Tractor mounted soil sampler

First on the market with a commercial tractor-mounted soil sampler is Concord of Fargo, N. Dak.
"It's fast, accurate and relatively inexpensive," says Virg Mahlum, sales manager. "You can collect up to 30 different samples without leaving the seat of your tractor."
Comes in two models to fit Cat. 1, 11 or 111 hitches: Model 2403 samples to a maximum depth of 24 in. and sells for $950. Mode14803 samples to a depth of 48 in. and sells for $1,345. Cycle time to maximum depth is 15 seconds for the 2403, and 50 seconds for the 4803.
Both models come with two probes one is equipped with a permanent square tip ( in dia.) for sampling wet soils. The other comes with four replaceable stainless steel tips (, 5/8, 11/16 and in. dia.). Soil samples are automatically deposited in a 30-sample container affixed to the sampler near ground level.
