The Compact Heavy Duty Soil Tube Kit was designed for use in areas with hard or stony soil, gravel or other difficult soil types. Each part is specially constructed to withstand added force or pounding into the ground. The kit comes with a 12" solid steel handle, a 15" heavy duty soil tube, replaceable, heavy duty soil tip, and sturdy 17" fiberboard storage case.
The 15" Heavy Duty Soil Tube is made of a thicker steel (13 gauge), so it is incredibly durable. Itwill take a core approximately 12" long by 3/4" in diameter.The outer diameter of the tube is 15/16". The tube is designed to eliminate friction in the tube after cutting the sample. The non-clogging design has a cut-out in the front to allow for easy soil removal, visual inspection, and cleaning. The sample is unloaded from the tube without binding or compacting. It is marked at 6" intervals to indicate sampling depth.
The inside of the 12" handle is solid steel, making it incredibly strong to use in tough soil and hold up while pounding into the ground.
Parts are easily unscrewed and taken apart for convenient carrying and storage in durable 17" fiberboard case.
All Oakfield Apparatus soil tubes are constructed of high-grade nickel chrome plated steel for extra rust, tarnish and corrosion resistance. All soil sampling components are interchangeable so you can easily add parts as needed.
