History on Soil Augers

The 100mm bucket auger has been found to be the most effective, it penetrates all soil types easier than the 75mm and produces larger clods to examine, for example tp assess permeability and structure.

The shaft should be marked off in convenient depths (commonly 30 – 60 – 90 mm from the bottom of the bottom of the auger bit). Finally, the 70cm handle has obvious advanages in leverage when conditions are difficult.
