Finn invented and trademarked the first Hydroseeder® in 1953. Designed to mix and spray a slurry of seed and fertilizer over broad areas, this was more than a product innovation -- it was the seed that spawned a new industry of turf and erosion control contractors.

Hydroseeding is more efficient than sodding, broadcast seeding, or any other method of establishing turf. Finn hydroseeders use hydraulically driven, mechanical paddle agitation and liquid recirculation to enhance the loading, mixing, and discharge operation.

Finn's exclusive pump design, variety of models, and numerous options provide a robust and operator-friendly hydroseeder while keeping maintenance costs low. No other manufacturer can come close to Finn's offerings for variety, innovation, and dependability.
