    Better equipment has a bolt on roller you can purchase. Rollers generaly do a better job so I'd go with that.

    Better Outdoor Products does indeed have a good roller like "prostriper" said, but be forewarned they post this warning, "NOTE: This product is NOT for use in creating fake crop circles." LoL:hammerhead: :dizzy:

    The roller from better is a bigleaguelawns roller.

    Check bigleagues price for it at www.bigleaguelawns.com

    Drill a couple of holes in the back of your deck and make sure the bolt heads wont interfere with your blade tips, use 2 matched lengths of 1-2"wide x 1/4" thick flat bar steel - match all of your holes up and sandwich a 1/2" thick heavy truck mud flap between the steel bars.
    Set the depth so that it rides 1/2" above the concrete (at your favorite lowest cutting height) when you assemble it all.
    It's cheap, simple, and ultra-durable.

    My first bar is welded in by the factory, but the bolts go all the way through anyway.
