Handheld Jackhammer

Background: 

 

Soil sampling can also be carried out using a highly portable jackhammer system. The sample tubes are driven into the ground using a hydraulic hammer and are then retrieved with the use of a compact hydraulic jack which takes its power from the same hydraulic pack used to power the hammer.

This system is ideal for use in sites with restricted access where our conventional window sample rigs are unable to access. Extra long hydraulic hoses can be provided (up to 100 meters) to allow the power pack to be located away from the working area, this could be used to alleviated the problem of exhaust fumes or when working on embankments etc.
