    Some kind of roller-compactor, I'm guessing, and that's an end-cap for the steel cylinder that you're going to drive with some kind of square bit?

    Thanks for being brave enough to venture a guess! Close but not it.

    Curious! I would’ve guessed roller compactor as well.

    Kind of a post hole digger? Ok, not really a digger but jam it down into the soil to create a hole to pour concrete in to secure a post.

    I'm thinking probably not but that's the best I can come up with.

    Wait, maybe it does jam into the ground to create a temporary post to hold tape for a race or for a temporary closed trail or a sign? Just add a square tube and you're in business.

    LOL! That's pretty good, I love sci fi, but I don't have the skill to Weird Science this situation. Guess I'd rather make love to it, than have it make love with me. HA

    I'm probably going to make another with a larger diameter pipe to use a compactor. A friend used this size pipe (but 8ft wide) as a compactor behind a land plane. It works well but sometimes the dirt/gravel builds up and goes over the top.

    This will be interacting with the soil in a horizontal manner not vertical.

    Hm. Trying to drill laterally beneath established tread to run in a drain pipe afterwards?

    Uh, that will be used as a form for making a drain under the trail, and removed once the structure is complete.

    It is glorious indeed to design and build something yourself. I'm almost done with my 6 vertical bike rack!

    I don't know what it is but it looks manly indeed.

    It appears tapered in the picture.

    You are going to use it in a horizontal manner.

    If you have a tapered roller it would be idea for a berm. Wider at the top and tighter at the bottom.

    Close?

    Alright already, what IS this thing karthur?

    I got one of these from a dead zeroturn, which will spin the cylinder. Not sure if I'm going to use the tractor PTO, or small mower engine to power the trans.

    I'm wondering if tbmad has got it?

    Have you made any progress? Got a new pic?

    Right now I'm waiting on a hundred or so ar500 steel rectangles 1"x2"x0.5" to be made for me.

    Unless you got the AR 500 free AR 400 would have sufficed and would be much cheaper.

    Oh, that's right, you already said it's not a roller/compactor. Shoot, I thought I had it.
    I think Philbo is still convinced it's going to be a sex toy.
