If you have hills, a loaded 200 may be a bit too much for a Cub's brakes.

I can sure believe that, Bob. But for one who never had a horse nor worked with them, just how did the 200H manure spreader driver handle the heavy load with the horses? Is there a brake on the spreader? If so is it possible to operate both that brake and a Cub's brakes simultaneously? Sounds like too much to do... ? ?

I don't think I'd pull this with the Cub, especially loaded. The manure spreader does not have brakes.

With horses, manure spreaders are called the "confidence booster", since this noisy machine, flinging bits of manure occasionally onto the backs, actually gets easier to pull (since it's unloading) as the job goes on.

I do have a 40HP loader tractor, and it could certainly pull it no problem, but the ultimate plan is to pull the manure spreader with horses, and use the loader tractor for... well... loading!
