The Compact One-Piece Soil Probe is our smallest one-piece probe, measuring 19″ long. This model is the best soil sample probe for gardens and lawn care maintenance. It’s a perfect balance between affordability, professional quality, and portability.
The 8″ handle is welded on to the soil tube so there are no parts to remove, making it easy to grab and go. As a single unit, it’s incredibly durable and comes with a replaceable, screw-on Regular Soil Tip. Other screw-on tips are available for different types of soil (see below).
Takes a core sample approximately 15″ long by 3/4″ in width (outer diameter of the probe is 15/16″). The tube is designed to eliminate friction in the tube after cutting the sample. It has a non-clogging design with a cut-out in the front to allow for easy soil removal, visual soil profile inspection, and cleaning. The sample is unloaded from the tube without binding or compacting. It is marked at 6″ intervals to indicate sampling depth.
Made with exceptional workmanship and materials, our soil probes are finely machined for smooth, easy sampling, and long-lasting durability. All Oakfield Apparatus soil tubes are constructed of high-grade nickel chrome-plated steel for extra rust, tarnish and corrosion resistance.
- The friction-resistant design allows samples to be removed easily from the tube.
- The sample tube has 13/16″ inside tube diameter.
