    Can a belt drive 36" be converted to a Hydro? Anybody done this? What kind of cost would be on something like that?

    Thanks

    It would probably be cheaper and it is easier to sell the belt and buy a hydro. By the time you get all of the pulleys, belts, pumps, wheel motors, adapters, possible different handle bars, hoses, fluid tank, hand controls, wheels, tires, possible different tractor frame etc. you would be laying out some big jack.
     
  3. It is not possable.

    Also would be cheaper to buy new mower than buy the parts by them selves.

    I have switched decks from a 48" hydro to a 36" belt drive. Made the 36" a hydro and the 48" a belt drive.

    Only way it can be done.
