The ring that sits on the ground is 3-4' in diameter. Yes, you can leave the mineral in it to roll it. Total weight isn't a lot (I can pick it up if necessary), but it's difficult to lift for one person as the top will lift off the base. If I need to load it on the low-profile trailer behind the ATV, I just roll it up on the edge of the trailer, then 'tip' the base into the trailer.
