Direct push soil sampling tools do not remove cuttings from the probe hole but depend on compression of soil or rearrangement of soil particles to permit advancement for the soil probe rod tool string. The soil probe rod and sampling tools are advanced as far as possible using only the static weight of the carrier vehicle. Percussion is applied as required when advancing soil probe rod through sands, gravels, hard pans, high friction clays, tills, fill materials, and surface frost.
