Those of you who are driving hydrostatic drive tractors, what, if any, reason would make you go back to clutch/gear drive tractors?

I think the gear drive tractors give better longevity, than thoe so-called automatics.(hydrostatics) Couldn't think of the name of them fer a minute. RJ

Haven't had a clutch since the early 80's and wouldn't ever consider wasting my time going back to one.

I'm sticking with the hydrostaic drive on my 1971 Wards tractor for plowing. Hal

The hydro on my Wheel Horse is sweet for snow blowing but I think I prefer the gear drive Cub 120 (okay a Cub 100 with a K301 motor) or 102 for mowing grass seems on the Wheel Horse I spend to much time trying to get my ground speed were it cuts well then I have to stop or slow down and start all over again.

Hi Vern it depends on what I doing for mowing I love Husqvana Hydro's and its the only way to go for me, for garden work like plowing tilling etc I prefer my Sears Suburban with a clutch and tranny.

Just a personal thing, others mayhave different thoughts. I like a clutch/gear drive. Have a J D 112. For mowing use 3rd gear with variator in 2nd notch, set it & relax the foot. For tilling, 1st gear & 3rd notch.
At work many years ago there were 3 forklifts, 2 with clutches, 1 automatic. Would grab one with a clutch if I had choice, easier to control. On the road I use cruise control when traffic allows, avoids leg cramps. Willie

Vern, I have an older(like me) John Deere (lx186) with hydrostatic drive, and I really like this machine. There is no way i would regress to a clutch setup. I do five lawns a week with it and it is so incredibly easy to use.
