I am considering a new tractor purchase of either a L4701 or a MX5200 with either the gear drive or the hydrostatic transmission. I a told by the salesman that the hydrostatic robs it power considerably (a noticeable difference)of its power even though the literature states its a 2 hp loss.
Is that true or not?
My main use would be bush hogging & disking for green fields deer hunting. which tractor & transmission type do you recommend?

Secondly, do I purchase insurance through Kubota, home owners, or through a specialized farm equipment insurer? who do you recommend?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I would ask you what are you going to be doing the most with the tractor? I don't know how much of the discing you might be doing vs the brush hogging? I would recommend the gear if you are mainly discing for fuel usage. The hydro is the best for the brush hogging on all accounts.
The thought of other potential drivers is a major plus for the hydro as there are many who can't drive a stick shift!!!!!
I don't really care about the horsepower loss of the hydro as I have witnessed the hydro out mow a gear drive to many times! As a matter of fact I have never seen a gear drive tractor keep up with a hydro doing PTO work!!!! ....
