 HST vs GST on L2800

I am planning to purchase a L2800 4x4 with FEL and wanted to see the pros and cons of HST vs GST on this model. I plan on using the tractor for moving dirt, bush hogging, tilling, digging, and small grading work. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

You can only get the hydro or gear on a 2800 and the hydro is the way to go because of the PTO.

Hollands; The drop in PTO horsepower will be little if any, the power to the PTO doesn't go thru the hydro unit. Frank.

I know what the paper says about the hydro's pto horsepower loss. The field work will tell you different if your tasks are using the pto! The flexibility of the speeds will get the hydro's work done faster! Been there done that for over forty years, I'm not saying that is the case with pulling a plow or a disc all day. The hydros have been an excellent unit and I've actually pulled with a hydro what a gear drive couldn't. The plus of the hydro would be that you don't need the clutch to stop the tractor to change gears which would stop the PTO.

Like the saying goes: "You don't miss what you never had". That said, if you try a hydro, you'll never want to go back to a gear. A hydro will make the work seem like fun when you can increase your productivity by double. And it doesn't tire you out shifting, clutching, and throttling--and still trying to steer.

I have pulled over 15,000 lb. (fully loaded 5yd dump trailer or a fully loaded bobcat/equipment trailer) with my 33hp NH hydro. It hardly knew it was there.

Frank: Don't know about 'botas, but on my NH, the power from the engine goes through the hydro pump shaft, then through the trans to get to the PTO (according to the Service Manual)

The only time I like the gear over the HST is in a field. Then mainly with a sprayer due to keeping ground speed fixxed. For such as cultivating, cutting with any kind of mower, blade or rake work the HST is hands (or is that foot) down better. kt

Kenny. Kenny. Kenny, take a listen son:

I control ground speed with a little creature feature called "cruise control". Set your range, throttle, press the "go" pedal, attain the speed and toggle the cruise switch. To turn off cruise, simply toggle off or touch the brakes. Voila! (that's french for "look Ma, no hands [or feet])

Whaaat? Yer Deere don't have that?

EW; I should have been a bit more clear with my statment of the PTO power not going thru the Hydro unit. There have been different ways of doing this. Some had a PTO drive gear on the shaft between the engine flywheel and the hydro pump that drove a gear to power the PTO, Some like Deere have the power to the PTO go thru the center of the hydro pump with a solid shaft that also spins the hydro pump, then the PTO drive shaft is splined on to it at the rear of the pump unit. The hydro motor is offset to allow room for the PTO drive shaft to go past it to the rear unit. The only thing I've ever known the hydro units themselves to power in any tractor is the drive wheel assembly. I had decided to hold my comments on the gear/hydro drive issue, some of you already know my staunch devotion to gear drives. But EW, double your prodution? If my wife had a new Lexus, which she doesn't. But lets say she did, we will put your blue hydro beside my green 12/12 power reveser on identical loader shuttle duty for a half day run, Dirt, (packed or loose), Snow, (any kind), in the mud, on sand, on cement, you pick the material and the conditions. If you move 10% more in a half day run I'd guve you my wifes new Lexus, if she had one. You name the time and place. Frank.
