Soil Sampling Kits

Soil Sampling Kits

AMS soil sampling kits provide complete, compact systems that utilize our most popular augers, samplers, and sampling components.

 

Most AMS sampling kits include soil augers, soil core samplers, extensions, cross handles, slide hammers, and either a lightweight or heavy-duty carrying case. The carrying cases allow our soil sampling kits to be very portable and easy to keep organized. You can also purchase the items from any AMS soil sampling kit individually to replace worn parts or to create your own custom soil sampling kit.

  • Professional Soil Sampling Kits
    Professional Soil Sampling Kits
    AMS professional soil sampling kits are designed for soil sampling professionals who want the strongest, most durable connection on all of their new and imporoved augers, extensions, cross handles, slide hammers, and split-core samplers. They are AMS's newest and most impressive soil sampling kits to date.   AMS professional series sampling kits come with 3/4in threaded professional regular auger and mud auger (2 1/4in or 3 1/4in), as well as three 4ft extensions, 18in rubber-coated cross handle, 10 lb. slide hammer, split-core sampler (2in x 6in or 1 3/8in x 6in), plastic liner, two end caps, rock breaker kit, cleaning brush, universal slip wrench, and two adjustable crescent wrenches. All of the components fit into an included AMS deluxe carrying case with handles and wheels for added portability.   All of the AMS professional series components have been made stronger and more durable than our standard components, and they feature AMS's strongest, most durable connection type. Professional series augers have been beefed up from bit to bale. They feature the trusted AMS 3/4in threaded connection and have thicker (11 gauge) cutting teeth with stronger welds and extra tungsten carbide hard surfacing. They are also reinforced with extra gussets that are welded at both the top and bottom of the bail. These gussets help prevent the bail from bending or twisting when augering into hard or rocky soils, or when the augered hole is exceptionally deep.   The professional series 3/4in threaded extensions are constructed of a larger 1in diameter chrome molybdenum tubing and are powder-coated safety orange for added rust resistance. The redesigned 10 lb. rubber-coated slide hammer is equipped with a more robust 3/4in-diameter inner slide bar that makes it more reliable and prevents bending of the bar. The new split-core sampler caps include a thicker (.800in) top cap than our standard split-core samplers. The thicker top cap is designed to match up with the larger 3/4in threaded female connection of the new professional slide hammer to provide increased durability. The cap works with regular split-core cup sets. Split-core sampler dimensions are based on the OD of their liner. The OD of the sampler can be up to 1/2in larger. The AMS 3/4in connection may also be added to core samplers as well as other components for only $25. Contact AMS customer service for more information.

  • Fiberglass Auger Kit
    Fiberglass Auger Kit
    The AMS Fiberglass Auger Kit provides some protection against possible electric shock when working in areas where buried electric cables may be present. The one-piece 48-inch Fiberglass Tile Probe included in the kit is ideal for locating irrigation, power and water lines, and it should be used as a primary device to determine whether or not it is safe to use a hand auger at the sampling location.   *It is important to exercise caution when using fiberglass extensions, as they cannot absorb the same amount of torque that a standard steel extension can. Failure to recognize this will result in fiberglass bloom & splintering.   Remember to call 811 for information on buried objects and lines before you dig.
  • Deluxe Fiberglass Auger Kit
    Deluxe Fiberglass Auger Kit

  • Bulk Density Soil Sampling Kit
    Bulk Density Soil Sampling Kit
    This unique sampling kit comes with everything necessary to take accurate interval specific core samples to a depth of 3ft. The kit is ideal for sampling the soil surface, in auger holes or in profile pits. The Soil Sample Rings found in this kit are made from .062w SST tubing. These SST sample rings are ideal for laboratory studies and for undisturbed core samples. The volume of each 2” x 2” SST ring is 90.59 cubic centimeters. From this known volume and the weight of the sample liner, you will be able to calculate the bulk density of the soil sample. *An accurate determination of bulk density starts with proper sampling technique to ensure that the sample collected represents the soils natural condition.   Bulk Density Soil Core Sampler Exclusive Features:   Standard AMS Core samplers have a 1”+ gap between the tip of the core sampler and where the sample liner internal shelf begins. The sampler included in this kit has a much shorter 5/16” gap which provides a more representative core and reduces compaction as the soil enters the sampler. Liners and core sampler are held to extremely tight tolerances. Core Sampler Cap has a built in waste barrel which provides a full 2” of relief. This helps eliminate compaction from overdriving the sampler. It also eliminates the need to load multiple rings inside the sampler, which can cause sample blow by and skew sample calculations.   Kit includes: Core sampler cup, core sampler cap, hammer head cross handle or compact slide hammer attachment, 2-1/2” open face auger, 2-3/4” regular soil bucket auger, 2-3/4” planer auger, 2ft. extension rod, 18” rubber coated cross handle, 2” x 2” stainless steel rings (25) with their own aluminum carrying case w/ foam inserts, 2” plastic end caps (50), adjustable wrenches (2), auger cleanout tool, nylon cleaning brush, impact absorbing hammer, AMS deluxe carrying case with handles and wheels for added portability
