Tube Sampler, 15 Inch
Use in lieu of an auger for bringing up fine samples intact. Chrome plated steel, 15" long, takes a 3/4" diameter sample core. Includes dry soil screw on tip. Can be coupled to any of the kits we offer. With tube in upright position, force into soil about six inches, being careful not to have soil tube deeper than about 1" from the top of the cut-out portion of the tube. Going deeper will compress the soil in the tube and it will be difficult to remove. Twist to the right only to break off core, remove tube slowly from the soil by turning to right (so as not to remove tip). If you do this, the tube will come out of the ground without breaking soil or turf, and you will have a perfect soil sample. Remove soil through cut-out portion of the tube. To determine how deep you are, check the markings on the rod. Do not exceed the six inch mark on each sample. Be sure to empty tube after each 6 inch mark. Shipping weight 2 lbs.
