    Very wary about going too dry here - disagree about the staggering of the legs though - lovely bow-wave as she runs through the ground without tearing the turf but terrific shattering below that 3-4" of turf

    I thought the roller was designed to stop you heaving up gert slabs,, we put a crumble bar on the back of a 5 leg shakerator which stopped it,, how ever that was for arable ground not grassland,, we have the sumo now which does a similar job,,

    well if you dug holes that deep here they would fill with water after the amount of rain we have had in the last few days
