Geotechnical Tooling by Geoprobe®

Fewer Fieldwork Frustrations

Evaluating the strength and density of soil shouldn’t require twisting, banging, or squeezing your tooling in a vice in order to complete the sample. The Geoprobe® patented interlocking split spoon revolutionized split spoon sampling with its durability and ease. No more bulging or bending spoons or rounding off shoes. No more waiting on helpers to wrestle with opening spoons.

Beyond split spoon sampling, completing standard penetration testing or Shelby tube tests is made easier when using Geoprobe®spring assisted swivel lift caps. Let the spring do the work and save your forearms and wrists when pulling tool strings. Length, weight, and vent holes are designed specifically to make geotechnical investigations efficient and safe.

Guided by feedback from the field and focused on making your job easier, our team of tooling engineers and craftsman continually develop and test new and innovative products and techniques for the geotechnical drilling industry – from split spoon sampling, standard penetration testing, and beyond.

Rest assured your purchase of a Geoprobe® geotechnical tooling system will stand the test of time and with same-day shipping on most parts, you can minimize inventory. You’ll be supported by our industry-leading customer service to help troubleshoot sampling techniques or quality concerns.

“You can just grab the interlocking split spoon and drop it into place without a lot of messing with them to get them lined up, which means the helpers can keep pace with the drillers.”
