The ALU 320 + PFA is a stable, extendible aluminum probe with PFA assembly system.
Thanks to the optimized PFA system, the ALU 320 + PFA is now MORE COMPACT while also offering better handling. The quick-assembly strap makes immediate opening and assembly possible in one motion. In order to determine burial depth and select an optimized shoveling strategy, all our probes have highly legible DEPTH MARKERS and a clear 1 METER MARKER.
