    I have a 700 # Lawn Roller...

    Due to a few late stragglers after the spring rush, i filled and emptied my roller more times than i cared to. The last time it was emptied it was filled for approx. 2-3 weeks. Was this to long?

    Also, i didnt see the water as i did not empty it. I loaned it to a family member and he emptied it after he was done, but i have not went and picked it back up yet.

    How long do you leave water in your lawn rollers?

    All season. I have done this for years. I empty it when it gets cold and freezing potential starts. Make sure if you are emptying it though, that you empty it fully, and leave the plug out so it can ventilate. The condensation will cause it to rust.

    There's a good application for fluid film. Slosh a pint or so around in the roller every time you empty it.
