Since 1999 the WINTEX 1000 is the most-sold soil sampler for soil samples up to 25 cm in Europe and in most countries around the word. The WINTEX 1000 works 100% automatic and takes totally homogeneous samples.

The soil sample is taken with a probe and not with an auger. This ensures a completely homogeneous sample being a core of soil which is taken from the adjusted depth. If the sample is taken with an auger, as many other soil samplers do, you will always take more material from the top layers than from the lower layers of soil.

The specially developed probe takes 300-450 g of soil which is the preferred quantity to be used at the laboratories for analysis. The soil sample is automatically filled into a box ready to be sent to the laboratory which means a quick and effective way of getting through work.

The WINTEX 1000 is reliable and extremely user-friendly. All operations are easily carried out from the driver’s seat. The soil sampler only needs minimum maintenance, and the probe is easily replaced. Advanced technology allows the machine to sense a rock or other destructive material beneath the surface and reverses the cycle until the soil sampler again is at a place with free entrance to the soil.

WINTEX 1000 can be delivered from the factory mounted on a Honda TRX 680 Rincon. Mounting the Wintex 1000 on a Honda TRX 680 Rincon ATV, you will have a quick and effective transport and sampling machine for all kinds of ground. At the same time the hydraulic system is integrated into the ATV, which means a quiet machine without needing an extra motor for the soil sampler. The WINTEX 1000 can also be delivered separately for mounting on other vehicles. The soil sampler can be mounted on most vehicles and is easily installed with quick couplings.

If the WINTEX 1000 is used in combination with a GPS positioning system, the soil samples will be geographically registered and can later on be used for variable rate lime and fertilizer maps.
