The Eijkelkamp Ergonomic Soil Auger Set for heterogeneous soils is used to carry out manual drilling and sampling in a great variety of different soils in with maximum ergonomic protection. It is particularly suitable for general soil investigation (geology, archaeology) as well as taking soil samples for environmental research. It can provide soil samples to a depth of 5 metres, depending on the depth of the groundwater, the build-up of the soil and the nature of the substrate.
This set comprises a variety of soil auger heads to ensure that most soil types above and below the groundwater table can be sampled. With improved working height, rounded ends, ratchet system and extended T bar handle, the wrists of the user are maintained in a neutral position when using the auger to minimise strain. There is also a ‘halt knob’ which prevents drilling too low to the ground. The set comprises of: an ergonomic handle with ratchet, four 50cm extension rods, four Edelman auger heads (clay, sand, coarse sand and combination), a riverside auger head, a stony soil auger head, a spiral auger head, a 30mm diameter gouge auger, a 20mm bent spatula, coupling sleeves, a measuring tape and sounding device, a field data registration set, work gloves, maintenance equipment, a soft auger carrying bag and an aluminium carrying case with padlock.
