Soil Borings & Classifications

NP&V utilizes two (2) Power Probe sampling apparatus’ that have both direct push and auger capabilities. The 9100 unit, mounted on a Bobcat MT-52, is a small versatile unit that is utilized to collect soil and groundwater samples in restricted space environments. This unit can be taken into wooded areas without having to clear a path and inside buildings through 36 inch doorways. The 9600 unit, situated on a Ford F-550 flatbed truck, is a heavy-duty machine which can go deeper than the 9100 and utilizes larger augers allowing the installation of larger groundwater wells at deeper depths. The 9600 unit also has an Auto Drop Hammer which is utilized to obtain “blow counts” needed for geotechnical information.
