Model: HM-559A
$587.0000
Price: $587.00

Static Cone Penetrometer evaluates soil compaction, soil consistency, and bearing capacity of foundations and pavement subgrades. Press the penetrometer into the soil 6in (152mm), take a reading from the gauge, then advance another 6in to take the next reading, and continue to the desired depth. Fine-grained, soft soils yield the most accurate results, while gravel and rocks in the soil can cause inaccurate readings.
