    I think if you are a homeowner a gear drive would satisfy your needs unless you have large yard with many hills. The hydro is obviously a better unit than the gaer drive but its probably not necessary. Currently I own a 1996 52" Scag SWZ hydro and I love it. It handles much nicer than a gear drive and also manuvers better but its all about the amount of money you want to spend.
    Good Luck :)
