    I am thinking of buying a tow behind drum plugger from a guy I know, selling for $200 (no wheel kit) which makes it a trailer floor nightmare! Is it worth $200
    in like new condition. I've used one a few years ago from Sunbelt Rental, it was the drum kind that can be filled with water or sand for weight.

    Thoughts on these please

    They will damage your trailer plus if you have to cross driveways you run the risk of marking the driveway which would not be a good thing!

    It's identical to the Sunbelt Rentals green drum Plug aerators, except theirs has wheels

    I need to go buy a Sunbelt and see how theirs have the wheel kit installed on it.. I think I'll buy it for now and sell it when I can locate another one.

    No its not worth if its what I think it is, because they just put holes in the ground and don't actually plug which means you are compacting the soil and making it harder for the water to get into the pores and decreasing nutrient availability.
