Body is intentionally constructed to be heavier to created better balance and momentum during the sampling procedure.
The Hay Chec® Handles with Grips are appropriately sized to permit a firm grasp of the hay probe allowing proper technique, following Hay Sampling Protocol, when taking random core samples for testing.
Once filled with a forage sample, the Hay Chec® Collection Jar can be unscrewed from the Hay Chec® Body and capped with the mason-jar threaded lid to preserve the hay sample. Another collection jar can then be screwed onto the Hay Chec® Body for the next sample. Unlike other forage sampling probes that use bags, which can tear, the Hay Chec® Collection Jars will keep your hay samples safe and uncompromised all the way to the forage sample testing labs.
Best of all, because Hay Chec® is a manual push-type hay probe, no power source is required. This will allow you to collect you forage samples unencumbered by dead batteries or any other electrical needs.
