BLAINE, Minn. – Turfco’s new T5000 Spreader/Sprayer high-capacity riding applicator can help landscape professionals scale up their productivity.
The T5000 is built for larger properties, with its 60-gallon sprayer and 325-pound spreader capacity coupled with a 22-hp engine delivering speeds up to 7 mph. The intuitive, steering wheel drive system provides stability on hills, eliminates turf-tearing, which is a problem with zero-turns and reduces training time. New operators can be trained and fully operational in less than a week.
“The T5000 builds on the heritage of the hardworking T3100, so that between the two machines, business owners can cover all their properties, large and small,” says George Kinkead, president of Turfco. “Now your operators can move from one machine to the next, reducing training time and helping businesses grow profitably, making their staff more productive.”
The T5000’s two-nozzle boomless spray system delivers an effective spray width of 10 feet, increasing productivity up to 29% percent over existing units. The boomless design eliminates some of the maneuverability challenges of spray booms by letting operators glide past obstacles such as signposts and fire hydrants without slowing down. And with optional 3-In-1 Tank, covers up to 300,000 sq. ft. per fill, so operators can make quick work of any property.
The hydraulically driven spreader provides infinite control up to 25 feet wide. Cables have been eliminated to streamline operation and ensure no down time. Turfco’s sprayer and spreader can do matching application widths for maximum one-pass productivity. Unique hard trim eliminates off-target prills to dramatically reduce clean-up time and wasted fertilizer.
The drive system maximizes performance and boosts operator comfort with a patented steering wheel, and hands-free speed control. The design with the pivoting front axle gives ultimate control in handling hills and uneven terrain minimizing operator fatigue and eliminating turf tearing. It also assists the operator in accurately matching up with the next application pass.
The T5000 is a scaled-up version of Turfco’s mid-sized riding applicator, the T3100 Sprayer/Spreader that has been a proven performer in the market since 2015. While developed to comfortably tackle larger properties, the T5000 still fits through a 48” gate. The T5000 and the T3100 share a similar operating system, so operators trained on the T3100 can get up to speed on the T5000 faster.
