Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DG Poor quality construction, very disappointing
I have been a homeowner, a do-it-yourselfer, and a Home Depot customer for over 20 years, and have usually felt that I got a fair value for my $. Well not this time. If I had been able to examine this product in the store instead of ordering on-line direct, I would NOT have purchased it. Who knows where this thing was manufactured, not USA, and not inspected for quality by Home Depot or anyone else. The material is mild steel, fatigues and bends easily, does not hold a sharp edge, and the cutting box was attached by a SINGLE spot weld on one side. Therefore it flexed and broke after about 20 plugs of fescue in damp, not dry, soil. I certainly did not abuse it, and I feel that I was cheated. I plan to return the product to the store with packaging and paperwork in its sorry as-is condition, and we'll see what customer-service's attitude is...

I bought this online based upon the reviews. I used it for about 15 plugs. It folded over where the pipe is welded to the stepping plate, due to a poor quality weld.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Did not work for me
1/8th of my lawn was eaten by Chinch bugs and I planned to get St.Augustine sods from home depot and plug them using this. But, unfortunately I cannot get this to work. The stuff seems to be really good, but I am 130 pounds and do not have enough strength to press it hard to put a hole using this. May be this is for people who are strong enough. Did not mean to give low stars, but may help others who are skinny, so they can make a choice before buying this product. Had no other option but to return it

I have only used the sod plugger for several days and approximately 150 pluggs, but it appears to be fairly well designed, sturdy enough, and successful. I had no real problems. Sometimes the sod plug wants to stay connected in the ground, so you have to bend the plugger forward, backward a few times to brake loose the plug. most of the time it comes up as intended. pushing the plug back out o the plugger by way of the pin mechanism, can be somewhat tedious over time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MadPost Well worth the money.
Bought a sod plugger from a competitor and was a piece of junk, cheaper than Home Depot but it broke after about 2 trays of use. Saw this one on Home Depot website and looked more sturdy. Ordered it and delivered promptly and quality was very good, have used it about 10 trays worth and not a worry in the world. Very well made and I look forward to it being serviceable for years to come. Very good product well worth the money spent.

We looked all over to find a plugger in a store. With no luck we finally asked at our last available Home Depot and were told they had them online. Ordered it with very little effort, delivered to our door and started using immediately. Very easy to use, built very well and cleans up nicely. We have put approximately 700 plugs in our yard with this tool and have even let our neighbors borrow it after they saw how easy it was to use. No regrets here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jason This plugger does the job!
I spent a lot of money on St augustine sod for my front yard and the sides of the house. I decided to save money and try to propagate sod in the back yard. My original plan was to just let the grass spread naturally but after some research I found out that that would take several years. I found this plugger and decided to try to help the yard along by taking a few plugs from the sod and moving it to the back yard. I have sense then moved over 500 plugs to the back yard and now the St augustine sod is spreading nicely. This plugger is very easy to use and works great. It's actually fun to use instead of hard work. I don't ever write reviews on products but this tool has been such a good investment i figured I needed to let others know that this tool does the job well and is built to last. You can't go wrong with this plugger and you will actually have fun using it.
