A front-mounted tractor assembly for support of a hydraulic soil core sampler was constructed. The design satisfies requirements for rapid soil or root core sampling. AM essential part of the assembly is a tool bar which allows lateral movement of the mounted core sampler. The assembly with mounted sampler is capable of extracting 1.9 to 10.2-cm diameter cores to depths as great as 125 cm throughout a 102-cm lateral path.
