In addition to refurbishing the rollers, the trailers that transport the rollers where refurbished. This was a major undertaking as the trailers had cracked frames and short ramps. Approximately half of each trailer was replaced by our staff as they fabricated new parts and welded them in place. Each trailer was finished off with a new coat of paint and new rubber tracks.

The complete cost of refurbishing the rollers and trailers was approximately $7000. The cost of three new rollers would have cost the club over $50,000, so the refurbishment is a very cost effective solution. The refurbished rollers will last the club for well over five years or until parts are no longer available.
