The AMS 59000 Dynamic Cone Penetrometer Complete is the ultimate tool for evaluating the strength and density of soil in situ. Widely accepted as the most portable method available, this dynamic cone penetrometer is a must-have for any soil analysis professional.

Featuring a 15 lb. (6.8 kg) drive mass that falls from a height of 20 inches (50.8 cm), this powerful tool strikes the anvil with precision, causing the 1.5 inch (3.8 cm) diameter cone with a 45-degree vertex angle to penetrate the soil. The cone is securely seated at the bottom of a pre-augered hole, ensuring accurate results every time.

What sets the AMS 59000 apart is its correlation to N values derived from the Standard Penetration Test (SPT). By measuring the number of blows required to drive the embedded cone to a depth of 1 3/4 inches, you can easily determine the strength and density of the soil. This correlation has been proven by experts in the field, making the AMS 59000 a reliable and effective tool for soil analysis.

Experience has shown that the AMS 59000 is most effective in pre-augered holes to depths of 15 to 20 feet (4.6 to 6.1 cm). However, if you require samples, the cone can be easily replaced with a plated drive tube assembly that allows for the collection of 3-inch by 10-inch (7.6 x 25.4 cm) samples in pre-augered holes. This versatility makes the AMS 59000 suitable for a wide range of soil analysis applications.

The AMS 59000 Dynamic Cone Penetrometer Complete comes with everything you need to get started, including a standard donut-style drive hammer, the 45-degree vertex angle cone with a 3.8 cm diameter, four 2-1/2 ft. extensions, as well as a laminated instruction sheet for easy reference.

Rest assured, the AMS 59000 is made from high-quality materials. The cone is heat-treated to ensure durability, while the components are zinc-plated to protect against corrosion. This ensures that your penetrometer remains reliable and long-lasting, even in harsh environments.

In conclusion, the AMS 59000 Dynamic Cone Penetrometer Complete is the go-to tool for any soil analysis professional. Its accuracy, versatility, and durability make it the perfect choice for evaluating the strength and density of soil in situ.
