You actually picked it up? How much did it weigh and is your back ok? Man.....you must be strong :) On another note: what made you choose that particular roller vs. other choices?

Let me try that link again


I demoed it for about 15 hours. It was very smooth and did a nice job of compaction. I wish it had a little more power as I use these machines for things other than finish grade on 3/4 crush gravel. It came down to ease of working with the CASE dealer. I had also demoed an IR DD25. It compacted well but visibility sucked. That was the only other machine I considered. They gave me a grand more for my Vibramax 263 than I paid for it about 4 years ago at auction (9K). I really want to go forward with plans to creating a bigger niche in concrete prep. This roller will help with that.

Looked at the spec's and it can do 11 inch thick lifts of gravel thats a big time saver.

You might want to go in the paving business now :laugh:

Right now they average around 10K square feet and less. I want to hit the 10-100K market. I have no desire to push asphalt. The occasional patch back is enough for me.
