All units 100% mechanical agitation
mechanical or hydraulic drive systems
(hydraulic the auger and pump go forward and reverse)
gear pump on 325 to1750 gallons (thicker mulch)
centrifugal pump optional with higher horsepower engines
(mostly 1200 to 3500 Gal.units for long distance gun work)
The base TurfMaker® 325 will mix and pump any mulch product (including Flexterra®) up to 100 pounds per tank load and pump that slurry through at least 300 feet of hose normal mulch 400 feet of hose with a 10 HP engine most hydromulchers sell with a 14-51 HP engine.

Know the differences in hydroseeder and hydromulcher equipment before spending thousands of dollars.
A good hydroseeder can quickly mix and apply any kind of mulch mixture, thick or thin. A very thick mulch mixture is frequently needed for serious erosion control applications. Sometimes, a highway right-of-way can be adequately covered with a soupy mixture. For landscaping and sod quality results hydromulching, premium mulch products are most appropriate.
Don’t be misled that a larger tank and engine is the answer. A re-circulation or ‘jet agitation’ machine will not mix even moderately thick slurries limiting mulch applications to low budget projects. There is no substitute for a machine designed to efficiently mix and pump good mulch materials at appropriate rates. The purchase of a cheap hydroseeder machine can be a disaster for a new contractor intending to enter the business of planting quality grass on new lawns and fine landscapes or serious erosion control.

TurfMaker Features & Design Differences Improve Productivity
» CALL FOR A TURFMAKER DEMONSTRATION - Compare to any competitor. You WILL be impressed with the simple design, the user friendliness, and the higher productivity.
» POWERFUL DIRECT DRIVE MECHANICAL AGITATION - Load and mix the thickest wood mulch slurries almost instantly. No wasted time reversing the agitator for total mixing.
» PROPRIETARY ROTARY GEAR PUMP is capable of pumping very thick slurries through long hoses without loss of pressure at the end of the hose. A TurfMaker® is THE MACHINE to use when pumping with 500 feet of hose up the side of a mountain.
» USER FRIENDLY LOW-PROFILE LOADING PLATFORMS - This design feature minimizes user fatigue caused by lifting heavy bags of mulch onto high loading platforms.
» CLEAR WATER HOSE FLUSH SYSTEM - This system pumps clear water through the hose pushing the heavy mulch out of the end of the hose. The hose drains completely resulting in the hose becoming very light weight, making it easy to handle and store.
» DOUBLE THE MACHINE CAPACITY - A TurfMaker® can fill itself from an auxiliary water tank, effectively doubling or even tripling capacity by avoiding extra trips to the water source. This is particularly important when a high volume water source is not close by. If garden hoses are the only close water supply, an auxiliary water tank can be filling during spraying operations.
» CONTROL HOSE PRESSURE - The pumping pressure control is independent of the engine speed and agitator mixing speed. This allows the user at the end of a 300’ hose to precisely spray around flowerbeds with low-pressure or spray the mulch slurry as far as 100’ from the end of the hose with high pressure.
» SIMPLICITY OF DESIGN - There are no clutches or hydraulic systems to fail, just tensioned V-belts that operate like most riding lawnmowers. Yet, the pump, the pump pressure, and the agitator are all controlled independent of each other.
TRY IT - YOU WILL BE IMPRESSED - In almost all cases, when an experienced or new person uses a TurfMaker®, they are impressed and sometimes amazed at how such a simple machine can perform at such a high level. AND yet costs no more, and in some cases costs considerably less than other similar machines

This Straw Blower is the leading compact straw blower in the landscape industry and the most widely used for industrial rentals. For the contractor, materials costs will be reduced by up to 20% over hand shaking straw. Also, labor costs will be significantly reduced because an average of 120 bales per hour can be applied with two people. The costs of the machine will be recovered quickly with labor savings and reduced jobsite time.
Job Quality is Better with Even Applications of Materials, even with wet straw or heavy hay. Because beater flail chains are used instead of cutting knives, longer pieces of material are applied onto the ground improving job quality. Also with this design, clogging almost never occurs.
The Fully Rotational Metal Cannon (360-Degree) eliminates wear and tear associated with hose. But, if a hose is needed to reach hard to get to areas, the user can still attach up to 100’ of 6” hose with the optional hose coupling attachment.
A Skid Mounted TurfMaker® Straw Blower is ideal to use on the tail gate of a pickup. The unit has fork pockets for easy handling.
Trailer Mounted,the unit can be towed with a pickup, leaving more room in the bed of the truck for materials.
