Works great! Glad I ordered two. I put both in the hay net, then turn one so both sides are open & smooth. Makes putting hay in so much easier! I'm still having a small problem holding it in a roll to put it in but am sure I'll get better with practice.

Great product. Saves me lots of time. Don't need anyone to hold the hay bag open. This does it for me. Bought two just in case.

This is the answer to filling hay bags without getting frustrated! It's very easy to use and works great. The only downside is that it's not easy to store but I just keep it near the hay and load the hay bag from there. Easy peasy!

BEST USES

  • Filling hay nets

Comments:

The Stablehand is useful, but not quite as easy-to-use as I was envisioning. The idea is good - a giant flexible funnel that would help hold bags or hay nets open while you put stuff in. And it does work. The hard part is still getting it to hold a shape that you can put into a bag while putting it into the bag. There are handles, but if you hold them with one hand and the bag with the other, your cylinder turns into a funnel that opens the wrong way - big side down. Part of the problem is that the corners are still too square and catch on hay netting. They are rounded but not quite enough maybe? It could also benefit from handles on both ends. On the up side, it appears sturdy and will probably last a good long time as long as I find a place to stash it where it won't blow away. It can make loading hay nets easier, I just wish I could figure out the best way to hold it.

It's a good idea, but I find that it's hard to get it into the hay net. Once it's in there it makes putting the hay in much easier, but the hay nets are awkward and hard to open. Not really the fault of this product, just hay nets in general.

I like to weigh out my hay servings and the Stablehand makes it so much easier to fill my hay bags when hanging from a fish scale. I did have to replace my first Stablehand when the plastic broke at one of the hand holds, but still wanted another because it is such a helpful tool.

The StableHand is indeed very handy for putting messy stuff into bags. As a new trailer owner, and being clueless about so many things, I really appreciate things to streamline the process. Putting hay in my nibble net is a breeze! I even used it for a sleeping bag stuffer after we had overnight guests. The only thing that keeps me from giving the product 5 stars is that its' difficult to store. I kind of wish it folded somehow.

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.
