WORK LOG 

The system is designed to be mounted  on ATVs from 350 to 500 cc, but it can easily be adapted to other vehicles .The actuator key-pad and sample container are within fingertip reach  to avoid having  to descend  from the vehicle during  sample collection. The VSoil software can be used with a palm-top computer (not included) to generate sampling grids and sampling points monitoring  within the field.

 

TECHNICAL FEATURES

•    Sampler tube
•    Tip diameter: 25 mm.
•    Tip speed: 120 RPM maximum.
•    Sampling depth: 20-40 cm.
•    Sampling container capacity: 1 Kg.
•    Amount extracted per drilling: approx. 80 grams.*
•    Drilling time: 40 seconds.

* Sample weight depends directly on soil condition and type.

•    Oil: 0.6 litres. 

 

ELECTRIC BOARD 

•    12- volt battery connection.
•    Manual control with key-pad, automatic detention at 20 cm or 40 cm.
•    Tip with reverse rotation for easy removal.

 

OPERATION 
A 3 to 4 HP motor provides the power to drive a hydraulic pump. A solenoid valve controlled with the push-buttons derives the pump both to a hydraulic motor which drives the borehole and to a second motor which  drives the lifting and lowering system of the borehole, hence all movements  are powered from the push-buttons. The above described set is mounted on a chassis  for easy installation on the  vehicle.
