Soil Augering

Simple and efficient – don't ignore the usefulness of these hand tools

It's easy to be seduced by mechanical devices but we've found that a sample will often be retrieved more quickly and with less effort with the right hand auger if you remember the important principles: sample per layer, never mix your soil horizons and be sure to avoid the contamination of deeper layers. These tools are ideal for all types of soil research, for wind farms, for crop research and development, agronomy, mineral exploration and crop diversity. They are the tools for basic soil research around renewable energy and the low carbon sector.

The auger, in its many guises, is both simple and extremely efficient. This technology is not new: augers have been around for half a century but still have an indispensable role in environmental research both above and below the water table. So whether you need an 'Edelman' type of hand auger that is easy to use, surprisingly effective, quick, light and cheap or a gouge or liner sampler for undisturbed samples, or perhaps a percussive window or windowless sampler, Van Walt can help you decide and ensure you have what you need.
