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. Jobs requiring near perfect results are made with hose applications and usually take about 45 minutes per tank load.

Typical roadside hydro-seeding applications can be made from the tower. One tank load can cover as much as an acre with a thin application of paper mulch. This type of application is not recommended where highly reliable results are required.
