The HG 600 consists of a steam generator and an insulated, wheeled chest incorporating a handle for ease of movement. Designed to feed 1-4 horses, you can steam half a small bale, loose hay or haynets. The hay chest allows very high temperatures to be reached (in excess of 212ºF) which is critical to kill harmful mold spores and bacteria in hay. Its cycle time from cold is 60 minutes, making the process quick and easy.

The steam generator (with a water capacity of 2.1 gal) 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 overfilling.

**OCTOBER thru DECEMBER 2021: All HayGain steamers will take 4-6 weeks to ship out.

PROS: The steamer is easy to set up and use - best to set up with a timer so you can turn it on and have the hay ready for the next feeding. I steam the hay in the haynet which works good for me. Can only steam 1 feeding for 2 horses and a mini at once so I don't think it holds as much hay as thy say but nonetheless, it is sooooooo much better than soaking! I am very happy I went with the medium size and not the smallest one. The hay smells sweet and the horses do enjoy it. I can't determine if it helps with my horse's coughing as we had it under control prior to the HayGain arriving. I feel good that I know the hay I'm feeding is free from mold and other irritants. Temp gets up to 80'C+ consistently. CON - the only con I have found is the drainage tray. It is a pain to be honest. It would be so much better if they built up the legs of the bin a few inches higher which could allow for a larger tray or a drain hose.


Got my mares severe COPD in control

Got my mares severe COPD in control. My 10 year old Draftcross mare had been hospitalized for severe breathing problems, on inhalers, scoped, and on multiple medications. All the above only helped for a short time. I had to eliminate all the factors that could cause an other attack. Now since 1/2 a year my mare is on steamed hay, pelleted bedding and Smartpak omega3. She stays inside the barn at night with all her friends in a well ventilated stall that has been rigged to avoid her to cribb. No cough since 3 months! I believe that the HayGain has been a major factor to improve her well being but the solution was to atact the problem from multiple sides. All the other barn horses love to get a snack of steamed hay too:)

Really Works!

Really Works! Hay Gain has helped us manage a horse with allergies. Since we have put it into use in Dec 2013, we're off medications. The steamer is easy to use and maintain. The steamed hay is a hit with the horses who get it. Never any wasted hay! Our horses eat timothy hay which is notorious for anyone with hay fever. An added benefit, the timothy that comes out of the steamer doesn't trigger my hay fever! Who knew.... Would highly recommend it.

The horses LOVE it!

The horses love it! I've had the steamer for several months, now. It was purchased because of an ill horse. Steaming his hay was recommended by our veterinarian. We now feed steamed hay to all 3 of our horses they enjoy their hay more, since we began steaming. This product is easy to use and seems to be of high quality construction.

Steamer is what it promises

A Lifesaving Alternative to Soaking Hay I bought this steamer about 3 months ago after researching various options for either soaking or steaming hay and am thankful I did since we are experiencing the worst winter in recent memory. The steamer is what it promises to be: in less than an hour it steams to a consistent temperature and makes the hay more palatable for even the horses without respiratory issues. What I don't like is that the very heavy lid will not stay in the open position and if you move the chest, it falls with force. It has crushed my finger and knocked my head until I learned to close it before inserting the drip pan or other jarring activities. The drip pan is useless. It is much too small for the gallon of water recommended for top dressing so I replaced it with an old saute pan. The device also will freeze in cold temps, so you have to guard against this. If the gaskets or hose freeze, the steamer will overheat and shut off. I've resorted to using it in my garage and disconnecting everything at night when extremely cold. I like the wheels and handle for easily moving it about. I have also heard that the steam vents sometimes become clogged with debris, so it is advisable to keep the chest cleaned out.
