This is not a round bale roller............ This is a gang of 3 land rollers 54" diameter 1/2" pipe, one 14' long and two 10' long. You fill them with water and pull them across the field to push the rocks down.

I've repaired numerous round hay baler rollers. Some had been previous repair attempts, others were OEM designs. A single plate unless extremely thick or gussets to the outside to prevent the end plate from flexing will fail from fatigue of the end plate flex. I've seen a few with double plates like you are considering, their failures were from the shaft failing from chemistry change from the weld process in a poor location, and/or shaft undersize for loads.
But most equipment is made to sell, not last. The repairs, keeps me employed.
