Turbo Turf's introduction of the HYBRID series of hydro seeding
units marks a breakthrough in hydro seeding equipment design.
The HYBRID series combines the best features of both jet
and mechanical systems because it is both a jet and
Turbo Turf's HY-750-HE will mix very thick slurries including
some of the harder to use materials. The Hybrid is easy to
load. Full bales of paper, wood or blended mulch can be
added and there is no need to break the mulch up. 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 3" x 3" 333 GPM, 72
PSI, high pressure centrifugal pump is directly coupled to
13 H.P electric start Honda engine and is capable of operating
the unit independently as a jet machine. The second motor,
another 13 H.P electric start Honda uses a double v-belt drive
to power 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.
comes with 100' of 1 1/2" discharge hose with free flow
couplings, a gun and three nozzles
( 1 wide hydro seeding nozzle, 1 straight distance nozzle, and 1
trim nozzle). The empty weight of the unit is 1900 pounds. the
loaded weight is 5900 pounds. the physical dimensions are 75"W x
142"L x 90"H. The size of the skid frame on this unit is 48"W x
HM-750-HE is ideal for a landscaper doing residential and
commercial seeding with average jobs of 6,000 to 40,000 square
feet. It is capable of handling much larger jobs. When hydroseeding
large areas, a seeding rate of 3-4 acres per day is possible
with a good water source. Time to spray a complete tank is about
14 minutes from the hose or 5 minutes from the platform gun . Mixing time is 2-5 minutes depending on material.
This unit comes with 100' of discharge hose. It will easily
handle up to 250' of hose. The spray distance with the
straight nozzle is approximately 50'. The spray distance with an
Area/Volume kit (2" cannon) is 100'.
Typically materials used in one load would be 6 bales of hydroseeding mulch, the appropriate amount of seed for
ft. (any seed will work in hydroseeding), and the appropriate
fertilizer for 10,000 square feet (liquid, water soluble, or
Pull type $ 17,395.00
