Q. Can I purchase parts for my Landoll branded equipment direct from Landoll Corporation?
A. No, all repair parts should be purchased through your local Landoll dealer. If your dealer does not have the item you are looking for in their stock, the part can be ordered for you. All parts are shipped from the Parts Distribution Center located in Marysville, Kansas. The customer service representatives at the Parts Distribution Center (PDC) can assist you or your dealer with part number identification and current availability (phone: 800-423-4320).
Q. I purchased a used piece of Landoll equipment and do not have an Operator's Manual or Repair Parts Manual. Where can I find the manuals?
A. All manuals for Landoll products, both current and machines no longer manufactured, can be found online in the Operator's and Repair Parts Manual Search. The manuals can be downloaded and printed free of charge. If you need assistance locating the correct manuals for your machine, please contact a customer service representative at the Parts Distribution Center (PDC) by calling 800-423-4320.
Q. How has the acquisition of the Brillion Farm Equipment Division affected Landoll Corporation?
A. It has been a welcome addition for Landoll. The key product lines from Brillion: Seeders, Pulvi-Mulchers and Pulverizers have filled in the Landoll line very well. The additional production load of the Brillion machines keeps the state of the art facility running very efficiently and at or near capacity.
Q. Why does it sometimes take an extra day or two to receive my repair parts that are shipped direct from Landoll Corporation?
A. The total number of Landoll and Brillion repair parts that are shipped daily from the Parts Distribution Center (PDC) has grown tremendously. Trying to ship this higher volume of parts out of an already undersized facility has strained the entire parts system. However, a new state of the art Parts Distribution facility broke ground in the fall of 2013 in Marysville, Kansas. This new facility will afford improved parts order turn-a-round once it is up and running.
Q. What is the one feature/benefit of the 2000 Row Crop Cultivator that sets it apart from the competition?
A. It is all about balance. The close coupled hitch/toolbar keeps the entire machine close to the tractor to allow unequalled control and less horsepower required. It keeps the machine in balance with the tractor.
Q. Does the 2100 Series Coulter Chisel perform the same as any other disc chisel?
A. Basically, that is correct. However, the 2100 Series takes disc chiseling to the next level. The built in ability to handle high amounts of residue at efficient speeds of operation, set the 2100 ahead of its competition. A wide range of sizes from 7 to 25 shanks makes this series a perfect fit for a large group of producers of all sizes.
Q. Do I need to purchase a leveling device with my 2100 Series Coulter Chisel?
A. No. The decision to install a leveling device on your 2100 depends upon your expectation of what you want the finished field to look like. The 2100 can be equipped with a 16” diameter chopper reel to finish the blending process and smooth the ridge crowns. It can also be set up with an heavy-duty 3-bar coil tine harrow to help to fill in some of the valleys and better distribute the residue.
Q. Can I get hydraulic control for the chopper reel on my 2100 Coulter Chisel?
A. Yes. The hydraulic control can be ordered with the machine or it may be field installed on an existing unit. This option will give you fingertip control to regulate the position of the chopper reel.
Q. How much horsepower will the 2211 Series Ripoll require?
A. In most conditions, the 2211 will require 30-40 HP per shank. Local soil conditions can alter this average requirement.
Q. What shanks should I consider on the Ripoll?
A. The Ripoll can be equipped with 1.25” x 2.5” chisel style shanks that will accommodate a wide variety of chisel points. Set up in this mode, the 2211 has the potential to perform as one of the industry’s finest disc-chisel-disc machines. Set it up with the 1.25” x 3” ripper shanks and adjust it accordingly, and it has now been transformed into a compaction/residue management machine. With just some minor adjustments and shank change outs, the 2211 can do whatever you want it to do. The versatility is built in, not added on!
Q. What levelers are available for the 2211?
A. The chopper reel is the only leveler available for the 2211. Equip it with the hydraulic control option and the fine tuning opportunities of the 2211 can be enhanced even further.
Q. What is the concept of the 2410/2430 Weatherproofer (WP1)?
A. The WP1 is yet another player in the primary tillage line of tools available from Landoll. The WP1 incorporates the disc/disc/shank/leveler concept to provide excellent performance in heavy residue and hard soils. With its premier leveling characteristics, the WP1 has become a leader in laying the foundation for next season’s crops. Equally at home sizing and blending residue while addressing compaction, the WP1 is as efficient as can be. Designed in sizes from 6 to 13 shanks in both rigid and folding models, there is a WP1 for just about every operation.
