Sampling soils in landscapes and research plots in urban settings is normally done by band because motorized samplers lack the mobility and small size. To facilitate sampling urban soils, a vehicle-mounted hydraulic sampler was constructed by making minor modifications to commercially available equipment. The unit consists of a hydraulic sampler with self-contained engine and hydraulic pump mounted on the back of a turf utility vehicle. Soil cores are taken with a 32 mm diam. ✕ 0.46 m long slotted tube. Samples can be taken to 1.2 m depth.
