The C120 is one of our most versatile hydro-mulchers. It can be configured as a skid unit so that it can be mounted to whatever type of transfer vehicle you choose, or it can be configured as a straight pull trailer or a gooseneck trailer. The C120 straight pull trailer can be configured for front loading while standing on the tounge of the trailer, or for top loading with the optional full deck railing. The extra capacity of the C120 means you can cover up to 1350 square metres. The C120, along with the rest of our Contractor Series units, features a modular design so that you can build the machine for the way you intend to use it. With options such as steel or stainless steel tanks, integral flush tanks, hydraulic mulch grinders, electric or hydraulic hose reels, gas or diesel engines, skid or trailer mounting, and many more. How can you go wrong?
In addition to all of these choices, you can be confident in the fact that your machine has the most advanced hydraulic system on the market providing power to its functions. The C120 features the industries first load-sensing, pressure compensating hydraulic system. What exactly does that mean to you? it means that your machine has power when you need it and fuel efficiency when you don't.

SmartSense Hydraulic System
SmartSense Hydraulic System features a load sensing, pressure compensating hydraulic pump. It's the first hydraulic system of it's kind on a Hydromulcher. The pump senses demand from the machine's hydraulic circuits and adjusts itself automatically to meet demand. If the demand is reduced, the system readjusts to maintain maximum efficiency and improved fuel economy. The pump also makes sure hydraulic pressure is maintained, even under a load. This provides maximum torque at the times you need it most. All of this happens automatically, allowing you to focus on getting the job done.
Hydraulic Paddle Agitation
The Contractor Series Hydromulching Equipment features a hydraulically driven Paddle Agitation System. The paddles are variable speed and reversible and operate independent of engine RPM and spray pump functions. This ensures faster initial mixing and prevents over mixing while spraying. Belt driven agitation systems cannot operate in reverse to speed up initial mixing and cannot run independent of engine RPM. This means that when you are running the engine faster to achieve maximum spray performance, you are also running your paddles faster. This can create problems with air entrainment and pump cavitations. With Epic's hydraulically driven paddles, you can slow the paddles down to a crawl while still maintaining maximum spray performance.
Hydraulic Pump Controls
The spray pump on all hydromulching equipment features a hydraulic drive system. A highly efficient hydraulic motor is directly coupled to the spray pump, eliminating the need for troublesome clutches, belts, chains, and pulleys. These items add complexity and increased maintenance to the machine. Our system is very easy to use and requires no maintenance at all. The spray pump output is controlled with a Hydraulic Pump Speed Control (PSC) valve. There is no need to throttle the engine to change pump spray performance.
Balanced Trailer Design
Because all of the functions on the Contractor Series Hydromulching Equipment are hydraulically driven, we have more flexibility in how we lay out our equipment. On our trailer mounted machines, we put the engine up front for better balance when towing. Whether your tank is empty or full, our Hydromulchers tow better than any other machine on the market.
Dual Loading Hatches
All of our Contractor Series Machines features dual loading hatches to speed loading of materials into the tank. One hatch has a bag breaker for easy loading of seed, fertiliser, lime, and other additives. The second loading hatch is for mulch. Our standard mulch loading hatch is behind the engine cover on the front of the machine. You place your bale of mulch on the engine cover, cut off the plastic bag, and slide the bale of mulch into the tank.
One of the main design parameters on all Epic equipment is a focus on minimizing maintenance. We have an industry exclusive paddle shaft/bearing assembly design that eliminates shaft seals that are prone to leaking. The bearings are oversized and only require greasing every 250 hours or once a year. We know that your machine needs to be in the field working to make you money, not in the shop getting serviced.
The Contractor Series Hydromulching Equipment has three engine options available to satisfy your needs and budget. The standard engine is a 40 hp Kohler gasoline engine. It is easy and inexpensive to maintain and provides the same performance as the more expensive diesel engine options. If you must have a diesel engine, you can choose between a 44 hp Kubota diesel engine or a 49 hp John Deere diesel engine.
The C120 Contractor Series Hydromulching Equipment features two pump options. Our most popular option is the 4" x 2" Gear Pump. It is ideal for difficult to spray mulches and BFM's, hydrosprigging, and hose applications. We also offer a 4" x 2" Centrifugal Pump for applications requiring maximum turret spray distance.
The Contractor Series Hydromulching Equipment has two available spray options. We offer a turret gun for long distance spraying and fast empty times and your choice of and electric or hydraulic hose reel with 30 metres of 30mm hose. The hose reel is capable of holding up to 90 metres of hose and comes back with a discharge gun, 2 fan nozzles, and 1 straight nozzle.
Stainless Steel Tank
One of our most popular options is the Stainless Steel Tank. As you know, the contents of your slurry can be very corrosive. Steel tanks usually have a coating that can wear off. If this coating isn't maintained, steel tanks will rust. Frequently, contractors need to send their employees into the tank to reapply this coating. Our Stainless Steel Tanks eliminate this issue altogether. You will no longer have to worry about tank corrosion and the added maintenance costs associated with steel tanks.
Integrated Flush Tank
If you get the Stainless Steel Tank Option, then you can also get the optional Integrated Flush Tank. It gives you 225 litres of fresh water for flushing the pump and hoses between tank loads and at the end of the day. This makes it much easier to clean up your machine and the mess can be sprayed out on site. Flushing the pump and hoses also minimizes the potential for clogging when you are spraying extra thick slurries or wood fibre mulches and bonded fibre matrixes. The flush tank automatically fills when you fill the main tank, then all you do is open a ball valve to flush the system with clean water.
Hydraulic Mulch Grinder
Today's hydraulic seeding mulches and BFM's aren't made like they used to be. Mulch bales used to be made in such a way that they came apart in flakes. This made it very easy for the paddles in a Hydroseeding or Hydromulching machine to break up the mulch. These days, mulch is made in one single brick. Epic Manufacturing offers an optional Stainless Steel Hydraulic Mulch Grinder to speed loading and to minimise the work that the paddles must do to get the slurry mixed. The grinder is especially effective at mixing BFM's and mulches tackifier mixed in.
