    it will take you 1.5hr. i'd charge $155 if flat..

    it is not for sod, right? because you dont really have to roll sod....

    if it's for just bumps, can you make a hitch or attachment on your mower? then it'd be a lot less.

    you can buy a roller for $99. Just buy one. I usually dont roll lawns, I only roll lawns when I put new sod down. But when I do, it only costs $8 to rent.

    DOUBT one of those cheap plastic rollers would do what he is " most likely" looking to do. If he's going to try and flatten an existing "bumpy" grade on 1/3 of and acre, he needs the steamroller style, one that you ride on. I know a guy who does tons of lawn rolling. --or at least he used to.

    First of all you best bet is to roll it in very early spring just after the frost is out of the ground or after a s*hit load of rain. I have a 48" one that I tow behind my Z and I charge $60 hr, because of the wear-n-tear and because you have a go sooooo slow unlike cutting and two different directions.

    Hey Keith - howzit goin'? Good I hope. RE: the Rizzo story on Channel 2 last night. That crap has been going on in Detroit for years. They teased it like it was going to be something different. My wife holds 51% of the shares in my company - qualifying us for minority owned status. But, then again she is an active owner too. Not like the shell corp that channel 2 was talking about.
