Hands down G6/G5 Oregon gators are the best.thus far in separating the dirt from OM. absolutely destroy the plugs. Just be sure to use a chute deflector.

I broke my own front window last year skipping the chute.deflector.

So are you saying that you do 1" plugs??? This strategy deals only with living thatch???

I've never heard of anyone doing 1" plugs, and I'm interestted in understanding,,, Why...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
