    Abstract

    High quality undisturbed soil samples can be obtained by hand cutting methods. However, the procedures currently used are tedious, time consuming, and may not yield acceptable results in certain soil types. A procedure using a chain saw with a specially fabricated chain has been developed and field tested. The procedure has been shown to provide quality samples of a variety of materials in much less time than would be required using coventional methods.
