    I am looking at two used hydroseeding units. An EASY LAWN L65 and a TURF MAKER 425. I am new to hydroseeding and would like your opinions on which one to get. From what Ive seen most people say to go with a paddle agitation. There are still plenty of jet agitation machines out there and being sold (usually much cheaper), so is paddle agitation one of those options you regret not getting after you make a purchase? I realize some government/municipal projects will require a paddle agitation machine because of heavy slurries but im probably not going to be doing those soon. So which machine between THESE TWO would you pick?

    I would go with the TurfMaker 425. I had one and always had good results out of it. You have the paddle agitation and the lighter weight to go with it.

    What type of mulch did you use. Is it necessary to use a 100% wood mulch to achive quality results?

    I used a variety. Mostly 70/30 EnviroBlend.
