Around here the costs run under 2 cents per foot for material. In place rates run around 5 cents. I just did 15,000 ft in 3 1/2 hrs last week. My seeder is only 200 gallon but I carry a 1,000 gal nurse tank in the dump truck so I can cover about 11,000 on one fillup. Mulch quality greatly affects mixing times, may not be so much of a factor on a mechanically agitated unit but is something to consider if you have a jet agitator. On that big an area I'd be inclined to lay fertilizer first with a broadcast spreader. It's easy to lay down too much material, have you ever hydroseeded before?
