TurfEx has introduced the TT5000 Spread-N-Spray, with advanced features to increase the efficiency, productivity and profitability of lawn care professionals. The new unit boasts a new standard height-adjustable boom kit that maximizes spray width while minimizing waste.
The TT5000 is driven by a seven-horsepower Subaru EX210 engine with electric start and a 0.95-gallon fuel tank. Its heavy-duty Peerless transmission has two forward gears, neutral and reverse, with a top operating speed of five miles per hour. A hand-operated transmission disc brake and foot-controlled sulky band brake allow smooth, confident operation of the unit, and the machine’s low center of gravity further increases its safety.
An integrated 17-gallon tank system has a single rapid-fill port for easy filling, and a balanced design for enhanced stability. To apply the liquid, the TT5000 includes a front-mounted 84-inch stainless steel boom, which can spray between six and 12 feet wide for general spraying, or three feet wide for trim. The boom wings can be folded for travelling through fence gates and other confined areas, and they include spring-activated tripping mechanisms to help prevent damage if the boom strikes an obstacle. A professional-duty spray wand with a 10-foot hose also comes standard. The unit’s electric pump can be turned on while the engine isn’t running, allowing the operator to spot spray using only battery power.
The hopper of the TT5000 holds up to 150 pounds, or three cubic feet, of material. A 12-inch polyethylene spinner throws a spread pattern up to 14 feet wide, while the stainless steel flow gate with adjustable precision-agitation distribution promotes the consistent and accurate application of granular material.
Ergonomic fingertip controls allow the operator to easily manage the functions of the TT5000. A pressure gauge, liquid level gauge, digital tachometer and lubrication indicator come standard to verify the status of the machine. A push-button kill switch provides emergency stopping.
Designed for minimum maintenance, the TT5000 is constructed from corrosion-resistant materials and contains unique protective shrouding to prevent material buildup and rust. There are few moving parts and cables to service, and the engine is easily accessible.
Other standard features include knobby-tread front tires, rear turf tires, a double-bearing sulky pivot, side deflector, hopper cover, top screen and bumper update kit. The TT5000 is backed by a two-year warranty on parts and labor.
