The WINTEX 2000 works in all kinds of soil including sandy, clayey, hard, compact and dry soils. The probe goes into the ground by means of a hydraulic hammer and pressure from the cylinder which can be adjusted according to the type of soil. The custom-made probe rotates when it has reached the desired depth and picks up soil. On its way up homogeneous samples are delivered with close accuracy into the soil boxes. The probe perfectly holds the soil on its way up and is emptied fully after each operation. The soil can then be filled into bags or boxes by the means of a funnel, ready to be sent to the laboratory.
