Don’t let challenging soil conditions or frozen ground stop your sampling cold. The Wintex 1000s packs the punch of a hydraulic hammer and the convenience of the Wintex 1000 features for the ultimate in sampling flexibility.
The Wintex probe delivers a homogenous sample—a true picture of your soil’s health, inch by inch. Auger probes, on the other hand, take the majority of their samples from only the soil’s top layer. The specially developed Wintex probe collects approximately 1 lb. of soil with 12-15 cores at a sampling depth of 6", which is the preferred quantity of soil by laboratories.
The addition of a hydraulic hammer allows you to sample even the toughest soils—from heavily compacted soils to frozen ground. Adjust the cylinder pressure for different soil types and conditions.
Electronic Depth Control (EDC) allows the operator to infinitely adjust the depth of the probe by simply adjusting a sensor, which ensures a consistent sampling depth during every cycle.
If a rock or other destructive material causes the machine to reverse before reaching your desired sample depth, the Wintex 1000s automatically discards the core before placing it in the soil box, which saves you the time and hassle of sorting through bad samples.
Each probe sample automatically deposits into the holding box. Easily transfer your core samples to soil lab bags once you’ve gathered your desired number of probes.
Scraper blades clean the probe between every stick so you can take accurate samples in all types of soil—even in extremely dry, freshly tilled, or wet soils.
The Wintex 1000 integrates with your GPS unit to automatically georeference all of your samples, making repeatable, year-to-year sampling seamless and simple. Also use the data to create precise fertility and fertilizer prescription maps to increase productivity in your fields.
