AMS soil augers are commonly used for obtaining disturbed soil samples at or near the surface and for boring to depths where samples may be obtained with a soil sampler or soil core sampler.
AMS augers are available in all stainless steel for EPA testing or carbon steel bits with stainless steel cylinders for general soil sampling and augering.
Perfect for augering shallow depths, AMS soil augers can also auger deeper depths and are generally limited by only the time and muscle of the user. In fact, users have recorded going over 100 ft using the AMS soil auger in a variety of soil conditions.
Most models are available with a threaded or Quick Connect connection, a rounded bail for added torque resistance, stainless steel cylinder for easier decontamination. There are also specially formed bits that dig and cut through the soul at the same time for easy penetration.
