Macro-Core MC5 Soil Sampler

The Industry Work Horse in Soil Sampling!

Our MC5 Soil Sampling System is a single tube, discrete or continuous system with unmatched durability.

The MC5 1.25 in. Center Rod System was designed for the absolute worst of the worst direct push probing conditions. “These are conditions that we normally do not recommend probing in,” according to Mike Carlin, Project Engineer, “so we developed the toughest soil sampling system in the direct push industry ... it’s a brute!”

Advantages of the MC5

  • Robust Thread Design
  • Discrete & Continuous soil sampling
  • Quick Operation (non stop pins required)

Coupled with Light-Weight Center Rods, soil sampling got faster and easier! Times have changed since the first Macro-Core® tooling was developed in 1994.  Machines are larger, hammers are more powerful, and field operators push tool strings deeper into the subsurface.  The formula to meet these demands began with designing a larger MC Sample Tube (increased the OD from 2.125 in. to 2.25 in.)  which led to beefing up the thread design.  These improvements to the already robust Macro-Core® sampler make a great product perform even better in the field.
