    What is the difference between a belt drive, hydro, and a commercial 21".

    hydros are better and more expensive but worth it!

    Hydro doesnt have any belts to slip and they have instant reverse resulting in less operator fatigue.

    belt driven is belts running the drive and mower deck. a commercial 21" is a step above the box store mowers. engines and all can take more abuse than your standard mower.
