Two-Piece Gouge Auger Set - Soft Soils, Bayonet

SKU: 0402SA

The gouge auger set with bayonet connection for soft soils is used for soil sampling and profiling in more or less soft soils. This auger produces beautiful soil profiles from a depth of up to 5 metres.

  • Up to a depth of 5 metres
  • Three gouge diameters 60-30-20 mm
  • One-man operated bayonet connection
  • Very sturdy high tensile strength steel
  • Non contaminating bare steel, no lacquers no zinc plating


The gouge auger is made out of carbon steel strip, which is forged into its half cylindrical form with parallel cutting edges. Non-contaminating bare steel is used, no lacquers and no zinc plating.

The gouge augers can be extended by coupling an extension rod. This way samplings can be carried out in a very short time and greater depths can be reached. Please note that the set is not suitable for hammering. We recommend storing the set in a clean and dry place if you do not use it for a longer period of time. 


  • Soil sampling above and below groundwater table
  • Archaeological soil research
  • Environmental soil research

  • Soil mapping
  • Soil suitability reviews
