Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by YANKEE good if you modify--both ends of axle.
THE KEY AT THE END OF AXLE IS REALY WIMPY... I PUT THE ROLLER TOGETHER AND FILLED IT ABOUT HALF FULL. PULLED IT APPROX 100 FEET AND IT CAME APART,THE KEY HOLDING IT TOGETHER CAME OFF,IT WAS BENT SO KNOW IT WAS PUT ON CORRECTLY. I DRILLED A SMALL HOLE THRU THE AXLE PUT WASHER THEN COTTER KEY AND HAVE USED IT TWICE WITH NO PROBLEM.CAN'T BELIEVE IT WASN'T MADE THIS WAY AT THE FACTORY.

Complete and utter waste of money. DO NOT leave the sun, it warped. If you need the weight get one made of steel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Assembled easily and works great
The Box is aprox. 24 x 36 x38 for those wondering, like I was, if it would fit in the back of my car. The assembly was simple. Filled it with water and pulled it with my Troy Bronco (18 horse). It is heavy enough that does a good job. I have been getting rid of moles and this levels the ground and makes it easier to find their fresh runs, trap them and then level things out when the moles are disposed of.
The plastic roller has a couple of nicks from stones but it is still sound and holds water. When filled with water it takes some muscle to get it on my tractor hitch. I have had it about 8 weeks at this writng.
I am happy with the purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Retaining snaps, way too thin
When I assembled the unit and saw how thin the roller retainers were I was skeptical. I was right to be. It was a short time before they came off. I was towing the arms with the roller laying behind me. How Brinley thought a shifting with the terrain 690 lbs with wafer thin retainers is a clear poor choice
The shaft is long enough that I drilled it for spring pin retainers and now it stays on.

Easy online order and store pickup to avoid shipping charges. This roller is large so a pickup truck or big SUV would be great ( will not fit in your Prius!) Easy to assemble with a little thought and basic tools. The fill cap was a little tight to get in but just used a pipe wrench to wind in and works fine. The metal bracing and remaining hardware seems sturdy and not cheap.After filling rolled around my yard behind my Ariens tractor and had a great time smooshing all my mole humps and compressing a couple areas of new sand fill. Good product,good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RaceFanF1 Good except
No instructions in box but available online. Used the photos on the box to easily assemble it. However, the water fill plug would not start into the water fill hole. After 20 tries I got it to go 1/4 turn, being very careful not to cross thread it. Contacted Brinly-Hardy for a replacement plug and they told me this "crazy fit" was proper, to save the homeowner from ever needing a new plug. Eh? I'm an engineer and this is incorrect. I re-manufactured the plug with a thread re-chaser tool and now it's fine. Good roller. The instructions say "check the lawn tractor for proper application" My Lawn tractor instructions say "check the roller instructions" for proper application.

The roller is very well built and should last a long time. Home Depot was the only supplier that would let me order online and ship to their store for free.
