Can anyone ID this lawn roller?  I know the pic isn't the best angle, but hoping it's good enough.  I haven't found any pictures of another like it, but it didn't look home made to me.  The roller drum is pretty small, I'd guess 24" x 12". There are triangle gussets from the tongue to the frame, a cast piece in the clevis-style hitch, and the flat stock foot rest is welded to the tongue.  My neighbor has a Gravely he mows with and I'm trying to convince him he should get it, but was curious if it was made by another tractor or allied manufacturer. 

 

Thanks,

Dave

I don't have a clue but I like it.    If your neighbor doesn't want it I would be interested.   Rick

You got me.  The hitch looks like half a u-joint yoke. With it being that narrow I'm wondering if it was for a one wheeler.

 

If it is homemade who ever built it did an awesome job.

i thought i had a similar picture, but couldnt find it. I think that going towards the Simplicity was the correct direction, but im thinking more of Midland line and their Dandy Boy tractor. The color if orginal is pretty close to what they used in the 50's.
