My understanding is either hydro will bolt up to a rearend on a MF 1655 tractor.
So my question is......which one is the better of the two hydrostat as far performance......ie pulling power, durability etc.......
Thanks

I am with LIMEBUZZ.  I do lean a bit toward Sundstrand ease of repair.

One other thing to consider is changing a Massey to Eaton or a Snapper to Sundstrand you have a lot of linkage that will need to be swapped as well.
