English term or phrase:roller
"Another farmer dropped by to loan Tom (also a farmer) a roller to run across the bottom field.
After uncoupling the roller and seeing his friend away, Tom went back up to the house."
The action is in the 1950s at an English farm. There may be some pieces of metal from German planes in the field (however, this may have nothing to do with the roller). No more context makes clearer what a 'roller' is.
