    No, there is no way the kubota will lift it.
    I will try with my tractor that is about 3 times the size of the Kubota.
    Not even sure it can handle it.
    If it doesnt, I will try to get the large commerical loader at the plant to do it for me.

    I plan on putting it on a tandem 16' trailer, which will still be a load, But I have previously put 2 yards of wet concrete on it (much overloaded [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]) and I only have 1/2 mile to go.

    I wouldn't use deisel.... That will be a solvent for the asphalt... An easy waterer is a 1/2" pvc pipe suspended across the top o fhte roller perferated. This connected to a hose, then a dump valve, then a resevoir. If small jobs.. a small res'vr will do.. perhaps a peice of 4" pvc capped at ends just above the 1/2 pipe..

    For a scraper.. some use a peice of fence stretched across the drum, held in place with enough resistance that it will clean the drum off.

    Not the best bet.. but if your drum has ridges.. a scraper blade will be more challenging...
