Bought the 3 section 51 ft version in the spring of 2021, So far so good, it has the hyd floating hitch. Pulls good but we pull ours with a JD 9510rt. It does a good job. Its nice and heavy.

I looked at them last year, they looked okay, but I ended up purchasing a Mandako because it weighed more.
Brandt landrollers could be ordered with either 36 or 42 inch rollers when I was looking at them last year.

How can anybody screw up making a land roller? Cheaper the better

How about roller stubshafts not straight, pins in pivots undersized, hydraulic hose crimps poorly done. This one is a Chinese import brought in by a West Australian manufacturer.

Degelman is tried and true. Brandt quality in general has become sub par.
Degelman is a good simple machine and the newest models are built way better then the earlier models.
Degelman has made a lot of changes to their landrollers over the years, most of which you will not notice unless you know where to look.
The first roller on the farm was a 1996 Degelman 40 ft and when it left here in about 2015 there was wear everywhere there could be wear.
My 2021 51 ft Degelman roller has addressed a lot of those issues.
I will add that I rent my rollers out so they see thousands of acres each year and are probably used pretty hard by some people.

Mandako is awesome, we’ve ran ours for about 15 years. I’ve replaced one tire. It gets greased once a year. They may be stupidly expensive now because they come from south of the border.

What’s the issue with Riteway? I can’t find anything to complain about with my 3 section 52’ Riteway. Almost zero maintenance.

Yup makes two of us. We rent ours out. Only had it 3 years and no issues. Plus ours was an old flamans rental unit

Our Riteway roller is awesome. Changed one bearing in 12 years, otherwise it’s grease and used it. Been one of our best pieces of equipment.
