Standard Auger Set for Heterogeneous Soils

Augering & soil sampling equipment
Item number:


Augerings and samplings in homegeneous soils (soils with an uniform soil profile), in almost all cases can be executed with one type of auger. For augerings in heterogeneous soils (soils with a layered soil profile), several different auger types will be applied. This has led to the composition of an auger set for heterogeneous soils.

With the standard set it is possible to execute manual augering to a depth of 5 meter, without great physical effort. The standard auger set comprises different auger types, diameter 7 cm, so that this set can be used successfully with augerings in layered soil profiles. The set can be used for augerings above the water table in all soils, and below the water table in cohesive soils.

The auger set (with bayonet connection), among other items, comprises: 4 types of Edelman augers (clay-, sand-, coarse sand and combination type), a Riverside auger, a stony soil auger, a spiral auger, a piston sampler and a gouge auger. The set additionally contains: extension rods, a fiberglass utility probe, a sounding device with measuring tape, a push-/pull handle, maintenance equipment and a field data registration set. The complete set is delivered in an aluminium transport case.
