A lawn Roller ...no more

Recommended Posts

SmilinSam

Bought a steel lawn roller a few years back that was dented up on one side. Only paid $14 for it. Used it a few times, but it wasn't heavy enough. Been sitting behind the shed for some time. Didn't want to scrap it as it looked like I could use the hitch iron for something else later.Well, the other day I was looking around here for something to use as the basis for a weight box for my Kubota...and there was that lawn roller.A little ingenuity and 2 afternoons later WaLLaH!..a weight box:DdOd

At 18" diameter and 18" deep, I should be able to put 200 - 300 lbs in it. Could pour concrete it it too I guess. For now, scrap iron will be filling it.Nice thing is there is the other half to make a second with Cat "0" pins to fit the Sunstar, also can use Cat 1 bushings to put it on the Legacy eventually too.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
