Frontline heavy wall rollers are available in three point hitch, or drawbar pull. At the heart of this roller is a 20” diameter cylindrical steel pipe, with a wall thickness of ¼“. The roller axle is solid steel rod and is continuous through the length of the roller. Heavy duty pillow block bearings support the axle at each end.
All Frontline rollers can be filled with water to increase the rolling weight. The fill plug is 1” in diameter and located in the end wall of the roller for easy access. Additional weight may be added to the weight box that is sized to accept concrete blocks. The weight box is 16.5" front to back and 1" deep.
A rugged 3-point hitch frame is perfectly sized for standard quick hitch mounting. The operator can back up to the roller and couple the 3-point hitch quickly and safely. Retractable parking stands insure that the roller is in the correct position for 3-point hitch mounting ease.
