Most of the guys here shy away from the hydro transaxles. But if you want one, you would need a pump to power it, unless the pump was built in. Then its just a matter of making it fit.

Hydro's are better suited to mowing lawns - its easier to use a manual offroad, have more control and can take more of a beating . Hydros can overheat if the fan breaks, or if theyre run hard - theyre also specifically set for certain gear ranges - no modding one.

i figured since alot of garden tractors had them it might benefit me to have one to pull a moldboard plow with, I'm determined to plow a garden with the LT1000 lol

Nothing wrong with wanting a tractor to do a little work. thtats what they're for.


My little lt75 is there for nothing else. I'll never cut it up, it's just too rare, especially around here.

I have a spicer 4 speed & I like it. Easy to work on & easy to change gearing. I use mine for moshing in the snow and going fast. Just change a pulley & belt and go. I don't beat it or jump it. I've ran it hard and the only prob. I had was the wooddriff key . I know both kinds of tranaxles don't like pulling lots of wieght all the time. It kills them.
