View Full Version : What do you guys think of a z-plugger?

I was wondering what everyone thinks of a z-plugger for everyday use. I want to put the spreader and sprayer on the unit. I am a sole operator and i really want to grow my business in this area. This would be my only peice of equipment. Would this machine be good to grow a business. It seems to be economical but i was wondering how effective it is?

I have a Z-Plugger & a Z-Spray. The Z-Plugger seems to handle too goofy to put a spreader & sprayer on it. The 3 wheel tricycle setup takes some getting used to. If I could only have one, it would be a Z-Spray with a pull behind aerator. (Ya, you can pull an aerator with a Z-Spray)

I rented one...I got pretty good handling it at the end of the day...I hated it

It's my belief that the tri-wheel design is all wrong for a lawn tool..

So you guys do not like the design of the z-plugger. I thought that it would be the most economical way to go.

If you already own one, you can put the spreader/sprayer attchments on it, but it's not cheap. It's ok to fert/spray with. It does become a pain to swap out the aerator as it's quite heavy. Otherwise, it's great to aerate with. We haven't had any problems with ours.

Could a z-spray pull a pull-behind aerator with limited effort and would that effect the transmission at all. I was just wondering. I am a owner/operator and i am looking for the best bang for my buck.

I LIKE that setup.. :) Is that kind of aerator pretty good about getting up close to houses, and in tight spots?? can you back it into corners?

you can get fairly close to houses, but I still have a walk behind I use for tight spots. but it sure take the work out of aeration!!
