Lawn Rollers

  • What types of jobs is the lawn roller good for other than rolling lawns?

    The Lawn roller may be useful in other areas than just lawns. The lawn roller can be helpful with sod as well as some soft surface application. The lawn roller should not be used on gravel lest the rocks puncture the polycarbonate shell.

    Check out the FAQ video for Spyker Lawn Rollers here.

  • My roller has a dent/ is warped. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

    Yes! The roller drum if formed with a “memory” to hold its shape. Simply remove the plug, empty the roller drum and set it in direct sunlight, with the flat spot up. The heat from the sun will expand the roller drum and it will go back round.

    Note: If the unit does not reform immediately, be patient. Slowly rotate the unit over the course of a day or two to remove the flat spot.

  • Do you offer different types of plugs?

    Yes, over the years Brinly Hardy has used 3 different types of roller plugs. Our current iteration of plugs comes with a tether/chain so that you never have to worry about losing your plug again. To purchase this plug, head on over to the parts store to pick up a #1019524.

  • Do I need to drain my roller before storing?

    Yes, you will need to drain the roller completely and store it without the plug-in place. Changes in atmospheric pressure will cause the unit to warp if the plug is left in for storage.

  • Can I fill this product up with things other than sand?

    You can fill the roller with sand, small gravel, or event cement. Please note that doing so voids the warranty and Brinly will not cover damages to units that were used with materials other than water.

  • Can I back up this unit?

    There are a few steps that can be taken to test your pump/motor. To test that your pump/motor is not the issue you may jump the harness. When doing so, you may check to see if it has suction. Do not leave anything on the suction end of the pump as this can cause the pump to burn out. Additionally, check the strainer for blockage.
