Hose Reel optional
Turbo Turf's introduction of the HYBRID series of hydro
seeding units marks a breakthrough in hydro seeding equipment
design. Now there is a unit that combines the best
features of both jet and mechanical systems because it is
both a jet and mechanical unit. It allows quickly
mixing thick slurries of hydro seeding material. The
operator can easily
loading full bales with no breaking up of the bales required.
It has great spray power and the far superior trimming ability
of a jet machine. Clean up is not the big problem it
is with other paddle agitated units. The jets will flush
the whole tank in seconds. There is never a
worry about rust. Many users of other paddle units
avoid using fertilizer in their mix because of the corrosive
nature of the nitrogen in the fertilizer. Turbo
Turf's hybrid does it all with never a worry about rust.
Units with metal tanks have square corners where the sides meet
the end and material builds up in those corners.
Turbo Turf's molded tank has rounded corners which eliminate
material build up.
Turbo Turf's HYBRID has a unique two engine design using two
Honda electric start motors. This allows a far more simple
and trouble free design than other units. The high
pressure centrifugal pump is directly coupled to one engine and
is capable of operating the unit independently as a jet machine.
The second motor uses a simple double v-belt drive to turn the
paddles. This drive is very simple and reliable and
easy to service if there ever is a problem.
Many in the industry saw the concept of a paddle
(mechanically agitated) hydro seeding system using a "PLASTIC"
tank as having great potential. Early attempts by others
involved hanging a bearing on the plastic tank and this approach
did not work well. Turbo Turf took a whole new approach.
The bearings and agitator shaft are supported completely by
heavy structural steel supports and the tank is used for nothing
but holding the material. There is no stress whatsoever on
the tank and the entire mixing system would run without the tank
even being present. This system has now been on the
market for several years without a single failure. The
system is so reliable that Turbo Turf has introduced a 20 year
pro rated tank warranty on mechanical units such as the HYBRID.
The HY-500-HE will seed 6600 square feet per load. It is equipped with an
13 H. P. Honda electric start engine that is directly
coupled to a 3" X 3" high volume, high pressure centrifugal pump
(333GPM / 72 P.S.I.) and
an 8 H.P.
Honda electric start engine that drives an aggressive mixing
paddle. The platform and tower gun are standard
equipment. The hose reel shown above is an option and
available with either electric or manual rewind.
Standard equipment includes 100' of 1 1/2" I.D. hose with free
flow couplings mounted on hose holders on the side of the
tank. It also includes three nozzles ( 1 wide hydro
seeding nozzle, 1 straight distance nozzle, and 1 trim nozzle).
The HY-500-HE has an empty weight of the unit is 1900 pounds. the
loaded weight is 5400 pounds. the physical dimensions are 58"W x
126"L x 83"H. The size of the skid frame is 45"W x
126"L. It will seed an area of 6600 sq. ft. per
load. Maximum materials are 200 pounds of 100%
wood mulch, 240 pounds of paper (cellulose) mulch or 300 pounds
of pelletized mulch. Time to spray a load from the
tower is about 7 minutes with a spray distance of up to 100'
Time to spray a load with the hose is about 10 minutes.
Any seed may be used and any fertilizer including granular,
water soluble or liquid.
