Rollers have to be VERY heavy to have much effect on a driveway, vibrating models will give a much better result.

IMHO, you would end up with a much better end result by using a very heavy blade set to a vaery shallow angle and back-dragged across the surface. If you can do it while the material is damp and then stay off it until it dries and firms so much the better.

A little CaCl (calcium chloride) will help to bind everything together and make a harder surface after it dries.

Best of luck.

Like Murf suggested: for my pit run drives I use the back of a box scraper's rear cutter by extending the top-link to max. I also back-drag with a fairly flat loader bucket while holding down-pressure for a bit more compacting. I don't do it but sand bags could be strapped on to the scraper.

There are several archive threads about constructing rollers. Most designs are drums of some sort with pipes through the centre into reinforced ends on the drums. A shaft runs through the pipe to lower link arm mounts. It's good to have some sort of bushing support for the shaft and the advantages of a true 3ph-type mount might be thought about. In the very old archives, RogerL mentioned making a roller from the tank of an old gas water heater. They have a centre pipe already build in. There is archive discussion about the merits of liquid vs. concrete fill.

I'm having a 300gal. tank built out of 1/4" steel for a roller to compact our gravel airstrip. The manufacturer is also welding a tube through the center. Filled with water to 90% it will weigh about 2700lbs. I plan to use the box blade as TomG mentioned before rolling and then it will be hot sprayed with a binding agent.
