I've been reading through the manuals to learn as much as I can about my 444. I also looked through skad's of videos featuring Case/Ingersoll tractors. There's one question I haven't really found an answer for though. When you reduce the ground speed with the hydrive, does it reduce the amount of power to the rear wheels? For example; If I'm pulling a heavy load, would the tractor pull better by advancing the hydrive lever further forward, or let it creep?

When you back off on the hydro (slow down) you should be able to pull more. Think of it as shifting down.
This is the way it has worked for me anyhow.
Another advantage to the hydro is that you should very seldom need to use your brakes. The braking action of the hydro is very effective.

That answers my question. Thanks for the information.