Q. What is the transport width of the WP1?
A. Two of the most popular sizes, the 2410-7-24 and the 2410-9-24 have been specifically designed with a narrow transport width of 14’ 6”. Both of these machines fold narrow and mechanically lock into the working position.
Q. Are there levelers available for the WP1?
A. Yes. You have a choice of three leveling attachments for the WP1: a Combo Tine/Chopper Reel, a Heavy-Duty 3-Bar Coil Tine Harrow, or a 16” Chopper Reel. Once again, it is about expectations.
Q. What classification does the 2511 fit into?
A. The 2511 In-Row Ripper is a primary tillage tool. It is designed on an in-line (straight) toolbar with deep tillage shanks capable of managing compaction while leaving the soil surface virtually undisturbed. There are optional shank assemblies and optional points and wear strips to customize the performance to meet the needs of the customer.
Q. How much horsepower does the 2511 require?
A. Depending upon the depth of operation, soil density, soil moisture, etc., the 2511 can require up to 40 HP per shank.
Q. How do I determine how deep to run the 2511?
A. Normal depth of operation would be about 1 to 2 inches below the hardpan/compaction layer. That can be found with the use of a probe or by digging a root pit in the field to examine the profile of the soil.
Q. What sizes are the Landoll Grain Drills offered in?
A. The rigid models are 10, 12, 15 and 20 ft. The folding models are 30 and 40 ft. Both series are available with 7.5” or 10” opener spacings.
Q. Can I plant no-till with a Landoll Drill?
A. Yes. All models of the Landoll drill line-up are capable of planting conventional, min-till, and no-till. Landoll Drills all use a pneumatic down pressure system that allows the force on the openers to be adjusted from 120 psi to 400 psi.
Q. Can the Landoll Drill plant grasses and small legumes such as alfalfa and clover?
A. Yes. A small seeds attachment is available for all Landoll Drills. The seed meter for the small grass attachment is the same as on the Brillion Sure Stand Seeder.
Q. Is there a coulter cart available for the Landoll Drill?
A. Yes, the 10, 12 and 15 ft. rigid models can be equipped with a coulter cart.

Q. What is the difference between a Landoll VT and a Landoll Disc?
A. There a numerous differences. First off, the gang angle on the VT is 10 degrees front and rear. On the disc the gang angle is 20 degrees front and 18 degrees rear. Next, the concavity of the blades on the VT is a shallow 1.5”, while on the disc the concavity is a standard 3”. The blade spacing on the VT is 7” while on the disc it is 8 ¾”. The front gang spools are solid cast iron on the VT and fabricated steel on the disc. The depth of operation for the VT is normally less than 4”. The disc can operate as deep as 6”. The speed of operation for the VT is between 7 and 9 MPH. The disc runs best in the 6 to 7 MPH range. The conditioning reels are standard on the VT. They need to be purchased as an option on the disc.
Q. What is the horsepower requirement for the VT?
A. Under most conditions, it will take between 8 and 10 HP per foot to pull the VT.
Q. Does Landoll offer a hydraulic control for the reel on the VT?
A. Yes. The hydraulic control can be ordered from the factory or it can be field installed on current models.
Q. Why are the Finisholl and Tilloll painted yellow instead of blue?
A. The Finisholl and Tilloll are still painted the original Landoll yellow because they are the only machines that have stood the test of time without having a major redesign since they were introduced.
Q. What market do these two machines fit into?
A. Both of these machines fit into the classification of one pass seedbed preparation tools. As much as they are the same, they also have their differences. The Finisholl has a few more options to offer so the operator can fine tune its performance. The Tilloll has most of the options included and is able to be very versatile. Both fill niche markets. Both have years of experience to offer. Both are true Landoll.
Q. What sizes are these machines available in?
A. The Finisholl is available from 11’ 4” to 35’ 4”. The Tilloll is available from 10’ 6” to 40’.
Q. Is the 9600 Series Field Cultivator a new addition to the Landoll line of secondary tillage machines?
A. Yes. The 9600 Series was introduced late in the 2011 season and first shown publically at the 2012 National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky. The 9600 Series replaces the 9800 Series that had been in the line for many years.
Q. What sizes is the 9600 Series available in?
A. Working widths range from 20’ 6” to 34’ 6” in the three section models and from 38’ 6” to 50’ 6” in the five section units.
Q. What is the nominal shank spacing on the 9600 Series?
A. Shank spacing on the 9600 Series is 6” on all sizes. The shank layout utilizes a “split the middle” pattern for ultimate seed bed preparation. The deep 135” fore/aft frame allows for maximum residue flow in almost all conditions.
Q. What type of shanks are available on the 9600 Series?
