JD has been using dual hydros for quite a while now. Ever since the 900's came out in '09 at least.
Maybe you meant they use unitized pumps/motors? Exmark does too now. Believe me, the 900's are far from spongy feeling, and they have a nice short throw to the sticks now to get them to respond.
I see now that this is redundant LOL
