A simple fixed-handle auger for extracting soil samples. The auger is 1.2 m long with a metal shaft and T-bar handle with rubber grips at the top. It is made of high-grade non-toxic hardened steel. The auger is available with either a 4, 5, 7 or 10cm blade diameter.
For general purpose soil sampling a combination auger is recommended. This model gets a reasonable hold of sandy material, but still allows clay to be removed from the auger head.
