    Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between hydrostatic and hydrolic? It's seems what I "think" is hydrolic are generally stronger, is this in my head? Can't seem to find any good info on differnces, some manufacturers call the drives onething and another company calls them another. Thanks for any help

    I'll do a repy just to move it up.....I think it is one in the same. Now sometimes you see info like on the snapper 32" that use the word hydrostatic. I thought that simply meant that the pump and drive motor was integrated together.

    They are interchangeable terms I believe, however everyone calls them hydrostatic.

    yes they're are one and the same. Hydrostatic is the scientific term for the study of fluid in motion. Hydraulic is the actual mechanical application.
