    Default Re: HST or manual shift on B series?

    I've had two gear and two HST tractors. I'm down to 3 of those 4. The one I got rid of was a gear tractor I had for 30 years. If I had but one tractor for genral purpose, all around work it would be HST. I am a little surprised I'm saying this, since the last new tractor I bought (my JD 3005) was geared, and I like it a lot.

    It may be easier to do precision work with HST, but I can do precision work just fine with my shuttle shift gear drive tractor.
    I don't believe the B series gear models are availible with Shuttle, GST or syncronized. So HST is the best way to go on those machines.

    I can't think of anything that a hydro trans would not be good for.
