    Hollow Stem Augers
    Hollow stem augers are turned to the desired depth with a pilot bit blocking the rod ID. The pilot bit is pulled and a split barrel sampler (split spoon) is lowered. The drop hammer is then placed on top of the rod string and the number of blows to advance the sampler is counted. The pilot bit can then be placed back in the augers and the auger string advanced to the next testing depth.

    Geoprobe® 3.25 in. Probe Rods
    3.25 in. probe rods are driven to the desired testing depth. The solid drive tip is pulled and a split barrel sampler is lowered. The drop hammer is then placed on top of the rod string and the number of blows to advance the sampler is counted. The solid drive tip can then be placed back in the cutting shoe and the rod string advanced to the next testing depth.
