For Soil, I want to:

Take a soil sample.

We supply a large selection of augers and auger sets from Eijkelkamp. They come in single (standalone) augers with the handle permanently attached to the auger bottom, or combination augers where the auger bottom is separate and it can be fitted to a handle with a bayonet or conical screw threaded coupling.

One can also include 0.5m and/or 1m length handle extension pieces to make the handle longer. Different auger bottoms can be fitted to a single handle, thus offering cost savings. One has to pick the auger most suitable for the type of soil it will be used in, sand, clay, stony soil, etc. Diameters of augers are typically 5-10cm.
