The TurfMaker ® Model 380 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 and frequently yields spotty
seed germination. Poor grass growing results make unhappy customers. The
TurfMaker ® 380 easily mixes and pumps thicker wood mulch slurries
associated with Sod Quality Results™ and happy satisfied customers.
The TurfMaker ® 380 is a complete 380 gallon hydroseeding machine
with mechanical agitation and a positive displacement pump. Normal mulch
loading is 125 lbs of 100% wood mulch, 150 lbs of any Bonded Fiber Matrix
product or 200 lbs of paper mulch. The hydroseeder comes ready to use,
equipped with 100 feet of hose and three hose application nozzles.
When applying wood mulch products at moderate application rates with
a TurfMaker ® 380 hydroseeder, one full tank load will cover about
2,500 sq. ft. When applying Bonded Fiber Matrix products at recommended
application rates, one tank load will cover about 1,500 sq. ft. Paper
mulch products can be applied at typical jet agitation machine application
rates and one tank load will cover about 8,000 sq. ft. Most TurfMaker
® operators seldom make soupy, paper mulch applications.
When water is readily available for quick filling, a TurfMaker ®
380 hydroseeder will easily produce three tank loads of application in
one hour. When applying quality wood mulch products, along with tackifiers
for Sod Quality Results™, three tank loads will cover from 6,000
sq. ft. to 7,000 sq. ft. Jet agitation machines, due to difficulty of
loading and clogging, seldom get as much as one tank load per hour, and
that tank load is applying soupy paper mulch.
For really small jobs or small touch-ups, a TurfMaker ® 380 hydroseeder
will mix partial loads. A 50 lb bag of 100% wood mulch can be mixed with
135 gallons of water and cover about 1,000 sq. ft. A 50 lb bag of any
Bonded Fiber Matrix product can be loaded with 125 gallons of water and
cover about 500 sq. ft. A 40 lb bag of paper mulch can be mixed with 80
gallons of water and cover up to 3,000 sq. ft.
The TurfMaker ® 380 hydroseeder has all the features found on standard
hydroseeding machine. However, it is missing some of the super features
found on most TurfMaker hydroseeder. The most significant of these options
is the self-filling and clear water hose flushing system. This system
can be added to the Model 380 for $530. This add-on option is a great
investment and highly recommended. Other additional features include 200’
of TurfMaker ® hose and storage reel, a long life pump, and various
engine upgrades. Any of these additional features can be added at any
time before or after your purchase.
The TurfMaker ® 380 hydroseeder provides a cost effective alternative
to jet agitation machine. Many jet agitation machine buyers have wasted
money, 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.
