Bet the OP's customer never dreamed they would stir things up to this extent. We may be able to get that yard down to 1 1/2" yet.
I think any kind of front roller would be an improvement over those silly caster wheel's. You can get a solid roller from Mclane but instead of spending money on those lightweight unit's people ought to get a better mower like Toro, Jac or JD. $500 seems to be pretty common for a used unit and that's a good price considering they cost close to $5000 new. Lot's of golf course's have them or you can look here.
