#180 Rollermill


Buhler Farm King Rollermills are built to last using durable, heavy gauge materials.

They deliver top-quality rolled grains, year after year, with minimum maintenance and low daily operating costs. The Y180 handles 200-300 bushels/hour and uses

40-60 PTO. A power magnet trap keeps nails and other metal objects from entering rollers. Model 180 features an optional 12’ hydraulic auger system, which swivels a full 180 degrees. Adjustable roll scrapers, to keep rollers clean, are standard on

Model 180. Chrome plated rollers for longer life. Stationary stand for easy setup.

Transport with 15” wheels available. (Requires stand) PTO driven standard for

Model 180.

Keep this manual handy for frequent reference. All new operators or owners must review the manual before using the equipment and at least annually thereafter.

#180 Rollermill


1. The basic Rollermill is completely assembled except for the hopper (#63). Mount the hopper on the top of the rollermill with the chain brackets to the rear of the mill as shown in drawing. Use the bolts supplied with the hopper.

2. PTO drive is standard on the #180 rollermill. With the engine on the tractor shut off, attach the PTO shaft. The tractor end has a standard 6-spline end with a spring loaded locking pin. The Rollermill end has a clamp-style yoke with a 3/8" keyway.

Slide the yoke onto the roller shaft with the 3/8" key supplied, lock the yoke in place with the ½” x 3” bolt and lock nut fitted through the groove in the roller shaft. After tightening the bolt, insert and tighten the 3/8" socket set screw supplied.

CAUTION: Always check to see that both ends of the PTO shaft are securely attached every time the rollermill is used. This should always be done with the tractor engine off.

3. An optional stand (#71) is available for the #180 rollermill. The stand consists of two pieces which bolt underneath the rollermill using ½” x 1 ¼” hex bolts, lock washers and hex nuts.

4. A magnet for the intake hopper is available as an option for all rollermills. This will keep small metal objects out of the rolled feed and also prevent damage to the roller grooves.

5. If you intend to mount the rollermill on a transport, the stands described in step number three must also be purchased. First mount wheels and tires on the transport hubs. The bottom edge of the stand bolts to the top of the transport using

½” x 1 ¼” hex bolts, lock washers and hex nuts. Bolt the PTO holder (#77) to the front of the transport and the unloading auger support bracket (#78) at the rear of the transport. This bracket is required only if the optional 7" unloading auger is also used.

6. The optional unloading auger includes a discharge hopper (#83) and a cross auger

(#102). The discharge hopper fits between the top edge of the stands and the bottom of the rollermill and fastens with the same bolts as the stands. Use 3/8" x 1

¼” hex bolts, lock washers and hex nuts where the hopper bolts to the rollermill at the back edge.


#180 Rollermill


7. Slide the hydraulic unloading auger (#103) onto the sleeve extending from the discharge hopper. The unloading auger is held in place by running the chain provided (#84) through the welded bracket on the auger and hooking the ends of the chain to the chain brackets on the hopper. Two hooks (#107) hold on the discharge auger by hooking onto a welded ring on the hopper sleeve. Bolt on using

5/16” x 1” hex bolts, lock washers and hex nuts. Bolt the spout (#105) to the top end of the unloading auger using 5/16” hex nuts.

8. Mount a 4 ½” pulley (#66) with the 1” bore on the cross auger stub shaft at the front of the rollermill using a ¼” x 1 ¾” key. The 6” pulley with the 1 ½” bore (#16) is mounted on the same roller shaft end as the PTO shaft. There is both a ¼” and a

3/8” keyway at the end of the shaft. The ¼” is for the 6” pulley and the 3/8” is for the PTO shaft. The 3/8” key for the PTO shaft is packed in the plastic bag with the manual. Mount a 5L-400 V-belt (#70) and tighten using the idler pulley (#28) provided. The idler pulley bolts to the welded bracket on the front rollermill side.

Bolt the guard (#101) across the pulley assembly using 7/16” x 1 ¼” bolt on the welded bracket on the side and one of the roller bearing bolts. Connect the PTO shaft after the guard is bolted on. The PTO shaft sits in the cradle bolted to the transport when the Rollermill is being moved.

9. Mount the two 90

° street elbows (#112) in the hydraulic motor. The hydraulic hoses

(#111) run under the hopper to the front of the transport. Make sure the unloading auger is running before you start the rollermill to prevent plugging. The unloading auger has a clean-out lid (#106) near the bottom should the corner ever become plugged.


#180 Rollermill


- Turn rollermill upside down as shown.

- Four ¼” x 1 ¼” x 2" flat iron brackets with slotted holes are positioned as shown in drawing and welded to the sides. Measure 10 ½” from the end of the rollermill to the inside of the first bracket and space 1 ¾” apart. The brackets are flush with the bottom of the roller mill. NOTE: Weld on the inside edge only.

- Bolt the 18 ½” long scrapers to the outside of the welded brackets using 5/16" x 1" cap screws, flat washers, lock washers and hex nuts. The bottom lip on the scraper is turned to the center of the rollermill.

- Adjust the scraper height so the scrapers are just short of touching the rolls.


#180 Rollermill


Belt Drive Guard:

- used on all Rollermills

PTO Drive Guard:

- used on Rollermills with

discharged hopper

PTO Drive Guard:

- used on Rollermills without

discharge hopper


#180 Rollermill



All rollermills are supplied with a drive pulley guard (#72). One end of the guard is bolted to the two holes punched in the spring holder using ¼” x 1 3/4” hex bolts, lock washers and hex nuts. The other end is bolted on using the same bolts that hold on the rear cover plate.


All #180 rollermills with a discharge hopper are supplied with a PTO guard (#86). This guard bolts to the angle iron on the belt guard using ¼” x 3/4” hex bolts, lock washers and hex nuts. This belt guard is supplied only with rollermills using a discharge hopper and auger. If the rollermill is being used without a discharge hopper, an adaptor (#67) must be used as shown in drawing. This adaptor bolts on using the top two bolts on the bearing flange. The guard (#86) then bolts onto the adaptor.



Never use the rollermill without all the appropriate guards in place.

Always turn off the machine before removing any guard or when servicing.

#180 Rollermill


Before using the rollermill, check the clearance on the rollers. Place a piece of newspaper between the rollers and adjust the set screws on either side of the rollermill till you can feel a slight tension on the paper. The rollers, however, should not touch each other. It is very important that the rollers are evenly adjusted. To ensure good rolling results, check roller adjustment regularly and reset if necessary. Close the gate control (#20) before starting the rollermill. The intake hopper should be partially full before opening the gate control.

Keep the hopper partially filled at all times while the rollermill is running. This will allow the grain to be rolled evenly across the full width of the roller and will result in more uniformly rolled feed. It also helps prevent the rollers from wearing unevenly. Before stopping the rollermill, close the gate control while there is still grain in the hopper. When the grain remaining in the machine has all been crushed, shut off the machine immediately. The gate control is left closed until the machine is started again. The roller bearings should be greased approximately every 80 hours or once a season if used less.

NOTE: When replacing bearings or tightening a loose bearing collar, always tighten collar in the direction of shaft rotation using a center punch or a similar tool.


To regulate the type of rolled feed one wants, adjust the adjusting screw (#47). Increased pressure will result in finer and flatter feeds. Decreasing the tension will give you a coarser feed.

The unloading auger has a clean-out cover at the bottom of the discharge auger should it ever become plugged. The top section of the unloading auger swivels to allow unloading from any direction.

Recommended tire pressure is 60 psi.
