I lucked out again this week.  I got the welder on Monday and today a finally found a roller at a good price.  Agri-Fab 217-728-8388 20" Dia x 36" wide. 640 lbs filled with water.  A previous own had left water in it and it froze the water pushing out one side and ripping the metal around the center pin/axle.  Not a big problem I will work the metal back down and weld it up as good a new.  They sell new on-line for $140 plus shipping.  I paid $40.

Now I can get rid of some of the bumpy spots in my yard!

COOL I could use that dude. Good deal.

 

Hmmmmm Sand is also recommended.

 

1 gallon of loose sand weighs 12.03lbs

1 gallon of Compacted sand weighs 14-17lbs

1 gallon of water is 8.35lbs

 

Has to be 64 gallons since it weighs 105lbs dry and they are claiming 640lbs filled with water. So 64 x 12 = 768 + 105 = 873lbs with loose unpacked sand. 

 

Got wheel heights on the tractor? lol  I had to use weight and chains on the tires when I borrowed my neighbors big roller to roll my other neighbors and my yard. It is a big sucker guessing it weighs 800-1000 lbs. Filled with concrete.

 

Pulled it with my old Sears SS15 but it got hairy real fast making the turn up through the neighbors yard. Lifted 1 rear tire and about lost it. Good thing I was smart about it and shifted my butt onto the left fender.

 

I'm really glad it had a new red Aramid Kevlar drive belt instead of the old cracked one that was on it a couple days earlier. That wouldn't have been fun.

Good job on the math!  I don't plan on using sand but I will see what she feels like with the water in it!  If my sons 123 can't handle (no rim quard) it I was going to use the 1811.  She has 180 pounds in rim guard in the tires.

Started messaging the metal back in place with a short piece of 4x4 and a large hammer.  After a while is was able to push the metal back into place.  It almost sounded like one of those steel drums from Jamacia (not really).  The metal was pushed out a good half inch but eventually it got put back into place.  We ran out of time so I'll have to weld it up after we get back from the tractor show in Salem.

I got the welding all done on the roller and got the plug today in the mail.  I hooked up to the 149 and filled the roller with water and away I went.  It seemed to work well.  The only problem was the tractor.  With the front bucket sticking out you had to make quicker turns before you ran into something (Like my wife's lilies) so I will have to take the tiller off the 1811 and try the roller on that tractor.  Should make it easier to control in smaller areas.

On their web site agrifab says to pull the plug when not in use. Reduces pressure from heat expansion just sitting out in the sun
