P4000 Pickup Truck Mount

VisWhether you’re collecting soil cores, measuring compaction, or characterizing soil profiles—the Veris line of hydraulic probes has the technology to meet your needs. The Veris 4-Sensor probe acquires spectral measurements in the Infrared and Red range, along with soil EC and insertion force sensing.  Choose either a tractor-mounted or truck-bed skid mount. Both feature 54” (137 cm) stroke cylinders, hydraulic side-shift, convenient controls, and heavy-duty construction.


The IR/Red-EC-Force sensors provide unmatched soil profile information. The optical measurements are collected through the sapphire window on the side of the probe as it moves into the soil profile. At the bottom of the probe is a cone-tip with soil EC contacts—for collecting dipole EC data. A load cell measures the insertion force required to push the probe into the soil. The heavy-duty probe is constructed of 1”(2.54 cm) diameter probe rod.
