Check all sprockets and verify that teeth are pointed, not rounded. If rounded, replace sprockets. If sprockets are fine, loosen setscrews on drive sprocket located on the transmission shaft. Push sprocket toward transmission causing the chain to be in an angled position. Put transmission shifter in neutral and push machine forward and backward. The drive sprocket will self-align. Lock in setscrews and chain should be in alignment with all sprockets. If it is still falling off, replace chain as it is probably elongated. The problem should be solved.

Gary D. - Shelly's Landscape Contractor's told us:
Dear Cary, I just wanted to take a few minutes and let you know how happy I am with the Brutus Roller! After using the Brutus for almost 40 years in the landscape industry, aside from regular maintenance of equipment we at Shelly's Landscape Contractor's in Northbrook, Illinois have found it to be a very reliable piece of equipment. I believe that we were one of the first companies to purchase a roller of this size and durability and couldn't be more pleased with it! Thanks again, Shelly
