I have other Brinly-Hardy products is the reason I chose this roller. The quality for price is what I was looking for in my home use. It was easy to assemble and I have had no problems with it. The drain plug for mine has worked very smooth. Definitely recommend this roller.

The lawn roller was easy to assemble and hook up to the mower.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie Defective Product Run?
I ordered this Poly lawn roller and it arrived right away. It was easy to assemble and fill. Then, I went to screw the cap-plug in. It wouldn't fit. The threads simply wouldn't engage. It seemed as though the plastic on the plug was harder than the plastic of the receiving threads so they inevitably began to canter and strip inside the drum. Frustrated, I called Brinly Hardy (an American company) and began to explain the problem when they immediately offered to send a replacement drum and plug. I got the impression they had heard my story before. The second drum arrived, and you guessed it - the plug would not engage in the receiving threads. Exact same problem. I can manage to get the plug in at a wonky 15 degree angle, but removing it each year to drain the water will mean eventual devastation of those threads. My solution is to insert a pipe fitting reducer and a plug of a smaller size inside that so the plug will actually come out without a problem each year. It's just a pain having to make a product work - it should work already.
I would have given this product 1 star but I gave it a 2 because of the excellent customer service which offered a replacement (although still defective).

The Brinly 18" x 36" poly lawn roller was easy to assemble
and well designed. The only difficulty I had was threading
the plug into the water fill port. It was not clear if I had the
threads aligned properly, and took many attempts to make sure I didn't cross thread. One thing I would have
liked was bearings instead of plastic bushings on the axle.
Shipping to my house was fast and free, the best of both worlds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Caver69 Mostly good w some quality issues.
Unit arrived timely and as described. During assembly discovered the axle was noy centered on drum making it impossible to secure one of the retainer clips. Fortunately, there enough excess shoulder a little file work accommodated issue. Another 1/16 inch and it would have been back to the factory. Size is fine for a 21 hp mower pull behind on sloped yard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grassguy Effective roller
This unit works well and the variable water weighting is great. No lines/scuffing between passes thanks to the rounded corners. Tows easily behind lawn tractor (Sears). Backs up well.
Only problem was the plastic plug for the water fill/drain - very difficult to thread properly first time and had to use large agressive wrench action to screw in tight enough to be flush. Easier once that first use breaks in the thread match. This should have been done at the factory to prevent easy cross threading.

This work to some degree for my new lawn, but I don't think that there is anything on the market that works like a full size equipment. This roller worked as good as needed.

Arrived promptly and works great. Loses a star because plug goes in tough and is plastic so strips a little
