    is this feasible and within a reasonable cost, or is it better to just buy a hydro mower?

    It would be better to just buy a hydro.
    You would have to buy both wheel motors, hydro pumps, and pullys it might need and a belt. Then you have to deal with the controls....

    I suppose it could be done, but it would only be a lot easier to buy a mower thats already a hydro. The only way I could see doing it is say you find another mower like your gear drive except its a hydro. And say the hydro has a blown motor and busted spindels so you got it really cheap. You could then switch the parts as needed. Thats the only way I could see it being worth it.
