AMS Pocket Penetrometer

Determines the Rate of Compaction for Any Soil

The small but accurate AMS Pocket Penetrometer is ideal for agronomists or anyone evaluating soil conditions and slope stability. Spring-operated mechanism measures compressive soil strength to 4.5 tons/sq. ft. or kg/sq. cm by pushing a 1/4"-dia. loading piston into the soil to a depth of 1/4". Compressive load is shown on a scale on the piston barrel. A friction ring indicates maximum reading. Made of anodized aluminum. Includes an Allen wrench and a red plastic carrying case with instructions printed on it in white.
