Gouge Augers are designed for sampling wet clay and peat. They have a long, tapered stainless steel, semi-cylindrical chamber that is perfect for collecting undisturbed samples from very soft, wet soils while minimizing disturbance to any soft cohesive layers. When a Gouge Auger is pushed into the soil, twisted, and recovered, it can completely display a full and virtually undisturbed soil profile of peaty soil. Gouge Augers are made of stainless steel. If necessary, use a slide hammer to push the Gouge Auger into the soil and to help pull it out.
