    neither ,i think once you get over 36in cut you need more power 17 or 19 at least,with that being said, go hydro if its going to be your main mower

    I have owned several toro WB and the pistol is the way to go on a gear drive and a T BAR for a HYDRO. My opinion but that is 25 years worth. I like the T on a Hydro but not a belt because in order to truly make a T real workable you need easy access to reverse and the T gives you that on a Hydro.

    If you have the $$$$ for a hydro go for it. He work great in the rain and hold hills well. Also you can get into tight spots with the instant forward to reverse on a hydro.:D If you don't have the $$$$ go for a hydro then go for a belt with exmark ecs or pistol grip controls. I tried out a belt drive with T Bar and did not like it. It was to hard to turn the machine.:realmad:
