Hey Guys,

How much is this worth?
A 1988 Bowie Hydro mulcher that is in excellent condition with a brand new paint job. It is a 800 gallon machine w/a 100 gallon flush system,rebuilt pump, gear pump, electric hose wind up, top cannon, and powered by a 4cyl winsconsin engine. It only has two thousand hours. Thanks for your input.

It is work probobly 2,000-5,000

I would pay 2,000 for it aroun January 2004.

Otherwise I will be buying a Turbo Turf Hydroseeder.
100 gal $2,000 1,300 sq. ft coverage.

Will have to refill 3+ times each job
but will do

Hopefully will pay for the unit the first yr.

we have this machine, older 1976 model. I paid $1000 for mine and paid another 1500 or so to rebuild the engine, carburator, pump, replace the top and chains. it gets a rhino liner next job, hose reel and clean out tank job after that. mine has no turret, I'd say yours is worth 3-8000, depending on rust, tires, inside of tank, etc. I have seen several in the equipment trailer, a magazine with photo ads sometimes sold near the truck trader or auto trader magazines. they average 4-8000. good luck.

you should also know that the Victor 800 actually has a capacity of 950 gallons.

I agree with David. Depending on the rust and if it was sandblasted before the painting I would guess around here you would get about $7K-$9K .

thanks guys for your input

It has no rust on the outside, but there is a little spot 1" that need to be looked at. It still has the factory coating inside.

Hey Dave what's a turret

Thanks again

Are you trying to sale this machine or buy?

Also, a turret is the gun on the top that allows you to spray standing on the machine.

Hey Sean

It does have a turret gun on the deck. I am pondering selling the machine. I was thinking on purchasing a turbo jet machine. Alot less maintance.


What do you think Guys
It takes quite abit of square feet to fire up my machine

Thanks again
