Hand BraceSKU: #120
The Hand Brace is used for easily boring holes in order to sample soil, hay, forage, or other. You simply crank the handle to turn and the probe will bore down further. It can be used interchangeably with our augers and hay tubes. The non-slip grip on the handle makes it easy to use in all conditions.
Additional benefits of using a hand brace is that it is quiet, allows good accuracy for hole positioning, and can be lighter to carry than a powered drill.
