Great Tool for Planting, 04-Dec-2013
Ingenious design and sturdy. You can plug multiple holes and they move up the pipe since it is tapered slightly. I went around an untilled area in my yard making holes and grabbing the plugs as they popped out the top. This is made very well and I can see it lasting for years--and it will get a lot of use.
Very good design, works as advertised, 04-Dec-2013
Excellent design, plug end narrower than holding tube, to prevent wedging of plugs. The tube holds the plugs, 16 or so depending on how you set the depth.
Awesome bulb planter, 25-Nov-2013
This thing is very sturdy and a beast. Even in dry-ish, gravelly dirt, it works wonderfully. I highly recommend this tool to anyone. For larger bulbs like daffodils, I had to make two holes, but not a big deal.
Super fast sod planting tool., 22-Nov-2013
This tool is a great way to plug a lawn. Is super easy to use and works quickly. I was a bit skeptical at first when seeing videos of how easy the dirt plugs dump out of the top of the plugger when turned upside down, but it really works just as advertised.
The last plug might get stuck every once in awhile, but that's easy enough to push out with your fingers. Clean up is easy and project is light.
I used this to cut plug holes in my barren backyard and also used the plugger to cut plugs from the grass flats I had purchased.
This thing works great, 21-Nov-2013
Seriously, this thing worked great planting daffodils. Did 50 in less that an hour. Wish my ground was softer and had less rocks, but that's not this tools fault. I got the larger size and I'm glad I did, because the bulbs needed the extra large hole. It worked just like the video and description said it would. Heavy steel, it's going to outlast me for sure.
Lots of bulbs, buy it., 20-Nov-2013
Great for planting bulbs. Also, easy to snatch bulbs from around the yard for transplanting. Very well made. Solid construction. Lifetime tool.
My ProPlugger proved to be the perfect tool for the job., 19-Nov-2013
...In the process of laying two pallets of Compadre Zoysia sod, I observed that sand does not retain moisture very well, especially with the almost always constant wind on the outer banks. So prior to my laying any further sod, I wanted to address that issue by introducing moisture/nutrient retaining organic material into the sandy soil while minimally disturbing the soil surface. It was at this point that I discovered the ProPlugger and Coco Peat. My ProPlugger proved to be the perfect tool for the job. The "work" was more tedious that it was hard. Remember we're talking sand here. Using the ring that allows a 4" depth, I punched approximately 3300 holes about 8" apart in an area of 1400 SF. Now my yard will be better prepared for the next 3 pallets of sod. Once established I will then use my ProPlugger to cut and transplant plugs to other areas. Maybe you should change "ProPlugger 5 in 1" to "ProPlugger 6 in 1"!
Makes easy work of cutting holes in packed soil., 19-Nov-2013
What a great tool. Heavily built, you just stomp on it to cut plugs. They accumulate in the tube, and about every 10 plugs you empty it out. The bottom of the tube is graduated in diameter, so the plugs really do just slide out. Usually I find an auger tool more convenient in loose soil, but if your soil is a bit packed, this tool really does the job. Max plug depth is 6"
Not the grass regenerator I expected, unfortunately, 14-Nov-2013
You know that movie 'Caddyshack' where Bill Murray is being a pervert and staring at the old ladies on the course, carving out a golf hole for the golf balls to go into on the green? That's what this is originally used for. So if you're getting it to save money for grass plugs, don't do it. It's far too small to regenerate grass. It's golf ball sized. This needs to be much wider than this because in the end I only see a few bits of grass in the plug after I've cut it out of its patch in the ground. They all die in the end. I'm not about to buy some cocoa things or whatnot from the seller, keeping me even more dependent on some business. Oh, also---if you need to plant bulbs, this is probably great for that too. It does work well by not getting too badly clogged like others do I guess, based on those reviews...
The ProPlugger is a MUST for any gardener!!, 12-Nov-2013
I LOVE this tool! I had over 100 bulbs to plant this season. I planted the first 25 or so with a hand bulb planter and it took me over 2 hours. It broke and I had blisters all over my right palm. I decided to order the ProPlugger and am SO glad I did! It is well built and very sturdy. It worked exactly as promised and was easy to clean up afterward. I planted the remaining 75 bulbs with the ProPlugger and it took just over an hour and it was easy! I can't say enough about this product! Hands down one of the best lawn & garden purchases I have ever made.
One of the more well thought designs of recent time. Easy to use and makes perfect plugs. All it needs is an attached bottle opener.
Switching from fescue to zoysia, November 3, 2013, 03-Nov-2013
Best yard tool I have bought in years. I'm in my 3rd years of transitioning to zoysia from Fescue on a budget. This has made a huge difference and accounted for my single most productive year.
Fantastic tool!, 03-Nov-2013
I used this tool to plant 300+ daffodil and hyacinth bulbs this fall. It works just as advertised even in my hard clay soil. Simply step and twist to remove a plug of soil and flip upside down and the plug slides out. I LOVE it!
Awesome multi-purpose tool, 01-Nov-2013
It arrived earlier than promised. The packaging was good, so it arrived in perfect condition. I haven't a chance to actually use it yet because of the rain in our area, but I plan to use it this weekend. The tool looks extremely well-made and very durable. Years ago when we plugged zoysia grass, we were provided a plugging tool with our order. That plugger was adequate for the job, but if we had had this one, our work would've been cut in half. This one looks like it will last forever, plus it's a multi-tasker. Can't wait to plant my pansies and daffodils this weekend, and I'll be using this to plug zoysia in the spring.
Impressive help in planting bulbs, 01-Nov-2013
I am almost 73 years old with two knee replacements. With this wonderful tool, I planted approximately 150 bulbs by myself and without a problem. The ProPlugger is also made with great quality. I had tried a different brand that broke right away with the first use. No such problem with the ProPlugger. It will last for years.
Cheap and hefty, 31-Oct-2013
Cheap and hefty. But since I wanted to plant bulbs in beds which were near to trees and tiny shrubs, the roots made use of this weapon very difficult. If I had the strength and youth of a football pro, I could perhaps have found this useful, but mine was used for a couple of dozen bulbs, and then I just gave up.
5-in 1 plant ing tool, 28-Oct-2013

Works Like Butter - Wow!, 26-Oct-2013
Received quickly, good packaging, heavyweight, solid tool. I was skeptical that this plugger would do all it said, but I just dug 100 plugs in under an hour, and I am probably the most out of shape person in the world. Ok, maybe not the world, but not in-shape at all. Step on it with one foot, put your weight on it with a little twist, and bingo, that sucker pops right out of there - no kidding. It took about 10 holes to get the hang of it, but once I did, wow! The dirt dumped out like it was hand scooped in there, once it was full. Couldn't believe it. I have clay soil too, I must mention. It is the bane of my existence. The great thing is, I need some backfill under my deck, so I just dump it right from the plugger under the deck, and will fill my holes with rich garden soil. I have 400 bulbs to plant this weekend, and it is 9:30 Sat am, and I am 1/4 of the way done. I would have paid much more for this beauty. Priceless.
Good tool for plugging buffalo grass, 24-Oct-2013
It's a little awkward to use , yet I was still able to install 15 plugs in minutes. I found if you had bucket water nearby , you could dunk it in water to clear it .
a great garden tool!, 22-Oct-2013
This simple but effective tool is a great addition to my garden tools. So easy to use, I wonder why I didn't think of this?? Great for removing weeds, and also for planting. A "do it all" tool if there ever was one!
