The big sampler described is about 80 cm high, heavy and mainly used for agricultural soils. The cylindrical sampling portion consists of 2 longitudinal halves held together by a metal bar provided with a hook. The metal bar is also used to push the tool into the soil. The cylindrical portion contains a plastic ring which is 10 cm high and 59 mm wide, and can be easily introduced into, or removed from, the sampler. Two plastic covers close the soil sample in the ring. The small sampler is about 30 cm high, light and was developed mainly for soils located in mountains far away from roads and highways. The plastic ring is introduced from above and kept in the sampler by a movable metal bar.
