    What is the difference between a hydro mower and non. Power? Speed? Does it pay-off to have the hydro...? What is a good average hp too?

    Generally more speed, more controllability, no belts to slip or replace.

    Desired HP will depend on the deck size, and what type/height of grass you are cutting, and if you plan to use a sulky.

    The truth is in the operator simply the best is on the web and a slogan,mowers by which all others are judged is in the cut, price, equipment, and warranty match these and then we will talk.

    You still offer no proof to back that statement up.

    Scags are good mowers. But there are others out there that are just as good.

    Don't trumpet an opinion as fact.

    Not to mention, the OP said NOTHING about brand. He wanted to know the advantages of hydro over belt driven walk behind mowers, and what HP he should be looking at.

    He didnt start a pissing match, just pointed out that your opinion of an inferior mower is way too high. Perhaps there is a reason they have a longer warranty? I personally feel they are heavy boatanchors.
