    Can't help you out there, don't have any experience with those machines.

    We are running a Kincaid machine, its worked out well for us so far, We will eventually upgrade to a bigger unit. I would go with something that is mechanical agitation and probably something that has a tower gun and a pull behind unit. There was a unit for sale on here within the past week that would make a good starting machine, it was a good deal too.

    Hi BobcatBoy06,I have only seen the Finn and Easylawn rigs.How many gallons does your rig hold? have you got a model number for it?

    Have you found that jet agitation doesn't mix very well? can your rig take wood mulch?

    I was only looking at a starter type rig,but i'm thinking I might go one step further,that is if my budget will cover it.:)

    All the best thanks

    I own a turfmaker 500 gal. with a 500 gal. aux. tank i have on a 16' trailer. it works very well and you are able to pump the water out of the nurse tank with the main pump on the seeder. They are great people to deal with www.turfmaker.com ask for Ruthie if you would phone. please mention Mike from Bobcat service in Maeyland told you. they are a mechanical machine and you can visit my web site and see it working. www.bobcatservice33.com

    Hi,

    YOu may want to check out some of the hydroseeding forums....I think turboturf does have a good site but of course they will pitch their product there too....I have a Easy Lawn 600 gallon model....works great....As far as Kincaid brand I have heard alot of negatives about it in one or two of the forums....
    Hope this helps.
