BEST USES

  • Leaves
  • Hay Bags

Comments:

I admit I tried to make due using old boxes and sheets of plastic to facilitate quick loading of hay bags. But the Stable Hand rocks. The built in hand grips making rolling it up easy - so the hay bag is ready for loading in two seconds. It took a chore I dreaded and made it fast, fast, fast.

  • Sweep Loose Hay Onto It
  • Catching Loose Hay

Comments:

Great product - I recommend it to anyone using hay nets. The nets stay open and standing for filling. I also use it to sweep loose hay onto after filling the nets. You can use it as a mat under filled nets, and when transferring the filled nets to the stall or paddock (reduces cleanup of loose hay). It would help if there was another hand-hole on the opposite side to help keep it rolled up tight enough while inserting into net,as it tends to want to unroll before insertion - but it really isn't a show-stopper. That would give it 5 stars!

It cut chore time in half when my Daughter was gathering up hay that had been rained on and disposing of it. She said it didn't seem like work.

Comments:

I loved the idea of this product, and it does work, just not as easily as I hoped. I use it on several forms of hay nets. If they already stretch easily then it's a snap to slide the stablehand in, however, on a tighter woven polynet the corners of the stablehand get hung up on the netting. I solved this by tieing the handles together with twine but it's another step. I did find it is great to help slide things saround that are too heavy to lift.

Pros: I can now fill hay nets to capacity in only a few minutes. It is perfect to fill large trash bags with dead leaves. Cons: It is a little stiff and hard to hold when it is rolled up - but this is only a minor difficulty.

Comments:

Was a little hard to get in the hay bag but once it was in it made filling the bag a lot easier. Tried using it in a flexible tub and that didn't work at all, kept popping out.

  • Can Fill Nets By Myself

CONS

BEST USES

  • Filling Hay Nets Easily

Comments:

For such a simple idea, this product works great! I can now fill the hay nets by myself without someone having to try to hold them open. It has also made my nets looser so they don't want to spring closed as much. I have not used the StableHand for other purposes, but I can see how it would be helpful for bagging leaves also. It stores flat so doesn't take up hardly any room, or could be rolled and tied for storage.

Comments:

This is the next best thing to having an extra hand. It's flexible, doesn't take up much room. I have two, one for the barn and one for the house. They perform as the product was described. I hope it never wears out, although they are a little pricey I would still buy a replacement if I had to.

Wrap in a circle, slid into your slow feeder bag when filling and your hassels are gone for good! I feed Tymothy hay which is loose, this solves the problem. On very cold nights you can really load up the slow feeder bag.

Comments:

This product is really helpful for filling hay bags or any type of bag when you could use an extra hand. Unfortunately the handle broke one day when the temperature was in the 20s and I was pulling it out of the hay bag. Apparently the material doesn't like the cold any more than I do. Though it is guaranteed to last forever, the price is low enough that I'll just purchase another rather than trying to get this one replaced.

Comments:

This product is so easy to use, I just roll it up, put it between my legs, open the hay net, slide the rolled up stable hand into the hay net, let it open naturally and wala....I have a standing hay net ready to fill with flakes of hay. So simple...and so easy to use, now I use my haynets all the time.
