    Comments about Agratronix Soil Compaction Tester:

    This product is very comparable to the Dicky John version and offers a couple of features that I liked better, such as the tip storage on the handle. The only downside was that the packaging could have been a bit better. It arrived with the retention ring off, but in working condition.
