 how to make a roller

Cut holes in each end with 2inch hole saw. Slide a 2inch OD pipe at least 6 inches sticking out on each end weld. get 2 pieces of 2inch id pipe 6 inchec long drill and tap grease zerk in center of pipe slide over other pipe sticking out of drum with zerk pointed up. Build a frame from the pipes to the draw bar. OR You can get fancy and build a frame with 2inch flange bearings if you wanna shorten up the width.

Have Fun Harvey

 how to make a roller

There's an old thread where Roger Loving (who unfortunately retired from participation here) commented that he built a roller from an old gas water-heater tank. The burner vent through the centre was use for the shaft and the tank was filled with concrete. I don't know if the vent was fitted with collars and grease zerks at the ends, which as Harvey notes seems like a good idea. In the same thread, Peters mentioned that a water filled roller allows a tank to slightly deform at the ground contact, which makes for better results. All comments are good and interesting observations.

My only thought here is whether the top and bottom of a standard water tank are going to be up to the stresses. I suppose a fully filled tank is going to run 800 - 900 lbs. It would be lifted from only two points and may be subjected to various shocks in operation. Structural concerns seem less with a concrete filled roller (since the tank really only has to contain the concrete till it sets. I wonder is some reinforcement might be a good idea for a water filled one?
