The HM-500-HARV-E hydroseeder is a basic workhorse machine capable of of handling heavy slurries of the most demanding products including 100% wood mulches, BFM’s FGM’s and other hard to spray erosion control mixes. It is also capable of spraying plant parts such as sprigs. With the positive displacement Bowie gear pump it can push those very heavy slurries through very long lengths of hose. Up to 400′. The hydraulic powered and reversible aggressive paddle mixing system allows for mixing the heaviest slurries possible.
The HM-500-HARV-E, is a 500 Gallon Hydro Seeding System with mechanical (paddle) agitation. It is available as both a skid type and a pull type system. It will seed 6600 square feet per load. It is equipped with an 23.5 H. P. Kohler Command Pro electric start engine, a hydraulically driven paddle agitation that is reversible and also has adjustable speed. It has a hydraulically driven reversible Bowie gear pump.
One of the many advantages of the HARV-E is the poly tank which allows much faster clean up and will eliminate the major problem with mechanical units, “Rust” The HM-500-E, like a jet unit offers far superior trimming ability to many mechanical units.
The HM-500-HARV-E has a long life poly tank that eliminates rust and makes clean up quick and easy. The aggressive paddles allow It to mix heavy slurries of any hydro seeding materials including Bonded Fiber Matrix products (BFM’s) Flexible Growth Media (FGM’s) and Stabilized Mulch Media’s (SMM’s) and 100% wood mulches.
The HARV-E will handle up to 250 pounds of paper mulch and up to 200 pounds of 100% virgin wood fiber mulch It will pump through 300′ or more of hose. It is capable of sell filling from a pond or a stream with the optional fill hose. Mixing is mechanical with an aggressive 16 paddle agitator. A major advantage of the unit is the poly tank. Poly tanks are totally rust resistant. One of the major problems with mechanical hydroseeding units or hydro mulching units is their susceptibility to rust. Even with a stainless steel tank rust is an issue and will start in the welds.
The HM-500-HARV-E 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 1700 pounds. the loaded weight is 5700 pounds. the physical dimensions are 58″W x 120″L x 55″H. The size of the skid frame on this unit is 45″W x 120″L.
The HM-500-HARV-E is ideal for a landscaper doing residential and commercial seeding, roadside work, erosion control work, and any hydroseeding job Full bales can be loaded into the units. Mixing time is 2 – 20 minutes. Discharge distance with the straight nozzle is approximately 70′. The spray distance with the optional platform gun is 100′.
