The right tool for the job, 11-Jun-2016

Excellent tool. Made a difficult job much easier.

Finally a robust plugger., 09-Jun-2016

Bought this primarily for planting bulbs. Every fall I plant 100 to 200 bulbs. The typical bulb planter really works your wrist. Tried an upright planter only to have it keep bending. So I went back to the old stand by last year. Sore wrist. This plugger is so strong and robust that it should last forever. been using this spring for plugging bared spots in the lawn. I can hardly wait to start on next years bulbs.

Outstanding for its intended purpose. I can see cutting your own plugs and then replanting your own plugs with this perfectly. We used to try to plant square plugs that we purchased and it does not work as well for that. But it does work. I do wish the circle was larger.

NO BACKACHE !!!! STURDY !!!, 04-Jun-2016

got the job done in 1/3 the time! but must importantly my back didn't hurt !! I am so glad I wandered upon this wonderful gadget - I just got it and I've already recommended it to every friend I've talked to. I'm going out right now (the 2ND day) to do more...something I could never do if I was still digging the hole by hand. LOVE IT !!! And it's so sturdy I bet it's going to last forever. Thank you thank you thank you ...

Instructions say to pull straight up, that doesn't work ..., 02-Jun-2016

Instructions say to pull straight up, that doesn't work. You have to tilt it back and break the soil plug, now your talking...

Tips and Troubleshooting: You can break the soil plug free by giving a slight twist of the handlebars after stepping down firmly on the foot peg. Then pull straight up. Empty plugs by turning the ProPlugger upside down.

Handy dandy helper!

Awesome tool! When dirt gets stuck in there, 27-May-2016

Awesome tool! When dirt gets stuck in there, I just soak in water and it loosens up eventually. Cleans well and is easy to handle. Great for those who have bad backs but love gardening.

Works EXACTLY as advertised, 24-May-2016

Don't understand the bad reviews. Ordered this thing expecting the worst. It works EXACTLY as advertised. If you are looking to plant grass plugs, buy it.

Used for plugging, 20-May-2016

Can also be used to plant bulbs. We bought about 200 square feet of sod and used the tool to make plugs and plant them. Each piece of sod is 16x24 inches and made about 90 plugs and I planted the plugs about 6 inches apart. A lot of work but cheaper than covering with just sod. I attached a 10 pound weight to the tool to make it easier to penetrate the ground. ProPlugger is well built and the collars work fine to control the depth of the hole.

works very well

Works well., 18-May-2016

Works well. Bought it to rid my lawn and mulch beds of onion grass. It was quite easy to remove them, including root bulbs. Also transferred some plugs from thick part of my lawn and transplanted in bare spots. Too soon to tell if that will work. All in all, very satisfied.

Great tool, 18-May-2016

This tool saves your back and works just as advertised.

This is the best plugger!, 17-May-2016

This is the best plugger! It worked exactly as described and I was able to plant 75 bulbs quickly and easily. I wish i had it for my previous 200 bulbs!

AWESOME!!!!!!!

limited functionality, 13-May-2016

This looked like it would be perfect for planting the new xeriscape we designed. While it works if you have the perfect clumping soil, it won't work well if you have very sandy soil or dry soil. Our landscapers finished sod cutting last week, so the heavy clay soil was churned up and watered. In spots, it worked well because the soil was fairly moist without being muddy. But the dry/sandy areas just caved right back in.

Very satisfied purchaser., 05-May-2016

I am establishing a Zoyzia lawn with sod plugs and the plan yesterday (Proplugger just arrived) was to put down a few holes just to gauge the ease of use. I finished the front yard (50×55) in little over an hour while spacing the plugs every 12 inches.
This tool makes this process super easy. Well worth the cost after just one use.

Great Tool! Works Well!, 04-May-2016

Love this plugger! Very sturdy tool and works great! A bit more expensive than some others but well worth the extra cost. A real tool for real work!

If you plant bulbs, you need this planter!, 04-May-2016

I would rate this 6 stars if I could. It digs a hole just as advertised. Place it, step on it and remove the plug. Dump the plugs out just as fast as you can turn it over. I use the added movement of leaning outwards around the hole to "wallow" it out. The depth rings are very easy to use, but I do wish there was a clip to store them on the device...
