Driving home with a smaller axle i picked up from a friend for a water trailer i plan to make from a 55gal drum, i pass this riller sittin by the road. I dropped off the axle and went back before scrappers could beat me there & thinking i would just thro it in my jeep was not gonna happen. Apparently the owner had filled it with concrete & eventually it took (3) 4x4's and me & a buddy rolled it up into the jeep. End result....it did a great job on my lawn and it was FREE!! (even tho it almost destroyed my back)20120923_125525.jpg 20120923_125519.jpg

good find
it will flatter your yard pretty good.
my lawn roller is filled with sand and it took 4 of us to get it on my pickup.

Isn't it amazing how heavy those are when filled with anything other than air?

Excellent find! looks like it'll take care of the ruts, bumps, and mole-holes very well

Nice score on the roller. At least you don't have to load it again!

That looks like a pretty rugged frame on the roller. I'm glad you found it and can re use it at your place.
