The number of people using gear driven out numbers the people using hydros. According to Lawn&Landscape magazine, 32% of the immediate walkbehinds with decks 36&quot; and greater are hydros while 68% are gear driven. <br>Does this mean gear driven is better?<p>No, What I think this implies is that most people will not spend the extra $1500.00 to get a hydro. Retro is correct, they are faster and will save you time, they probably last longer too. Another reason belts are popular is because employees will tear up other items on the mower long before the belt or hydro drive system fails. If it were up to me, I would buy the gear driven and put the $1400.00 in a tech stock and let her ride.
