Yes...very true. The hydro plugr 850/855 have the added advantage of using the hydro front drive as a brake to really pulverize the soil to the point of the turf layer actually lifting up and off the ground. Tough to explain but easy once experienced. Plugrs are an ideal tool for renovations And over seeding. It seems when ever someone is getting out of the renvation business a Lawn Solutions seeder and plugr 850 are both for sale at the same time. EBay, lawnsite etcetera.

I belive the plugr 800 and 600 are as equally as slow. My plugr 850 is a Tad faster than the lawn solutions WB 21 and it has a wider effective path and can make much quicker hard and quick 90 degree turns.
