Gouge auger sets are often used in profile research for surveying purposes, soil assessment and rootage surveys.
The longer the operational part is, the more sensitive it is to torsion. So, the soil type is influential here. The most suitable diameter depends on the composition and the structure of the soil and the purpose of the research: in general, a smaller diameter is used in in soils with a fine or dense structure.
