4Golfco International, Inc Golfco International, Inc. is the premier manufacturer of replacement rollers for reel-type mowersWe specialize in high-tech polyurethane and steel. We manufacture for most reel-type mowers including:Jacobsen - John Deere - ToroNational - Bunton - Lesco
8OUR HISTORYFor the past 18 years Golfco has been producing replacement rollers for the golf industry. Golfco pioneered the use of innovative technology in its competition rollers with advantages found nowhere else
9SUPER TOUGH SOLID “URETHANE” EXTERIOR BODY CAST OVER THICK -slick surface along with solid elastomeric precision cast body material helps eliminate buildup of debris-body has positive memory rebound - molecular action of urethane material tends to shake grass & dirt from surface-tough, abrasion resistant urethane body is superior to steel-entire mower is cushioned by shock absorbing body material
10HEAVY DUTY FOUNDATION RUNS FULL LENGTH OF ALL CAST ROLLERS -one piece thick gauge steel resists denting and bending-steel tubing is permanently bonded to urethane body-large diameter steel tubing maximizes stability-machined interior of tube holds bearings and seals securely

12BEARINGS ARE NONREGREASABLE SEALED BALL BEARINGS -no grease or oil maintenance - no grease fittings to maintain-double "high contact" sealed bearings-exterior sealing (v-ring and shoulder seals) keeps all debris out of housing-the same overhaul kit fits each and every competition roller-inexpensive and complete overhaul kits-all rollers are re-buildable (typically less than ten minutes
15OVERHAUL KIT INSTRUCTIONS (For Overhaul Kits # -2OH & 2OHSS)All Competition Rollers are assembled with the following components in each roller end (in order of assembly).PART NUMBER DESCRIPTIONA – 2BEARING/C Sealed ball bearingB – 2SR625 Heavy duty snap ringC – 2SEAL16 Collar seal with O-ringD – 2VR625 Nitrile rubber V-ring (black) sealsE – 2WASHER-90 Hardened steel washerF – 2RCLIP Exterior heavy duty lateral retaining clipREMOVAL OF OLD COMPONENTS:(On one end only - “END A”)Remove the outer lateral retaining clip.Remove the hardened steel washer (slides off end of shaft).Remove the black rubber V-ring seal (located against the collar seal).Remove the collar seal from inside the roller tube.Remove the snap ring which is next to the bearing inner race.
16REMOVAL OF OLD COMPONENTS: (On one end only - “END A”)Remove the outer lateral retaining clip.Remove the hardened steel washer (slides off end of shaft).Remove the black rubber V-ring seal (located against the collar seal).Remove the collar seal from inside the roller tube.Remove the snap ring which is next to the bearing inner race.Remove the shaft and all of the components of the second end (“END B”) at the same time by forcing the shaft into the roller tube at “END A” and out through “END B”. Take precautions to prevent the shaft from causing damage or injury as it projects out the end of the roller tube.Remove the bearing, seal and retainer components from “END B” of the shaft. Use the shaft to force the “END A” bearing out of the roller tube.
17REBUILDING ROLLER WITH NEW COMPONENTS: (Overhaul kit # -2OH / -2OHSS contains 2 each of the components listed above)Insert the shaft into the roller housing. Press new bearings onto the shaft ends and into bearing housing using Golfco assembly tools (97TOOL40A). The inner shoulder of the shaft will help to center the bearings and shaft in the roller tube.Install both snap rings to hold bearings in place. You may have to shift the shaft after installing the first retainer.Place a small amount of your favorite industrial (not erotic) grease in the housing next to the bearing.Install the collar seal into the housing with its counter-bore facing outward. The outer O-ring will center the collar as it seals.Push the black rubber V-ring seal onto the shaft end with the thin flexible lip section facing inward. With careful motion, push the V-ring down into the counter-bore of the collar seal. The lettering molded into the V-ring should be set flush with the outer face of the collar seal.Install the steel washer and the exterior lateral retaining clip.
19STEEL ROLLERS - THE BEST AVAILABLE -economical prices - nothing comes close to this utility and value-2" diameter rollers are one piece 1/4" thick drawn seamless tubing-smooth 11-gauge steel tubing on 2.5" and 3" diameter rollers with steelend hubs permanently fusion welded full circle-overhaul kit includes all bearings & seals (same kit as our cast rollers)
23OTHER OUTSTANDING FEATURES -solid cast grooved rollers without debris pickup-shafts are full length and retrofit to mower head-machining tolerances less than .0002" (2/10,000")-superior sealing design for bearings-all rollers are rebuildable - simple and quick
25"RADIUS" GROOVE DESIGN IS UNIQUE AND EFFECTIVE -continuous solid radius grooves have no opposing sides-solid debris will not lodge in the grooves-rounded corners on turf contact surfaceseliminates turf gouging and “mushrooming” at top of grooves-significantly easier to "steer" your mower
