    having trouble pulling good plugs with my z plug, it is the new zplug with the front caster wheels. Anyone else having this problem, i've tried taking weights out also with no luck. It just seems like it pushes the dirt in creating a hole but not pulling out many plugs. My Ryan five aerator out pulls it by far.

    Sounds like the ground is too moist, lots of down pressure being applied if the ground is to soft that's what will happen. We have noticed we pull our best plugs when ground is actually dry.

    What do the inside of your tines look like. Rough and rusty cores may not pass thru thus plugging the tine. To polish the tine up you can put a 12 guage shotgun bore brush in a drill and clean the tines out.
