Fits all threaded connection JMC Professional Augers and Extensions.
May be struck with a soft-faced mallet.
Heavy-Duty construction to withstand field abuse.
Nickel-Plated to protect against rust and wear.
This handgrip withstands pounding from a soft-faced mallet like our PN017 Dead-Blow Mallet. You may find this helpful when trying to get a hole started in difficult ground conditions.
Another Advantage to Consider:
A Driveable Handgrip gives you the option of retrieving core samples with a sampling tube. Simply replace the auger at the end of your extensions with a JMC Sampling Tube and a PN110 JMC Auger to Sampling Tube Adapter and you are ready to go. (see picture at right)
In fact, if you want to obtain an extremely accurate sample from a particular strata, you will have the best results with this procedure:
Carve a hole with your auger down to the top of the desired strata.
Replace the auger head with any JMC Sampling Tube and a PN110 JMC Sampling Tube Adapter.
Remove any loose debris inside the hole with a vacuum cleaner.
Lower the sampling tube into the hole and take your sample.

Developed for soil dissipation studies, but can be used like any of our sampling tubes. Sampling tube fills a plastic liner 2 inches in diameter by 6 inches long. Best for shallow sampling applications, this tube fits most of our JMC sampling devices, but may require an adapter.
The JMC Environmental Fate Sampler takes a 6 inch diameter by 2 inch deep sample. Compatible with the JMC Environmentalist Sub-Soil Probe or any hydraulic soil probe, it maximizes recovery of surface applied chemicals on day zero and greatly reduces surface contamination risk to subsequent samples.
