The Z-Plug is the first stand-on, zero-turn aerator. Its revolutionary design addresses the slow and labor intensive job of aeration.

Powered by a 18 hp Vanguard Commercial with ground speeds up to 8 M.P.H., the Z-Plug can cover over 60,000 square feet per hour and produce 2 to 3-1/2” core depth. The full floating tine head with down pressure can maneuver around trees and beds while engaged. A 2000 lbs. hydraulic lift picks the tine head up in 2.5 seconds. Our Quick Attach System makes removing and mounting attachments simple. This also allows for 30 degrees of pivot left to right for steering in the down position. Our patent pending locking caster system makes hills a breeze.

Several different attachments are available making the Z-Plug a very versatile machine:

120 lb hydraulic drive spreader that can vary spread widths from 3 to 25 feet.

20 gallon spray system with an 8’ spray pattern and a 25’ coil hose.

36” Slice seeder with Gandy drop box. Adjustable height knives, star tine perforation buries the seed.

36” De-thatch rake

52” Snow plow


36" and 46" tine heads
70 lbs and 100 lbs individual weight blocks
3/4" hardened tine
Up to 3 1/2" core depth
