Product Description

JMC Backsaver Handle with Special Cleaner and JMC Zero Contamination Tube

Don't risk serious injury to your back, hands, or wrists. Pull samples easily with our JMC Backsaver Handle. Fitted with an 18 inch JMC Zero Contamination Tube, this handle allows you to gather undisturbed soil samples encased in removeable PETG Copyester liners down to 46 inches. No bending over - handgrip stays at waist level throughout the sampling procedure.

Simply step down on the footpedal to plant your sampling tube. Then, grab the hand grip (now near waist level) and use your legs to lift the sampler out of the ground. Clean your tube quickly by first removing the plastic liner containing your sample. Then unplug the end of the tube with the JMC Special Cleaner held in a leather pouch on your belt. Finally, insert a clean liner into the sampling tube and you are ready to go again.

Insert the tube into the same hole in the ground. Step lightly on the footpedal to release the sliding rod inside the handle. Let 8 to 12 inches of the rod slide out of the handle. Then step down hard on the footpedal to lock the rod and drive the sampling tube further into the ground. When the tube is full (You can track depth by looking at the holes in the side of the Backsaver), pull the tube from the ground as you did before. When the hand grip gets too high for comfort, step lightly on the foot pedal and slide some of the rod back into the handle.

Customer Reviews

I have been using a backsaver soil probe for 15 years and still have my original one. It is the best there is, from the handy ratcheting design, to the great cutting tip. There are a lot of other soil probes out there, but this one works the best.
