The new Turbo Turf HM-1000-T is a high performance hydroseeder that will play with the toughest materials and make the hardest job a snap. The aggressive paddle agitation allows you to load full bales of hydro seeding mulch without the need to break them up. The positive displacement Bowie gear pump allows you to spray thick slurries of any hydro seeding or erosion control mulch through up to 500 feet of hose.
Never worry about rust again. Turbo Turf’s poly tank can never rust and comes with a 20 year pro rated warranty. While others scrape, sand and recoat the metal tank on their hydroseeder you can be doing more productive things. The HM-1000-T is designed so that the rugged poly tank serves only as a carrier for the slurry. All moving parts are supported by heavy structural steel which has no contact with the fluids. Turbo Turf’s mixing system is made to last and to have the lowest maintenance requirements of any unit on the market.
The Turbo Turf HM-1000-T is the best value in the industry with standard features like the front loading and spraying platform, the ability to draw water from a pond or stream (suction hose not included). These standard features add thousands of dollars to other hydroseeders. The Turbo Turf HM-1000-T features the best performance and best value in the industry.
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 HM-1000-T.
