Even filled, it turns and moves easily on a smooth surface, such as concrete / wood / fake-wood-flooring. I wouldn't want to push it FILLED across carpet, but it rolled just fine on it while still empty.
The filling actually took much longer than the assembly, and was VERY messy - you WILL want a drop cloth under it as they recommend in their videos (go to their website and watch these, you will be glad you did). I'm using my usual blend of peat moss, vermiculite and coir fiber, they have all kinds of excellent advice on their website on this front. It takes a LOT of it, so, be prepared!! And don't skimp on the moisture, it will "stack" more easily and you can get it to mold to the shape of the planter more easily if you err slightly on the side of 'too moist' rather than 'too dry.'
One thing to note if you're planning to use it INDOORS: This IS possible, but may be messy. The water runoff isn't a big problem: You can put a pan under the structure to catch any water runoff (I'm using a disposable aluminum roasting pan). It's the dirt that'll get ya: it does NOT stay in the planter very well until your plants have established some roots to hold it in place. Leave the drop cloth in place until this happens - they recommend allowing the filler to "settle" at least overnight before planting, and this is really good advice. Mine collapsed considerably overnight, and like an idiot I'd moved it off the drop cloth; I was a touch annoyed the next morning when I had to sweep up what felt like a metric ton of dirt off the floor (it was probably about 4-5 cups, but it FELT like ALL THE DIRT THERE IS). It also may drop dirt on you whenever you move it, or nudge it, or water it. Or have a cat try to use it as a launching point to a high-up window.
Eventually I took out my Costco-sized block of food-grade plastic wrap, and literally wrapped the WHOLE THING to get it to quit dumping dirt all over the floor. This also had the nifty side benefit of creating a kind of 'moisture seal' that the seeds REALLY seemed to like - I'd been giving them a "heavy misting" of water in the mornings using a big spray bottle (like you'd use for household cleaners, only, you know, NEVER used for household cleaners / only for nice, clean water), but after wrapping it up the dirt has stayed evenly moist throughout and the seeds started sprouting really well.
Again, only 'necessary' if a) you are driven mad by the dirt on the floor and b) are starting plants from seeds. Once the roots are in place, the dirt stops free-falling on you quite so readily and you should be set.
Bottom line: it could be a nice system but not for the price and the very poor cual its in many, many ways!
Will be looking for a different solution. Waste of $$.
