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 visible and near-infrared range, along with soil EC and insertion force sensing. It uses the same software and spectrometers as the Veris VIS-NIR Shank system--extending the capability of VIS-NIR technology into the soil profile. 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 VIS-NIR-EC-Force sensors provide unmatched soil profile information. The VIS-NIR spectrometers collect optical measurements 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.
