CAPS EL Series

Durable, efficient, best-in-class hydroseeders


New Waste Concepts has been making or modifying equipment since the early 90’s. For over 20 years New Waste Concepts has been on the frontier of innovations. We sell most makes and models of Hydro-seeders to our customers. The CAPS (ConCover All Purpose Sprayer) EL Series is the culmination of over 20 years working and listening to our customers throughout the waste industry. As a result the EL Series Machines are specifically designed to tackle the most difficult of the problems at a waste facility working face or remediation clean up.

Similar to a Brabus edition of a car these features/modification/improvements can be done on other hydroseeders. We can take an “off the lot” hydroseeder and get it ready for the harsh and demanding environments found in the waste and environmental engineering industries.

Theses customer focused improvements whether its on our own CAPS EL Series machine or another brand of machine help make the application of NWC’s integrated product lines simple and cost effective.

So what makes an EL Series So special?

The CAPS EL Series reputation is the result of listening to our customers over the past 20 years. Unlike most companies our customers actively participate in the development/evolution of our machines. When our team of engineers create a piece of equipment/feature it goes through a process we refer to as evolutions. Each of these evolutions represents a series of tested upgrades from the original hydroseeder design to current production model. Each upgrade MUST either improve efficency or expand on the base functionality of the machine. This is the requirement for a design or new function being added.

CAPS EL Series Configurations

New Waste Concepts provides our customers with the ultimate flexibility in how to configure a machine for it’s primary use. Some Customers need to be able to move it from place to place, while others need a reinforced structure for rugid terrain. The configuration of the machine is critical in making sure the machine is capable of doing what you want it to do.

There are currently 4 main Configurations:


A trailer version that has brakes and lights for moving down the highway behind a vehicle

Landfill Carriage Unit (LCU):

A fixed hub and frame which has no brakes or lights and has a much higher ground clearance. This configuration is ideal for rough terrain or use in a landfill so it can be moved over the open working face and won’t get caught by debris.

Roll Off Box (custom):

A new configuration for 2008 that is gaining popularity. Configured to fit on a roll off box truck frame so you can remove the tank and machine, the custom roll off configurations allows ultimate flexibility and is often the preferred configuration for Railcar facilities.

One off/Unique(full custom):

Over the years we have made a variety of Custom Configurations to suit your needs. Fix mounted on a Vehicle frame or Truck mounted, New Waste Concepts can develop a configuration that works for you. Mount it on the machine of your choice

CAPS EL Series Options

One of the things that makes the CAPS EL Series unique are the available options. Some of these options are designed for specific environments while others are designed for increasing productivity. NWC has designed most of these options at the suggestion of our clients or for a specific application the machine was being used for.

Some of our more popular Options:

Crane Unit for loading

Crane Lifting Unit & Tote Lifting Bracket

was designed to allow lthe ifting pallets instead of individual chemical & mulch bags when creating a batch. We also created Bracket that works with our Chemical Totes. Totes are an easy way to lift and add the chemicals. The advantage is single bag loads for larger tank sizes.

Freeze Blankets

Freeze Protection Blankets

Often used in cold climates to prevent Freezing of water/product, freeze protection blankets are mounted on either side of the Mixing tank and a Power Center is mounted near the nose. The Machine is then plugged in overnight or when not in use and the blankets keep the contents of the tank from freezing.

Winterization tank

Winterization Tank

is used during the winter to keep the tanks from freezing. It allows propolyne Glycol to be run throughout the pipes at the end of the. Propolyne Glycol is the same thing they use to de-ice airplanes and can keep the liquids in the pipes from freezing even in temperatures significantly below zero.

Dust Spray Bar

Dust Spray Bar

Similar to what you see on water trucks at a landfill. The dust spray bar is atttached to the back of the machine and connected to the mixing tank. The machine is then pulled around the landfill applying the dust control product or water behind it. Consider expanding the capabilities of the CAP EL to include dust control.
