JMC Backsaver N-2 Handle with Special Cleaner and JMC Sampling Tube

Don't risk serious injury to your back, hands, or wrists. Pull soil samples easily with our JMC Backsaver N-2 Handle. Your best option for fast "plow layer" (12 to 18 inches) sampling.

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 with the JMC Special Cleaner held in a leather pouch on your belt and you are ready to go again.

Our JMC Backsaver N-2 Handle fits a variety of soil sampling tubes. Each tube features a self-sharpening tip that outlasts common replaceable tips eight to one and pulls consistently good cores.

We have 4 kinds of tubes for this option.

  Wet Sampling Tubes.

  Dry Sampling Tubes.
