Sturdy, well made in USA. Cut through my thick Zoysia grass with ease and pulled out plug after plug, easily 5-6 a minute. Once the tube fills up with plugs you just turn it over and pour them into a container. The top of the tube is a bit wider than the ground end so there is no resistance (except maybe when it is very wet) they just pour out. I will be using this frequently.
The Proplugger worked great! Planted a large section of bulbs in my backyard 2 weeks ago and they are already coming up. My neighbor borrowed it to plant some bulbs in his yard also. We live in Katy, Tx. It has clay dirt and the plugger cut through the grass and dirt so we could lay the bulbs. Thank you for making this product.
Great tool for making "plugs" of grass/sod to move around ..., 12-Jul-2014
Great tool for making "plugs" of grass/sod to move around your lawn to repair bare spots. As a 50-something woman, I appreciate not having to kneel, bend and work my arthritic hands so hard to do this task. This Plugger really does make it quick and easy to cut neat plugs and holes. Even my 18 year old willingly helped in order to play with this new tool.
Good for established yards but nod sod sheets., 08-Jul-2014
This works great for removing plugs from yard for sod. It does not however work well when cutting plugs from sod. I had a substantial amount of trouble cutting plugs from the xeon zoysia sod sheets, so I ended up using sod on the entire yard. This tool will work well next year if I need to take plugs to allow grass to fill in where the sod did not take by transplanting plugs from established portion of yard.
I finished plugging up my lawn with Sapphire St.Augustine lawn plugs last weekend., 02-Jul-2014
I finished plugging up my lawn with Sapphire St.Augustine lawn plugs last weekend. The tool works great. I put down 28 plugs within an hour in 90 degree temperature while using this tool. It would probably have taken me longer with this tool. I recommended this tool to anyone who is planning to put down lawn plugs as their future lawn project.
watched the proplugger video before using it, and got good results just like those shown in the video. it is a little difficult to remove the ring at the bottom after digging, but it can be hammered off with a rubber mallet.
This is a piece of crap. It works ok for making the holes for the sod but it would not cut the St. Augustine sod. I could not get to make the nice cuts like the video on U-tube. It would return it but I have thrown the box away that it came in.
(ProPlugger Representative). The 5-IN-1 is not recommended for cutting plugs from St Augustine sod (as our listing on Amazon as well as our website state). Please contact us on our website to return your tool for a refund.
I knew the ratings were good before I ordered this, but it beat my expectations. It does a GREAT job and the plugs come our the top of the plugger as advertized. I am using it currently on bare soil to put out grass plugs. I have not used it on grassy areas yet. When my new grass gets established I will be using it to make my own plugs for other parts of my yard. I am SO glad I made this purchase. Now that I've used it I would not want to be without it. When it comes time to plant bulbs this is going to make my life so much easier.
This is a must have tool for any lawn nut. It makes pulling and installing plugs super fast and easy with being able to stack them in the tube. Bare spots are a thing of the past in my law. One of the purchase since my reel mower.
