    Does anyone know what the easiest hydro-seeder would be for a 1 man operations, I have never run one but have been told, it almost takes two men one spraying and the other handling the hose,from what I have read I am thinking about going with the Turfmaker 425, I just found this web site and have not been able to stay off it. I really thank all of you for your great advice. Thanks , Sloan

    For a 1-man operation you can run many of the hydroseeders. Ours is a 600 gallon unit, and we sometimes have 1 man running it. Sure, it goes a little slower when you don't have someone to help move the truck/unit, and tug the hose out of your way, but it can all be done pretty easily.

    We are currently looking at another hydroseeder and are leaning toward the easy lawn. best deal so far and minimal maintenance.

    I have a TurfMaker425 and run it alone alot of the time. It is definatly easier with 2 people, but after using it awhile you will learn how to use it alone. I would think all brands would be this way.
