I built a big roller especially for those pesky moles. There's around 900 lbs of non-packable(coarse) sand and the weight of the LP tank and steel. The Cub does a great job around the yard but I'll guarantee that in soft dirt, if you stopped, you wouldn't move again, at least with my roller. I'm agreeing with Good Ole Country.

I have pulled one of the 4 foot gang disks behind my cub for several years (with concrete blocks for weight), and I'll agree with the others, a roller of any size at all behid the disk would be a pretty heavy load. Might pull it in first. but wouldn't bet on it.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
