AGVISE Laboratories distributes JMC and KHS hand soil sampling equipment. We have sold equipment from both manufacturers for many years and have found them to be very durable (see pictures and descriptions below).  The JMC “Backsaver Handle” allows you to sample to over 46” by hand with the extension shaft in the handle. JMC sample tube lengths available are 12”, 15” and 18”. The JMC cleaning tool is great for cleaning the probe tube in muddy conditions. It will really save your fingers when cleaning the tip. AGVISE also stocks the 8” model of the KHS probe. This is a great hand probe if you will only be collecting 8” soil samples.

No bending over when pulling from the ground. The hand grip stays near your waist level throughout the sampling procedure. The extension shaft inside the handle allows the user to collect deep samples by going down the same hole multiple times to retrieve deeper sample depths. JMC Sampling tubes of 12”, 15”, and 18” can be used with this handle.
