Engine RPMs can have an effect on speed in hydros as well. If the pump can't produce the required flow to the motor in the hydro then top speed won't be reached.  Some hydros seem to be lazy unless they are run at close to 3600.

If you check the data on the LGT 100/125, I believe the gear drives are a bit faster from the factory.

BTW, those are some nice lookin tractors you have there.

Speed does not equate power.....Pull something heavy to see which will pull more


True, but he's testing in "road gear" not a 'working gear'.


Take the Bolens HT23 and HDT1000 for instance.  They are based off the same chassis and hydro unit.  Both have a 2-spd rear. In high range, the HT23 has a max speed of 10 Mph, while the HDT1000 has a max speed of 13.8 Mph.  In low range they both have a max speed of @ 4.8 Mph.


Even though the HDT is faster than the HT in 'road gear', for working they both would pull pretty much the same.  In fact, I'm guessing that the HDT might just out pull the HT because it's a bit heavier and has a diesel vs. the HT's gas engine.
