The TurfMaker® 800 Hydroseeder

The Ideal Machine for Any Job — Large or Small !

The TurfMaker ® 800 hydroseeder is large enough to provide thick wood mulch applications on small home lawn sites, or thin “hydro-seeding” applications on as much as 25,000 square feet.  Either tank load can be loaded, mixed, and applied in less than thirty minutes. In addition, up to as many as 20 tank loads can be applied in a normal workday, assuming water for re-filling is readily available. Availability of water is never a problem with a TurfMaker ® 800. The best productivity is usually accomplished utilizing a fire hydrant for loading. However, when a fire hydrant is not available, the machine can fill itself from an auxiliary water tank using the exclusive TurfMaker ® self-filling system.

The TurfMaker ® 800 hydroseeder, with its powerful, direct-drive mechanical agitation system can quickly mix up to 325 pounds of 100% Wood Fiber Mulch or up to 500 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 product that also makes the slurry extremely slick, reducing or eliminating clogs completely. Slicky Sticky ® also increases moisture retention and enhances seed germination.

The TurfMaker ® 800 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. The TurfMaker ® 800 hydroseeder is large enough to cover a lot of area with one tank load, and small enough to be taken into places larger machines can’t go. It provides fast and efficient performance with wood mulch for the quality-minded landscaping contractor.
