    any advice greatly appreciated
    build quality
    weight (light land)
    side opening or high unfolding
    stress on wheels when unfolding

    Dalbo not heavy or strong enough imo. Got some cousins contour hd 12m rolls which are decent. Few design quirks but a heavy set of rolls.

    Dalbo all the way top product very well made and a really decent team of people to deal with.

    Just bought a 10.4 M set of Cousins with shattaboards. 24 inch rings they are very simple and well made,maybe not as many pivot points on the gangs as some but with that comes less complications.

    Got a set of dalbo with shatter boards on heavy land, and for ever welding the frame plus the tipping ram was corroded within weeks of getting them they replaced it and within a few months the second ram did the same. When you store them either the tipping ram or the wing rams are out unless you take the pin out of one of them to pull it in. IMO just not well enough built for heavy land.

    Shatter boards put a lot of extra stress on the frame. Our 7.4 meter twoes can use all the 210hp on the front..

    Cousins Contour - strong frame and good for fitting seeder/pelleter units to as unfolding is simpler requiring less pipework. Very top heavy and no weight transfer to the wings
    Twose - bearings don't last long but that might just be the bearing quality. Older versions had a rack & pinion for unfolding the outer sections that was very unreliable. Newer linkage based system looks much better Alamo owns them now so parts will be slow to get. Otherwise, a good set of rolls
    HeVa - poor bearing life, poor rams and paint quality. Good otherwise. First class weight transfer to all roll sections. Long frame.
    Vaderstad - small diameter rolls which have more rolling resistance. Expensive for what they are.

    No experience with any other makes

    Twose 12m and 6m here. I like everything about the 12m, good weight, nice size rings. But unfolding mechanism is awful, but it does work (older model). Bearings easy to change and last if well greased. 6m set is just brilliant all around
