THE QUICK CONNECT SYSTEM

We offer the original quick connect soil sampling equipment.  Simple, yet reliable. Other’s have tried to
imitate but failed to innovate on the design. There is no better working equipment on the market and that
is our promise. We have incorporated modern CNC and laser equipment to produce high strength
precision-machined parts to eliminate sloppy fit.  The Quick-Connect fittings are designed as an integral
part of the tools as opposed to retrofitted bulky cast parts, which some competitors use. A simple one-
piece pin is used to securely hold the tools together.  There are no spring-loaded pins to freeze up and
no special tools are needed in the field to assemble or disassemble the system.  Simplicity,
dependability, and quality…

5/8”-NC THREADED SYSTEM

We are now offering 5/8”-NC threaded augers and accessories.  This connector system offers you
another option in selecting the equipment that is right for you, whether due to pricing considerations or
preference. It offers economy and less weight without sacrificing longevity. We intend to provide you with
the most reliable threaded equipment on the market.  This system is not intended to replace, and is not
compatible with our standard Quick-Connect. Adapters are available.

ONE-PIECE AUGER SYSTEM

Our one-piece augers have been a great seller to companies and organizations that operate on a strict
budget.  We eliminated the connections, which are costly to manufacture, without sacrificing quality.  
Instead, your handle, extension, and auger are a one-piece design.  The handle is 12” , the extension is
42” and the auger is 16” long. Maximum sampling depth is approximately 56”. Our one-piece augers are
available in 3” and 4” Regular or Clay, carbon or stainless steel
.
3" & 4" Mud (Dutch) Auger (Pictured Right)

The unique design of our mud augers makes
them ideal for use in a wide variety of wet
soils including mucky and boggy root bound
soils.  Soil discharge from these augers is
easy due to the open design.  The entire one
piece cutting section is constructed of a
durable heat-treated super- alloy.  Mud augers
are 12” (30 cm) in length.  Mud augers are
available in carbon or all stainless steel.

ONE-PIECE AUGERS
Our 2” auger line is constructed differently from our 3” and 4”.  These augers are made out of a one-
piece tubular bucket for strength and reliability.  They work well in situations where a large diameter
sample is not needed.  Our 2” augers are available in Regular, Clay, Sand, and Planer styles.  All 2”
augers are 12” (30cm) in length.
2" Regular/Sand Auger (Pictured Below)

The 2” Regular and Sand augers have the same body
design. Each has two open windows as you can see
pictured on the left.  The Regular augers have an open
bit placement to allow small objects to pass, along
with ease of sample discharge. The Sand augers
have a closed bit placement to maximize sample
retention.  Each is available in carbon or all stainless
steel. Bits are made of heat-treated super alloy.
2" Clay Auger (Pictured Below)

The 2” Clay auger, pictured left, has a four
window body along with an open bit
placement.  This is to create a larger sample
viewing area, ease of sample discharge and
a lighter weight auger.  Clay augers are
available in carbon or all stainless steel.  Bits
are made of heat-treated super alloy.

2" Planer Auger (Pictured Right)

Our Planer augers, pictured left, are
designed to flatten and clean the bottom of a
pre-bored hole.  This is useful when sizing a
hole for permeability testing and where
precise sizing is required.  The cutting edge
is constructed from a heat-treated super alloy.
Our 3” and 4” auger lines use a bail and tube design.  They are available in Regular, Clay, Sand,
Mud, and Planer.  All 3" & 4" augers with the exception of Mud are 18” (45cm) in length.
3" & 4" Regular/Sand Auger (Pictured Below)
The 3” and 4” Regular and Sand augers,
pictured left, have the same closed body
design. The Regular augers have an open bit
placement to allow small objects to pass
along with ease of sample discharge. The
Sand augers have a closed bit placement to
maximize sample retention.  Each is
available in carbon or all stainless steel. Bits
made of heat-treated super alloy.
3" & 4" Clay Auger (Pictured Below)

Our 3” and 4” Clay augers, pictured left, have
two machined window openings in the body
along with an open bit design This is to
create a larger sample viewing area, ease of
sample discharge and a lighter weight
auger.  Clay augers are available in carbon
or all stainless steel.  Bits are made of heat-
treated super alloy.
