I have had fewer issues with my B & S & Kohler engines than I have had with my Honda's & Kawi's. In fact, I just bought a new Intek for my tank sprayer. The Intek in my T3000 runs flawlessly. Starts on the first pull, uses no oil, and has great power.

What are the specs for this machine? How much water can it carry, how many pounds of fertilizer?

You can find all the specs at Turfco.com or call Turfco 800-679-8201 and have them send a catalog and video. It can carry 16 gallon in the saddle tanks (8 gallon each) the unit can also be rigged with another 16 gallon tank for a total of 32 with the fert hopper on. Take the fert spreader off and it can be set up with another 30 gallon tank for 46 gallon onboard. Spray output can be one quart to one gallon per K depending on the spray nozzle you use

The Fert spreader is a Spyker and will hold 120 lbs and the carrier tray will hold 3 bags of fert for a total of 270 lbs on board. Unless you use the carrier tray for the extra 16 gallon tank. Then your capacity for fert is just the spreader hopper.

I wrote them and got the information. I find it odd that the information is not readily available on the web site. Take a look for yourself. It is not there. Unless they added recently.

You are right. There is just the promo video. I guess they want a name and address before they give out the specs. Got questions call me. turfcobob 402-783-2028

I'm interested in a unit that carries a lot of water. Does anyone operate a t3000 with 32 or 46 gallons?

we do

Good question bud - We easily converted one of our T3000's this spring to accommodate 32 gallons. It's a sweet set-up, and the extra tank can be taken off in two minutes if need be.

This weekend, I'll re-plumb both out T's with "quick-disconnect fittings" to make it even faster to convert as well as faster fill time. (Working with TURFCO on that).

I cannot say enough about our T3000's cuz we run 'em everyday with no breakdowns. I figure we have had "2 days of total downtime" all year long. That ain't bad, and the T's make us huge profits.

I'll post pics soon once TURFCO sees them first and gives me the go ahead.

Both our T's have just under & just over 500 hours on 'em. But I know guys who have over 900 hours on 'em. Not bad for a product that has less than two years production.

The 2010 model will have modifications/improvements that will make most folks very happy for sure. Plus specific options that customers ask for.

Very proud A-Team member of TURFCO's T3000.

Spray Man The answer is yes. Some guys are putting down liquid fert at half gallon per 1000 sq ft. They got a 30 gallong tank kit from a company called Contree Mfg. in Wisc. It is a kit with all the hardware and plumbing to fit it to the T3000 and costs like $150.00 You have to take the fertilizer off and this takes about 15 minutes. 4 1/4 inch bolts, two pull pins and two cotter pins. Actually I put my Fert hopper back on friday when I took the Aux Tank off and it took me 15 minutes to put the Spyker hopper back on and operational. The pump produces 4.5 gallon per minute and hypro has 5 different nozzles available. Next Year we will also have a 12 boom available for different applications. The boom goes on and off in like one minute. Call if you have questions 402-783-2028

two minute pit stop

turfcobob was here this evening, and he showed us his T3000....SWEET!

Then I showed him our T's with quick-connect fill setup. It fills both saddle tanks in less than two minutes while we fill the hopper with dry fert. That's a two minute pit stop to fill an empty unit with everything.

Then he checked out our 16-gallon axillary tank that's plumbed into the saddle tanks. It can be removed in less than 30 seconds cuz it's mounted in the carrier tray.

Turfcobob's T had some 2010 model features that even ours did not have. More advances are also on the way for the 2010 unit. I should note that '08 & '09 models can easily be upgraded to the latest technology. Thanks TURFCO.
