    I saw it at the Expo last week and wanted it NOW!!!!!!. lol
    But I will run my PL800 for another year and add the 850 after some feedback from the initial buyer/users.

    How are the controls set up for the hydro? Is there enough weight to keep the drive wheels on the ground? How much? THANX and what difference is there from the 800?

    I would suggest writting to plugr and getting their brochure and you can compare them side by side in the literature.

    I ran both the 800 & 850 at the GIE in L'ville. Both do an awesome job. If you do alot of hills, spend the extra on the hydro. It also climbs in the back of your truck nicely. Did y'all see the pull behind the are going to have out later on? Not sure when later on is, but I think the cam system is absolutely the best. Cost...they gave me list from them. Not sure if it's negotiable but worth a try.

    PL850B(6.5 b&s) 30" 3995 #322
    pl850H(5.5 honda) 4245 #355

    You grab the hydro handles, below the handle and they engage. Once going you put down the tines with the control lever on top of the handle. Yes it stays down. When I demoed the soil was rock hard and it drove right on through it.

    The 850 will go through 36" gates the 800 thru 32". Both pop hole patterns of 2.25"W X 8"L. Rated sq. ft is 30K for the 850 & 27,5K for the 800. The 800 runs 2695 for the 6.5 B&S & 2995 for the Honda 5.5. What a value what a deal!

    I talked to plugr rep. today. They told me the front tires are the drive wheels. The wheels are not indepently run .I thought maybe it was a dual hydro to assist in turns. Oh well. They also told me that they are bringing out the pull- behind unit in the spring. It will be 5500.00. I has a Kohler 12 h.p. on it. He said it would be no problem pulling because it propells itself forward. 48" width. electric control to raise and lower tines. and a speed meter to let you know if you are going to fast or to slow.Have to wait and see. The lesco pull- behind for 1300.00 is looking better for the price. I own a plugr and they core awesome.How is the Claussen on pulling plugs?
