  • lawn roller landscaping homemade

    hi, for personal needs I should make a
    lawn roller for agricultural use.
    I would like to build it by recycling used materials such as gas tanks or similar cylinders to be recovered from scrap car wreckers. some realization suggestions, thanks

      Piece of metal pipe, cap the ends, bolt on some hubs, add a handle or hitch.

          I have to tow it manually, therefore it must not be too heavy, like a tennis court roller.
          for the rotation axis and how to center the axis with the roller drum? the rudder is used both for pulling to push and as a rotation support for the drum itself. I have to rotate it more or less straight in axis I have to make the holes converge with the rotation axis, as a rule I should use an appropriate lathe to perform the various housings. but I don't have this machine tool available, as a remedy and obvious to this inconvenience in an empirical way?

            Have you looked at any commercially available ones? Might be cheaper than making one and at least it’ll give you ideas on how to make it.

              I don't have to tow it with the tractor. I only need it for a small plot. maybe I do it with recycled iron and scrap and I spend little money. thanks anyway

                This is a small lawn roller I built 20 years ago. It's just some tubing, flat bar, bearings and a motor casing from a scrapped 200 hp electric motor. It weighs around 300 pounds and has worked well over the years. I still use it on occasion.
