    Ok this is a 2-part question. First- I aquired a power roller that you drive- thinking on incorporating with mowing..is rolling worth the hassle of storing? I know some say do/don't..but wondering if it is a money maker or just yard ornament. Also..Has any of you 'elders' used a 'Frazer' rototiller to do tilling in spring for few extra $? Frazer is old..but a worker. This will be for home use..but might advertise too. Geno

    i think you're missing the point on the lawn rolling. don't just focus on the money.

    Do you ever get any sod jobs. You'll need the roller. If you're looking for extra money, an aerator would be more marketable to your existing customers.

    I haven't made a lot of money rolling lawns, but I usually just do the infields of baseball fields.

    I have a jabcosen triplex greens mower with the roller kit on it. Used it one time to do a sod job. Never had anyone every call for it. Anybody want one? $500 and it has a brand new motor.

    We roll some lawns in the spring to try to repair frost damage. Lots of guys around here do alot and make some pretty good money doing it. However most are part time and I don't think any taxes are paid. We also do tilling but have a Ford 1520 tractor and 5' kubota tiller. It's used more for lawn installs than gardens. Better money.
