I'm not real sure, but I'm pretty sure that they are the same.

Same thing a gear driven WB & a belt driven WB are the same. Going downhill they suck out loud on a flat surface they are at home, Going up a small incline they do ok going across a slope you have to fight to keep the machine to keep it going straight. They also don't tend to do very well in wet conditions.
If you have the cash buy a hydro. A hydo has instant reverse not reverse assist like a belt.
A good belt drive could run ya $2,000+. Hydros usually start at $4,000+
