The most asked questions about the DANVILLE.


1. Will Roundup work in them?

Roundup works great in all of the models.  The zero drifting you get with DANVILLE will apply Roundup exactly where the roller has been – nowhere else.


2. How long will the roller last?

A college university reported well over 900 acres with a DEX 72 Model before a replacement roller was needed.


3. What happens if I roll over a dirt area with it?  Won’t the roller get covered with dirt?

The roller can be completely covered with dirt, and as soon as you get back on the grass, the water from the manifolds shooting onto the roller removes mud and debris from the roller very quickly so dirt is not a problem.


4. How many square feet will the DANVILLE cover before refilling?

All units apply one gallon of chemical to 1,000 sq. ft.  This is just at an average walking speed, which is 2.5 miles per hour.  If you travel 5 mph, just double the amount of chemical.  This gives you  place to start calibrating the amount of chemical that you need to use for your particular application.


5. Can I pull it behind my mower while mowing grass?

Yes, they work great for that!  That’s why we make so many different sizes.  We recommend that you buy a model with a roller about 4″ wider than your mower blade.  This gives you perfect coverage even in minor turns.  Plus you know exactly where you have been!


6. Can I take the roller off if I have a lot of debris to go over, such as tree wind breaks?

Yes, and you will still get an excellent application.  Try it!



Mix chemicals as if the DANVILLE was a sprayer.
