Reinforced Regular Augers

Reinforced Regular Augers AMS
Reinforced regular soil augers are used to obtain disturbed soil samples and bore to depths in difficult lithologies. The bits are open to allow entry of small soil clumps and rocks.

Reinforced Mud Augers

Reinforced Mud Augers AMS
Reinforced mud augers feature two openings in the cylinder wall to facilitate emptying of the collected soil. They have widely-spaced bits to ease entry of moist, sticky soils.

Reinforced Sand Augers

Reinforced Sand Augers AMS
Reinforced sand augers feature a closed bit design with a restricted opening to prevent the loss of the sampled material during retrieval. They are more reliable in loose, unconsolidated soil conditions.

AMS Connection Types

AMS signature series, threaded, and quick connect connections are used to connect AMS cross handles or slide hammers to AMS extensions,auger heads, and samplers. Each connection type has advantages that will make it more appropriate for particular uses or users. Please take into consideration that not all items will be available in every connection type. Contact us if you are unsure which connection type to use.


Helpful Tips for Using Signature Series and Threaded Connections

AMS recommends using non-adhesive fluoropolymer tape and wrench-tightening AMS threaded and signature series connections to help prevent the components from being damaged during heavy use and to minimize wear and tear over time. This also helps prevent threaded components from being difficult to disconnect after use with a slide hammer, hammer-head cross handle, or after hard twisting with a standard cross handle or ratcheting handle.


AMS Signature Series Connections

AMS Signature Series Connections

Signature series components feature a heavier thread than 5/8'' threaded connections. They are generally more robust and last longer under heavy use. Signature components can be connected and disconnected with only 2 1/2 turns, and have less risk of galling. Our most popular slide hammers, augers, core samplers, and soil sampling kits are available with signature series connections.


AMS 3/4'' & 5/8'' Threaded Connections

AMS 3/4'' & 5/8'' Threaded Connections

AMS 5/8'' and 3/4'' threaded connections use standard, national course, threads. 3/4'' are used with the new AMS professional line of augers and samplers. 5/8'' connections are the most
common and least expensive. Augers, core samplers, probes, slide hammers, hammer-head handles, and kits are available with threaded connections.

AMS Quick Connect Connection
AMS Quick Connect Connection

The AMS quick connect button-and-hex coupling system allows components to connect and disconnect faster and with less hassle than threaded or signature series systems. When in use,
the torque exerted on the system is placed on the hex – rather than threads – which makes the quick connect connection durable and prevents the components from binding together. Quick connect connections also allow for reverse augering with either a rubber-coated cross handle or ratcheting cross handle. Most augers and some soil sampling kits are available with AMS quick
connect connections, but the connections are not compatible with AMS slide hammers or the hammer-head cross handle
