When choosing the transmission for your next garden tractor, you should consider the type of work you’ll be doing.
Manual transmissions are generally more affordable but can be more difficult to operate, as you’ll need to manually shift gears while mowing.
On the other hand, hydrostatic transmissions are easier to use and provide a smoother ride, but are usually more expensive.
With a hydrostatic transmission, you can change speed and direction seamlessly without stopping.
Ultimately, the choice between manual and hydrostatic transmissions comes down to your budget and personal preference for ease of use.
