I always wondered how the Amish pulled them two wheel ground driven spreaders with horses. Now I know.

The same way we pulled the ground driven spreaders in the 50s when I grew up......with a WC, then WD45 tractor. Never had a pto driven spreader back then. And a few winters, when the snow was too deep, wheel barrowed it out of the barn to a pile for a couple months, ...then loaded by hand in the Spring, cuz we didn't have a manure loader.....same way we cleaned the hog yard and all the pens all those years.

There are 5 or 6 concerns making 2 and 4 wheel ground drive spreaders. 2 of them are copies of the NI, so close a lot of the parts interchange.

I got a in a rush and busted the drive axle on the apron chain on my NH PTO spreader. So I'm using my 4 wheel, ground drive NI 10 now. I would be using my McD 200 2 wheel ground drive, which is a better spreader, but I'm in the process of switching the apron chain from "S" to 67H.
With any luck, this spring I'll be spreading with the NI and one of my teams. Fuel is expensive.

I saw one in Indiana but it didn't have a motor on it.

It's been a while but I think it tires. It had an axle or something in between with gears and the pto hooked to that.

It was going when I saw it (didn't have a camera along) but I would think it would be hard to restart if stopped mid stroke.

RT (I haven't seen it since.)
