If you are referring to a machine that installs the plugs....then not that I am aware of however you can pick one of these up at home depot or lowes generally.

I own one because it is a quick sale to the customer that is to impatient to allow a area that experienced damage and really does not justify a sod installation (Pallet). They are simple to install as you might gather, you just stomp on the plugger, pull the handle up and it cuts out a perfect little 4 inch square...the same size as a plug.

It comes in handy when installing lots of asiatic jasmine as they are generally plugs in the same 4 in square when sold in flats.
