PN016 JMC T-Handle


1.12 lbs
Our price


When you encounter particularly difficult soils, you may be forced to pound your sampling tube into the ground. When faced with this situation, we recommend our JMC T-Handle and a soft-faced, dead-blow hammer. The T-Handle easily withstands the pounding from a soft-faced mallet, but does not add significantly to the overall weight of your sampling kit.

The JMC T-Handle fits any sampling tube that will fit any of the JMC Backsaver Handles - Specifically:

Some options to consider

We recommend the a dead-blow mallet to reduce operator fatigue. The shot loaded, 1.75 pound mallet head does not bounce on impact.

By itself, the JMC T-Handle can only sample the length of your sampling tube. For deeper sampling, you will need one or more of our JMC Rod Extensions. Made from 1/2 inch diameter stressproof steel, these extensions offer the best combination of lightness and strength. They simply screw together as needed between your JMC T-Handle and your sampling tube. You may also want an extra extension or two to bring the T-Handle up to a convenient height for pounding.
