Hello all, I have done a search on hydroseeders and have found some great information on them, thank you to all that have posted with your knowledge on this subject! I realize that the Finn,Turfmaker, and a few others are the popular choice, and that you get what you pay for, but i still have some questons. Would it be silly to buy a cheaper machine first (i'm looking at a turbo turf HS 300 E $3995) since i won't be doing huge areas, and then if all goes well in a year or two buy a bigger, better machine? I have a few builders who are interested in the service. They, combined will build about 20-30 houses a year, and also some other landscapers that i have talked to have said they would be interested also. Most lawns to be seeded would be in the 5,000-10,000 sq. ft. range. I would not be relying on this service to be a sole income, just looking to diversify. I checked the HTPA site, and from what i gather you have to be a member to get any info. . I don't want to join if i'm not sure that i will be buying one yet. Thanks again for any ideas or suggestions!!
