Turfco introduced the next generation T3000 spreader sprayer, the T3000i series, featuring intuitive upgrades for increased productivity and durability. The versatile new machine is still small enough to fit through a 36-inch gate, yet productive enough for large commercial properties, resulting in easier route management and increased efficiency.
New features for the T3000i transform the entire operating experience of the spreader sprayer. Features include an innovative hands-free speed control system, trim-speed lock and Santoprene® pump.
“The T3000i is designed to handle the widest range of properties from residential to commercial, and is the perfect choice whether running one or a fleet of ride-on applicators,” said Scott Kinkead, Turfco’s vice president. “The i-series spreader sprayer is a result of customer input over the past four years. It’s now more versatile, easier to use and more durable.”
The patent-pending hands-free speed control system gives the operator unprecedented command. A speed-control pedal allows the operator to keep one hand free at all times to run the sprayer spreader. Combined with the steering wheel, pivoting front axle and floating ride-on platform, the new feature enhances operator control and overall ease-of-use. Training time is also decreased, because the hands-free speed system is intuitive and easy to understand. Additionally, the positioning of saddle tanks, the low center of gravity and hydrostatic transaxle braking system deliver dynamic braking and easy control and stability on uneven ground and hills.
A trim-speed lock speed feature is also new. It allows operators to efficiently trim the property at a consistent speed, whether using the four-foot trim spray or 15-food wand, and quickly switch back to a wider application to cover the larger areas. This translates into more efficiency, precision and profit.
The T3000i also includes a new variable speed diaphragm pump. It features Santoprene® valves for extended life, minimized maintenance and easier serviceability. The adjustable, high-pressure, high-velocity system creates larger droplets for the best spray with less drift and fewer callbacks.
Additional upgrades and benefits to the T3000i include:
Optional electric start
16-amp charging system to provide professionals greater versatility in accessories
Improved two-speed spinner design for durability and ease of maintenance
Compact design to fit through a 36-inch gate
12- to 18-foot spreading widths
Six- and nine-foot spraying widths
64,000 square feet per fill
Separate spray/spread systems
Four-foot trim spray and 15-foot wand for simple trimming and spot treating
Wrap-around deflector to eliminate prills and minimize clean-up
Greater control on hills relieves operator strain and improve safety
Durable, long-lasting and serviceable
Because the T3000i has the ability to cover 64,000 square-feet per fill and fit through a 36-inch gate, it’s versatile enough for properties of any-size, whether commercial or residential. And, it eliminates the need for landscape contractors to own multiple spreader sprayers.
The new T3000i reflects Turfco’s mission of listening to the customer and delivering improved features and results year-after-year.
