AGVISE - Model 24 - Electric and Hydraulic Soil Sampling System (Complete Unit)
This hydraulic sampling system is designed to collect 0-6″ and 6-24″ soil samples. The system is powered by an electric over hydraulic power system. The full cycle time for the system is 10-12 seconds (down and up). This system will push through about 10-15 inches of frost when mounted inside the truck cab. This system is designed to be mounted inside the cab of a truck, but it can also be mounted outside if you prefer. The 30″ cylinder is already mounted on a channel iron. To mount the cylinder inside the cab, find an area 6″ by 6″ where the soil probe can go through between the frame and the exhaust system of the truck. Then cut a 6″ by 6″ hole in the floor of the truck.
Bolt a cross member to both sides of the frame, just to the side of the hole above. Then put the cylinder through a 6″ hole in the floor and bolt the channel iron to the cross member. Place the 6″ hole as close to the driver as possible so he doesn’t have to reach very far to attach the soil probe to the cylinder. The power unit should be attached to the floor in the box of the truck. The power unit can also be installed in the cab under the back seat. Hoses should run from the power unit to the cylinder through the hole in the floor of the cab. Be sure to use quicktatch couplers on the hoses so the cylinder and the power unit can be easily removed and stored in a dry area for the winter. This sampling system includes the 12-volt power system with controls and power cables, a 30″ hydraulic cylinder attached to a channel iron, 2 stainless steel probe bodies (one slotted and one solid), two screw on tips (one wet and one ¾” soil tip), 1 heavy duty oversize probe body and tip and a cleaning brush and handle. Additional parts included are spare electric solenoid, spare hydraulic solenoid and spare two button control box.
