Questions about drive pumps??

Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between hydrostatic and hydrolic? It's seems what I "think" is hydrolic are generally stronger, is this in my head? Can't seem to find any good info on differnces, some manufacturers call the drives onething and another company calls them another. Thanks for any help

I'll do a repy just to move it up.....I think it is one in the same. Now sometimes you see info like on the snapper 32" that use the word hydrostatic. I thought that simply meant that the pump and drive motor was integrated together.

They are interchangeable terms I believe, however everyone calls them hydrostatic.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the LORD

yes they're are one and the same. Hydrostatic is the scientific term for the study of fluid in motion. Hydraulic is the actual mechanical application.
