The hay chest is extremely durable with a lightweight and compact design. Its wheels and robust extending handle make it highly portable, ideal for everyday use on the yard and a relief for those suffering with back problems. The Haygain HG 600 features our patented steam distribution manifold spike system - a five-pronged steam manifold which penetrates the hay, enabling steam to diffuse outwards throughout the hay. This enables steam to penetrate from the centre of the forage outwards, at temperatures in excess of 100ºC / 212ºF to eliminate respirable dust, kill mould spores and bacteria. With Haygain’s efficient patented design, the HG 600 cycle time from cold is 50 minutes, making the process quick and easy. The HG 600 unit is double-skinned for exceptional strength, delivering thermal efficiency in all ambient temperatures without compromising on performance. The 2.9kW steam generator (with a water capacity of 8 litres) features a stainless steel boiler shell with a domed lid for optimum steam flow and consistent delivery, a robust heating element and offers safety thermal protection with a “run dry” alarm and warning light. The balanced integrated handle allows for easy rinsing of the unit while the location of the filler spout, with its brass safety release filler cap, prevents over filling.
*The number of horses the HG 600 feeds is an approximate guide only based on portion size, compaction of hay, size of bale and number of steam cycles per day.
