should I upgrade my turfmaker?
« on: Fri January 07, 2022, 11:55:01 AM »
Hey guys!

2021 was my first year hydroseeding and ive been learning all I can.  I own an insurance agency full time but do this on the side as I dont enjoy being stuck at a desk all the time. 

I bought an OLD turfmaker 700.  The engine was replaced 3 years ago.  not much rust at all.  I have about 6500 in it.  Im not a fan at all of the door where you add the mulch, as it slides all the way out the back and slings mulch everywhere, and everything on it just seems difficult (those pipe fittings are hell to break loose if needed after 18 years or so of use)The pump is a little weak.  Im torn on just buying a new pump (around $2200) and making it work, or buying a newer used 800 or a brand new 800.

I really enjoy this and have been making some decent side money.

I found a used 800 in pretty good shape with trailer for $30,000.  decked out like id like,

or should i pay a little more and just go new for around 36000.

Thanks in advance for the advice?

For $ 6,000.00 difference I think I would be tempted to go for a new unit.  I might offer the guy with the used unit $ 28,000 or less and if he would take that then I might go for the used unit.  It just doesn't seem like enough difference between the price of new and used.  Of course it is your money so ...........  Good luck.  You probably won't go wrong whichever way you go.
