The T5000 spreader/sprayer high-capacity riding applicator from Turfco features a 60-gallon sprayer and 325-pound spreader capacity coupled with a powerful 22-hp engine delivering speeds up to 7 mph. The intuitive, steering wheel drive system provides outstanding stability on hills, eliminates turf-tearing, and reduces training time to save thousands of dollars per year. 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,” said George Kinkead, president, 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 industry-leading 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 downtime. 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 cleanup time and wasted fertilizer.
The drive system maximizes performance and boosts operator comfort with an easy-to-operate patented steering wheel, and the industry’s only hands-free speed control. The superior 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 fits through a 48-inch gate. The T5000 sprayer/spreader is available for factory-direct purchase from Turfco.
