Soil Pulverizer Used As Lawn Roller
When Bob Comer spotted a soil pulverizer with a "for sale" sign on it, he knew right away it would make a great lawn roller. It cost just $50.
  Originally, the tool was used for breaking up smaller plowed ground for seedbed preparation.
  Comer says the ridged roller does a better job than a tank-type roller because it's more aggressive, working the soil back and forth but not going so deep that it makes it rough. He rolls over the lawn three times in the spring when the ground is soft, he says, adding that he creates a criss-cross pattern. It puts little ridges in the lawn that disappear after a few rains.
  "I don't have a fancy golf course lawn," he says. He likes the way the roller smooths out the yard after winter.
  He hitches it to his John Deere 318 garden tractor which pulls it fine.
