The HS-50, is a 50 Gallon, skid type hydroseeder. It will seed 650 square feet per load. It is equipped with an 6.5 H. P. Briggs Vanguard engine that is directly coupled to a 2″ X 2″ high volume centrifugal pump. The unit comes with 50′ of 1 1/4″ discharge hose, a gun and three nozzles ( 1 wide hydroseeding nozzle, 1 straight distance nozzle, and 1 trim nozzle). The empty weight of the HS-50 hydroseeder is 195 pounds. the loaded weight is 595 pounds. the physical dimensions are 24″W x 52″L x 29″H. The size of the skid frame on this unit is 20″W x 52″L. This unit will fit in the back of a compact pickup, or a utility vehicle such as the John Deere Gator. It can also be easily operated from a trailer.
The HS-50 is ideal for a golf course for repairing wear along cart paths, and for general repairs, for a cemetery, for construction repairs such as someone installing irrigation systems or water lines, and for lawn repair and renovation. It is capable of handling much larger jobs, but if the average job is larger, a bigger machine should be considered. Material is applied at approximately 30 G.P.M. Time to spray a complete tank is about 2 minutes. Mixing time is 2-5 minutes depending on material. This unit comes with 50′ of discharge hose. It will easily handle an extra 50′ of hose. The spray distance with the straight nozzle is approximately 40′.
Typical materials used in one load would be 20 pounds of a pourable hydroseeding mulch such as Cover Grow or EZ Mulch AF or 15 pounds of paper hydro seeding mulch, the appropriate amounts of seed for 650 square feet (any seed will work in hydroseeding), and the appropriate fertilizer for 650 square feet (liquid, water soluble, or granular).
Like all TURBO TURF systems, the HS-50 comes equipped with a long life poly tank that can never rust, the ability to mix partial loads, a simple but powerful design with few moving parts, continuous agitation, and the ability to control the flow at the gun without making adjustments at the unit. Prices quoted are a complete machine ready to operate.
This unit used a 2″ x 2″ centrifugal pump with an output of –160 gallons a minute of flow and 37 P.S.I. of pressure. This pump has provided excellent performance and durability. The pump is easy to service and maintain. There are no grease fittings and the only maintenance required is to winterize if at the end of the season if it is stored where temperatures go below freezing. The pump impeller mounds on the end of the engine shaft so there is no power loss. Typically it can operate for 5 to 10 years with no maintenance. The only thing to be careful of is to not run it dry.
This unit comes with a 6.5 H.P. Briggs & Stratton recoil start engine. This has proved to be a very reliable engine with a long life. The engine has a two year warranty and service for the engine is available at any authorized Briggs & Stratton engine dealer.
This unit comes standard with 50 ft of 1 1/4″ I. D. hose. The hose we use is both strong and light weight. It is made from a poly material with a spiral reinforcement. Additional hose is available in 50 foot sections. The unit will handle up to 150 feet of hose.
This unit is easy to run. There are only two valves on the unit. The main mixing valve is opened fully when mixing and closed to a 45 degree angle in which case it is half open and half closed. This provides some mixing action but gives added spray power. There is also a valve going to the discharge hose. This is always fully open when spraying but can be closed to disconnect the discharge hose. The discharge hose is connected with a quick coupler. Should you need to go someplace to get water the hose can quickly be disconnected so when you have a new load mixed up you can connect the hose and start spraying right where you left off. It eliminates the need to wrap up the hose before you are finished.
The HS-50 is a skid type unit that can be operated from a small trailer, from the back of a pickup truck from the back of a utility vehicle and any other means of transporting the unit. It is available as a pull type unit which is designed for off road use and is not highway legal. For more information on the pull type unit look at our model number HS-50-P.
