The Soil Probe has been working in the field for years under all kinds of conditions. AMS Soil Probes are trusted worldwide as the instrument of choice among farmers, agricultural consultants, fertiliser technicians and other professionals whose job it is to retrieve samples to analyse soil for nutrient, moisture content and consistency. They can also be used to take turf samples in parks, golf courses or yards. Soil Probes are a great tool to bore small diameter holes around trees or shrubs for direct fertilisation.Manufactured from high-strength, aircraft quality 4130 chrome plated alloy or stainless steel with a hardened or heat-treated tip. All AMS Soil Probes come with a cross handle. AMS Soil Probes set the industry standard.For harder soils or deeper soil sampling the AMS Soil Probes may be used with the AMS Slide Hammer or Extensions. The probe cuts a sample slightly smaller than the I.D. of the probe to facilitate easy sample removal.

AMS soil probe soil sampling tool for small diameter samples at or near the ground surface.

The AMS Soil Probe is used for surface sampling. It cuts a sample slightly smaller than the inner dimension of the probe to facilitate easy sample removal. Outer dimension of the probe is slightly larger for ease of soil penetration.

BENEFITS AND FEATURES:
Easily take and view soil samples with this probe.
With added extensions, it is extendable to even greater soil depths.
Open slot for easy removal of soil sample.
Thread on cross handle for compact storage.

The probe is made of 4130 alloy steel with hardened tip, and is available with chrome plating. Probes are also available in stainless steel for environmental use. All soil probes come complete with cross handle and are available with optional Slide Hammer attachments. Achievement of greater soil depths may be obtained by combining the AMS Soil Probe with the AMS extensions.

How to use:
Assemble probe using either the supplied Cross Handle or the optional Slide Hammer. Once the probe is assembled, drive it into the soil. Once sampling depth is achieved, retrieve soil sample by pulling back on the Cross Handle or tapping upward with Slide Hammer. Remove sample from probe and place into sample container.

Decontaminate the soil probe and repeat the above or add extension(s) to recover soil samples from the same hole at greater depths
