The two-piece root auger is used to take uniform samples (almost undisturbed) in layers of maximum 5.9 inch (15 centimeters) to a depth of 6.5 feet (2 meter). With this root auger, it is easy to take a sample from all non-stony-like soil layers.
By applying the two-piece root auger, nearly undisturbed and uniform soil samples can be taken in layers of maximum 5.9 inch (15 centimeters). The bi-partite root auger consists of a bottom part fitted with an exchangeable drilling-crown and a short unscrew able top part (handle) with a beating head.
In lighter soil the auger can be pushed and turned into the soil. In heavier soils an impact absorbing hammer can be used.
In the standard set an Edelman- and a Riverside auger have been included for reaming out the bore hole and levelling the bottom (making it even). A conical threaded connection is used.
The root auger is fitted with a sample extruder unit which forces the soil sample from the cylinder of the auger. The extruder unit is operated by means of a crank handle.
The complete root auger set, including all accessories, is packaged in an aluminum transport case.
