TurfMaker - Model 325 - Hydroseeder Machine
The TurfMaker Model 325 hydroseeder, with mechanical agitation, is a cost effective alternative to jet agitation machines. Typically, jet agitation hydroseeders are limited to soupy slurries of paper mulch. Soupy paper mulch applications washout easily with rain and frequently yields spotty seed germination. Poor grass growing results make unhappy customers. The TurfMaker 325 easily mixes and pumps thicker wood mulch slurries associated with Sod Quality Results™ and happy satisfied customers.
The TurfMaker ® 325 fully loaded weighs less than 4,000 pounds and is designed to fit in the back of a standard bed pick-up truck. Getting in and out of tight areas is quick and easy.
- One tank load covers 2,500 sq. ft. with wood mulch applied at 50 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft
- One tank load covers 1,650 sq. ft. with Flexterra® applied at 75 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft.
- One tank load covers 6,000 sq. ft. with paper mulch applied at 25 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft.
The most significant option is the self-filling and clear water hose flushing system.
A 550 gallon plastic tank on a trailer provides an on-board water source for two additional tank loads of application. This combination is capable of three tank loads of application with one trip to the water source. This is almost equal to a 975 gallon machine. A quality mulch application can be completed on a typical home lawn in about an hour.
Jet agitation machine buyers have wasted time on the job, time in their career, and performed poor grass planting services for their clientele, just because they did not know what it takes to produce good results with the hydroseeding process. Spraying colored water is not good business. Providing grass planting services with appropriate applications of quality mulch will produce Sod Quality Results™ nearly every time. This good service results in satisfied customers and good future referral business.
