TurfMaker - Model 1000 - Hydroseeder Machine
The TurfMaker 1000 hydroseeder can cover large areas with a single tank load. When making thin applications on budget-sensitive jobs, paper mulch can be used to cover as much as an acre with one tank load. When going for Sod Quality Results™, a quality minded contractor can use 100% wood fiber mulch applied at heavy rates and cover 6,000-8,000 sq ft.
When making applications with the hose, up to as many as 15 tank loads can be applied in a normal workday, assuming water for re-filling is readily available. When making hydro-seeding applications from the tower, and with water readily available, it would not be unreasonable to apply 25 tank loads in a day.
The most common water source for re-filling is usually a near-by fire hydrant. When a fire hydrant or some other appropriate source of water is not available, a TurfMaker ® can be equipped with an optional self filling system to fill the tank with water from an auxiliary water tank. Water can also be brought to the machine with a water truck. On job sites where water is some distance away, using an auxiliary water tank or a water truck can substantially reduce the total time on the job.
The powerful, direct-drive mechanical agitation system quickly mixes up to 400 pounds of 100% Wood Fiber Mulch or up to 600 pounds of shredded paper in one tank load. With the positive displacement pump, thick mulch slurries can be pumped through up to 500 feet of hose, and then spray more than 75 feet from the end of the hose. For the best and highest quality applications, tackifiers are always recommended. Slicky Sticky ® is a leading erosion control tackifier that makes slurries extremely slick, reducing or eliminating clogs. Slicky Sticky ® also increases moisture retention and enhances seed germination.
The TurfMaker ® 1000 hydroseeder can be mounted on a heavy duty flat bed truck, on a heavy-duty utility trailer, or can be purchased on the custom heavy duty two axle trailer shown above.
