What's in a name?   Being more or less an "Eldus Fartacus" I remember wat a "roller" was before new speak decided to apply it to the "Remington System."   Have to wonder what caliber this is?

That one isn't a traditional one, and has to compete in the unlimited class, where it isn't likely to be competitive. You can tell by the amber bubble gum machine on the roof- the older versions had a red one or nothing at all. 
These are all hard to load.

Unless it's longer than it's wide it's not a Vibrator 🧐. David

It is definately a vibratory roller!   Whole house buzzes everytime they go by.  Building a 10 million dollar, 6 mile bike path, from town to no where.   Built to specifications higher than the highway it is besiside.     Our   tax dollars at waste.

Doesn't look much like anything Remington was making 140 years ago!

Picture is a little fuzzy but it looks to have a 54 on the side so must be a 54 caliber!
