The TurfMaker ® 430 hydroseeder can mix and apply up to 175 pounds
of wood mulch or 250 pounds of paper mulch with one tank load in less
than 20 minutes. When making applications for Sod Quality Results, 100%
wood fiber mulch should be applied at a rate of 50-75 pounds per 1,000
square feet. When providing typical hydroseeding, 10,000 square feet can
be easily covered with one tank load. Note that 100% wood fiber mulch
applied at thicker rates always produces better and more reliable results.
The TurfMaker ® 430 hydroseeder is powerful enough to pump thick
mulch slurries through as much as 500 feet of hose, and then project the
mulch slurry more than 75 feet from the end of the hose. With this power
and mulch handling capacity, the TurfMaker® 430 hydroseeder can apply
more mulch, and plant more area per hour, than significantly larger jet
agitation machines. It is not necessary to use a lot of water to apply
a lot of mulch with a TurfMaker ®.
The TurfMaker ® 430 hydroseeder, equipped with the optional clear
water system, can fill itself from an auxiliary water tank without ever
leaving the job site. This saves numerous trips to a fire hydrant or some
other appropriate water source. The auxiliary water tank can be continuously
filled with two garden hoses, and supply the water needed for three or
four tank loads per hour. When a high volume water source is not close
by, the TurfMaker ® 430 hydroseeder can actually work faster and apply
more mulch per hour than larger mechanical agitation machines.
The TurfMaker ® 430 hydroseeder will actually fit into the bed of
a pickup truck. With one bag of wood mulch, along with seed and fertilizer,
this mixture will likely be 130-140 gallons resulting in the loaded machine
weighing about 2,600 lbs. When filled to capacity, the total weight may
exceed the truck’s carrying capacity. The machine can also be used
on a flat bed truck or a small utility trailer. With this compactness
and versatility, the TurfMaker ® 430 hydroseeder can be taken into
places larger machines can’t go.
When premium grasses such as Tifway 419 are called for, the TurfMaker
® 430 will even perform hydrosprigging. No need to lay sod with a
lot of labor. Tifway 419 is ideal for sports fields, golf course fairways,
and for homeowners wanting beautiful, easy-to-care-for, and durable turf.
It’s not even necessary to find a sod grower willing to cut sprigs.
All TurfMakers ® can perform hydrosprigging utilizing the new patented
Vegetative Planting Technology.
