Why SoilHawk?

SoilHawk™ helps farmers save on labor and avoid inaccurate soil tests by allowing one person to easily obtain accurate, pure soil samples from hundreds of acres per day.

SoilHawk was designed by Jim Case, a farmer who needed an automated sampling device. He researched the market and couldn’t find anything that met his basic criteria.

So he designed SoilHawk with these criteria in mind:

Save time and labor: SoilHawk is remotely operated by the driver so one person can easily sample hundreds of acres per day.

Consistently gather highly accurate soil samples: SoilHawk has a patent pending scraper that automatically removes surface organic material down to clean dirt as it probes the soil. This allows for the probe to remove a clean soil core without undue surface contamination that might skew the testing results.

Adjustable probing depth: SoilHawk probing depths are very simple to adjust and set.

Easily sample hundreds of acres per day: You can sample up to 3 probes per minute!

SoilHawk has 30 color-coded bag holders on a conveyer belt that allow one person to gather 30 sets of soil samples automatically with no need to exit the vehicle between samples.

Each bag holder holds a paper soil sample bag. To set up your next 30 - simply put the full bags into the storage cabinet and load 30 more empty bags into the bag holders. You can do this as many times as you’d like before finishing up for the day.

Keep zone or grid samples separated: The soil sample bags are placed into color-coded bins. These bins make it easy to keep the samples separated.

Easily transported: SoilHawk’s built-in trailer is made from rust-free aluminum and has floater tires. It can be towed by virtually anything that has a trailer hitch.

Additional Features: SoilHawk also features a built-in camera to see the probe site while probing and a sensor that causes the probe to abort if it hits something solid such as a rock.
