Year-round utilization, versatile use, fast payback – our heavy-duty self-cleaning prismatic roller® convinces with enormous performance.
In field and grassland.
This is how you secure your field emergences!
The areas of application are:
Working widths range from 4.18 m to 6.18 m with weights from 1700 to 2400 kg. Standard equipment includes the self-cleaning Prismatic Roller® 45/50 cm ø with 305 prismatic tips per sqm and hydraulic folding.
The Matador is a real all-rounder. With high impact power. Can be used all year round in arable and grassland. Ideal for small and medium-sized businesses.
Enormous impact, year-round use, unsurpassed even on wet soils, fast payback and excellent at top agrar*. Our big all-rounder is the star with contractors and large farms.

The heavy field rollers are perfect
Farmer Johannes Sams, Neumarkt am Wallersee, reports:
“We regularly reseed our grassland. However, re-rolling with the smooth roller only produced unsatisfactory results. Since we have been using the Matador 30, the emergences have been right. We also notice that the roller stimulates tillering. New seedings are also succeeding very well. In the meantime, we are also rolling all the arable crops with the Matador and achieving very high and, above all, very uniform field emergence, which we did not know before. Despite 1300 mm of precipitation per year, silting is not an issue. My initial skepticism has since given way to the conviction that this was a worthwhile investment!”
As the inventor of the prismatic roller, we hope you will trust us to be able to realize larger and heavier roller stars at any time and with ease. So why don’t we do it, when the whole world is striving for “bigger and bigger” and “heavier and heavier”? The answer is quite simple: more than forty years of experience teach us that our soils usually do not suffer from a lack of reconsolidation, but rather often enough from excessive compaction caused by the use of heavy machinery. Since our rollers can also be used on damp floors due to their excellent self-cleaning properties, we believe that caution is more than appropriate! Not always you notice the emergence of soil damage at first sight! Not only in arable farming, but also on grassland. There, heavy equipment in wet soil very quickly leads to dense bearing of the soil. The consequences are a lack of oxygen in the root zone and stagnant growth.
Henning Sudenn, Sudenn GmbH & Co. KG, Varrel, Diepholz district. The contractor has been operating a 6 m wide prismatic roller type Matador since 2012.
As a contractor, I see the biogas boom with one eye crying and one eye laughing: the areas under combine harvesters have declined rapidly. In turn, the single-grain sowing of corn has grown. In doing so, I have found time and time again that the reconsolidation of the seedbed by farmers is completely different.
Therefore, I was looking for a front packer that I could combine together with the 8-row precision air seeder. During the tests, the Matador roller from GÜTTLER® convinced me. Firstly, it replaces the “dead” front ballast on the tractor. On the other hand, it creates an optimum, even seedbed in sandy soil thanks to the large ring diameter of the Prism roller®. Even with 10 mm of precipitation, after waiting an hour in our sandy soil, I can continue sowing corn.
In practice, the Matador has become a real all-rounder. For grassland reseeding I lend the roller. It is coupled to the rear hydraulics with the seed tank mounted. The grassland harrow from GÜTTLER® is installed in the front linkage. This means that the team is well balanced. On the level, a 120 hp tractor at six meters working width is enough. The good work results of the machine combination quickly got around. I had not expected such a high demand for grassland renewal. This has enabled me to gain additional new customers.
The Matador roller has also proven its worth in corn borer control. Combined with the harrow, it runs on about 500 ha in 2012 to control the pest. Even in direct comparison with a special device for beetle control, the Matador was able to convince with equally good results.
