The crushing roller

It is used to stop the growth of green manures sown on plots at rest.
The action of this roller is to stop the sap flow of plants and leave a mulch on the ground. The cutting blades break the stems in several spots and the weight of the roller coats the vegetation. After a few days, the plants die, and the cover turns yellow. This manual roller is an adaptation of rollers generally adapting on tractors.
It consists of a closed steel cylinder, with a cap on the side that allows it to be filled with water to increase its weight, and empty it for easy transport or storage.
