Haglof Increment Borers are classic instruments for fast and reliable results on age and growth control. Haglof Increment Borers are also used to check density and quality of wood, damages and decay, pollution in the environment over time and chemical penetration.
Haglof Sweden increment borers are availabe in a wide variety of sizes, lengths and core diameters for all types of wood and trees. Produced with high quality Swedish Steel with PTFE coating on the borer bit to protect against rust and resin and to reduce friction. The solid borer bit with a barrel-shaped tip ensures an easy start and removal from the tree. All new, improved extractor made from stainless steel with steel cap. A grip-friendly blue handle ensures high performance and durability.
Haglof Increment Borers come in a variety of options of size and models, guaranteeing the correct Haglof borer for each specific application.
Complete Haglof Sweden Increment Borers include handle, PTFE coated borer bit and extractor.
Lengths: Haglof Increment Borers are available in lengths from 100 mm or 4" up to 1000 mm or 39". To obtain maximum bit penetration depth, the borer should be approximately one half of the tree diameter.
Core Diameters: Haglof standard core diameters are 4.3 mm and 5.15 mm (0.169" and 0.200"). Large core diameter borers are often used for measuring the fiber length of wood and for quantitative analyses where larger samples are necessary.
Threading: Haglof Increment Borers are 2- or 3-threaded. The 2-threaded increment borers are appropriate for hardwood, will penetrate the tree deeper. The 3-threaded increment borer engages the wood faster.
