Road rollers are never cute with the exception of Rolly of Bob the Builder.
These machines are big, thick clunky suckers which roll over the hot asphalt and roll it smooth. Obviously you need a big one because you are doing it to a big road and you need something wide and heavy.
and that's what my impression always was, that road rollers were of that size, you stay away from them.
And here's the back end of the roller. Found it very cute indeed.
