Looks easy enough to build. Probably would be great for people with loader tractors.

Might be OK for a corn stalk shredder.  Didn't see where he mas mowing any grass, just packing it down  with 6 wheels before any blades get to the grass.  He wasn't driving fast enough either, DAH ? ?

I didn't see anything that would turn blades! No engine or driveshaft. I wonder if they are ground powered?

Yes it is. Pulley on the yoke that the driveshaft normally hooks to.

I wonder if that can be done by attaching a driveshaft to the rear end yoke and have the other end attached to a gearbox type brush hog??

May depend on the direction the yoke will rotate. Might be a decent offset also.

I know the Amish have built some pretty powerful ground driven tools up in the Charm, Mt Hope, Sugar Creek area of Ohio. Check out Horse Driven Equipment.

That would be an easy fix, just rotate the axle 180 for opposite rotation;)

The axle has 410 gears in it, so being drivin by the wheels instead of a driveshaft brings up the rpm, also, looks to be a good size sprocket on the pinion, so I'd bet the ratio is brought up there too.

The only thing I could see is traction being a problem if the unit was light, but never have seen one in person I can't say for sure, but cool non the less, and may stir up creative thinking outside the box for other projects? ;)
