Soil Sampling Equipment

Soil sampling equipment provides a fast and accurate way to profile soil layers and obtain a collection of core samples for classification and testing for an array of soil types. The equipment is lightweight yet heavy-duty and easy to transport to and from the field. Gilson's sampling equipment includes various types of soil augers, soil samplers, extensions, T-handle, and sampling accessories.


Soil Sampling Equipment, Soil Augers and Samplers

Augers, Extensions, Handles, and Quick-Connect Pins are available with either stainless steel or carbon steel construction.

Connecting Extensions to Augers will increase depth penetration capacity by several feet for more extensive exploration by using precision quick-connect fittings of high-strength steel. This system is faster, more robust, and easier to use than conventional threaded systems. Heat-treated super alloy bits can be rebuilt when worn.

Systems using 5/8-11 NC threaded connectors and stainless steel systems for environmental sampling applications are available, please contact customer service.

  • Soil Sampling Augers include standard soil augers, clay augers, sand augers, and mud augers (dutch) and can be used for sampling various soil types. Augers are available in 3in (76mm) and 4in (102mm) diameters and constructed in either carbon or stainless steel.
  • One-Piece Soil Samplers are available with 11in (279mm) or 14in (360mm) lengths. They have a T-handle and steel construction that allows penetration into sampling tougher soils.
  • Quick-Connect Auger Adapter is required to connect augers and older-model extensions with threaded connections to quick-connect components.
  • Quick-Connect Pins are required for connecting Augers and Extensions in quick-connect configurations.
  • Handles & Extensions connect to augers and help achieve greater depth penetration into the soil. They range in length from 2 to 5ft (610 to 1,524mm). Handles have a T-design to help easily guide the extensions deeper.
