The 1-2-3 of Machine Productivity
Our feature-rich machines will improve your productivity to get your jobs done faster, which means more profit for you!
1. Instant Loading and Mixing
Load the mulch, seed, and fertilizer as fast as the operators can.
(All materials should be in the tank before the water level reaches 2/3 full).
2. More Mulch Seed and Fertilizer per Gallon of Water
More mulch per tank load results in fewer tank loads to complete a job!
It is accurate to say that with a model 1200 TurfMaker, a job requiring 40 bags of mulch (about an acre) will be completed in four tank loads. With the competitors 1200 machine, applying 40 bags of mulch will take five tank loads. (Depending on lots of circumstances, it might take 30 to 40 minutes per tank load with either machine). All things being equal, it is accurate to say that the TurfMaker will get this particular sized job done in about 4/5 the time. (over a years time, that is a lot of labor time saved).
3. Avoiding Clogs
1. Free-flow hose fittings
2. Positive displacement pump (more pressure, more power)
3. Reamed Free flow nozzles
4. Clear water hose flush system
5. Reversible pump (hydraulic models)
In some cases, a clog can cause you to have to take the machine apart at the job site to clear it. That is a nightmare. In other cases, other machines are very prone to clogging, particularly when loaded too quickly. So avoiding a CLOG is a big deal. The reality, with TurfMaker machines, clogs are seldom a problem. With most other machines, it is.
TurfMaker Hydroseeder Features
Available Hydroseeder Options
Hydraulic or Mechanical Drive
A hydroseeding machine has two primary functions: A mixing paddle system in the tank to mix the slurry of water, mulch, seed, and other ingredients and a pump for pumping the mulch slurry out of the tank for application onto the ground.
TurfMaker machines are designed in such a way that the customer has numerous engine options. Most smaller TurfMaker machines are ordered with gasoline engines. Most larger TurfMaker machines are ordered with diesel engines.
Most Popular TurfMaker Hydroseeder Models
The TurfMaker ® 550 hydroseeder can plant a lot of grass in just a few hours. It is large enough to mix and apply 200 pounds of wood mulch or 300 pounds of paper mulch with one tank load.
The TurfMaker® 1200 hydroseeder is ideal for Sod Quality Results™ applications. A quality-minded contractor can apply wood fiber mulch at heavy rates, along with premium seed, tackifiers, fertilizer, and cover up to 7,500 – 10,000 sq ft. with a tank load.
The TGMI Straw Blower is the leading compact straw blower in the landscape industry and the most widely used for industrial rentals. A straw blower is more efficient than hand-spreading straw. Two people can average 120 bales per hour. It will also reduce the amount of straw required by up to 20%.
