AMS auger buckets are commonly used for obtaining disturbed soil samples at or near the surface and for boring to depths where samples may be obtained with a soil sampler or soil core sampler.
AMS auger buckets are available in all stainless steel for EPA testing or carbon steel bits with stainless steel cylinders for general soil sampling and augering. Perfect for augering shallow depths, AMS soil augers can also auger deeper depths and are generally limited by only the time and muscle of the user. In fact, users have recorded going over 100 ft using the AMS soil auger in a variety of soil conditions!
Most models are available with threaded or quick connect connections.
Augers use a rounded bail for added torque resistance. Reinforced bucket auger options are also available.
Augers create holes up to 1/4” larger than the cylinder to minimize drag.
Specially formed bits allow for easy penetration into most soil conditions.
Most models are available in stainless steel for environmental sampling and easier decontamination.
Powered options are available.
Left-handed augers, extensions and cross handles are available.
Replacement bits and repair services are available.
