AMS Sand Augers are designed for use in sands and dry soils.
The AMS sand auger uses a closed bit design with a restricted opening to prevent the loss of sampled material during retrieval. The sand auger has a cylinder similar to the regular soil auger, but the inner edges of the sand auger bits touch at their mid point to make the sand auger a much more reliable auger in loose, unconsolidated soil conditions.
Please make sure any AMS samplers you intend to use together share a common connection type. See Connection Types for more information.
