Sampling Probes

Sampling Probes are useful for sampling seed, grain, and other granular materials. Shorter length probes are more commonly used when sampling from drums and bins, while longer probes are optimal for sampling from larger stockpiles such as barges, rail cars, large trucks and hoppers.
