Finn HydroSeeder machines combine seed, fertilizer, soil amendments, mulch fiber, tackifier and other additives into a thick slurry and spray it onto the seedbed for superior lawn seeding. The product allows for quick establishment of vegetation for land reclamation, residential and commercial lawns, sports fields and athletic turf, and for erosion control. The process improves seed-to-soil contact and moisture retention and is especially well suited for hillsides or hard-to-reach areas and for less-than-ideal weather or soil conditions. The seeders feature hydraulically driven mechanical agitation systems with large steel paddles that operate in both forward and reverse directions at variable speeds for improved combination of slurry, better power and simplified maintenance.
