    i have a 36" gear drive. the frame is identical to my 52"hydro. wondering if I could puchase the hydro tank,cylinders,ect.ect. and save money, instead of selling gear drive and purchasing new hydro. I haven't talked to gravely about this yet. just wondered what you guys thought.:cool2:

    It would probably cost you as much as a new hydro mower to purchase all the items neccessary to convert it. I thought about it one time and quickly slapped myself for thinking such silliness:rolleyes:

    it is just that the answer is probably not.
