It seems like it is more evident when mowing than anything else for some reason.
    We aren't talking about thousands of HP, my 953 Cat. is 110 HP and hydrostatic. I had a 955 and it actually had more HP but the fully hydrostatic 953 is much easier to work, faster and will push more.

    I know the hystat lawnmowers dont have the pull and longevity that gears do. I can def see hystat as advantageous for bucket work. For field work and mowing, id definitely rather have gears. For new users, hystat would be very easy to use.

    Just my opinion, but those old cat 963s sure do push. Easy to flip, but i havent seen anything in the class that can out push them.

    Never ran a 963 but real familiar with a 953. The 955s all three H, K and L I have plenty of seat time on.
