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. In addition, it is fast
enough to mix and apply as many as four tank loads per hour. The area
planted with one tank load can range from 2,000 to 15,000 square feet,
depending on the mulch thickness applied to the ground. Thicker and better
mulch applications almost always provide more reliable results.
The TurfMaker ® 550 hydroseeder is powerful enough to pump a thick
mulch slurry through 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 ® 550 hydroseeder can often apply
more mulch, and plant more area per hour, than significantly larger machines.
It is not necessary to use a lot of water to apply a lot of mulch.
The TurfMaker ® 550 hydroseeder does not need a high volume water
source, such as a fire hydrant for filling. This machine can use water
from an auxiliary water tank, and fill itself without ever leaving the
job site. The auxiliary water tank can fill continuously with two garden
hoses, and supply enough water for three or four tank loads per hour.
When a high volume water source is not close by, the TurfMaker ® 550
hydroseeder can actually work faster and apply more mulch per hour than
even a 3,000 gallon machine.
The TurfMaker ® 550 hydroseeder is small enough to mount on a flat
bed truck along with an auxiliary water tank, or it can mounted on a utility
trailer. It will even fit inside the bed of a pick up truck. If weight
is a problem, the machine will satisfactorily mix and pump as little as
125 gallons of slurry. With this compactness and versatility, the TurfMaker
® 550 hydroseeder can be taken into places larger machines can’t
Planting premium hybrid grass varieties requiring vegetative planting
is easy with any TurfMaker ®. Landscape contractors can offer Tifway
419 to their most discriminating homeowners, sports field managers, or
golf course superintendents. This grass makes a beautiful and durable
turf found on most of finer golf courses in the south. In addition to
hydro-sprigging, the TurfMaker ® 550 hydroseeder is the first machine
to utilize the new patented Vegetative Planting Technology.
