How he made it that far Ill never know, considering it wasnt a smooth drum. It was whats called a sheeps foot compactor, has "nubs" all the way around it that dig into the dirt for compaction. The result of those nubs is that it sounds like a few hundred people beating the streets with a hammer when its rolling on asphalt.
I can imagine, I've seen those things compacting trash at the landfill
