Do you keep your axles locked? I wouldn't. R1 tires, loaded, that won't spin? I wouldn't expect them to,Update on tires don't spin. I have done some more testing and changed hydro filter. It will spin in low gear if you jerk it around and drive like an idiot. Overall I think it is performing as it is supposed to. Traction is just not a problem. I kind of miss the old gear drive...This video link is the rest of the story.
Agreed, that test was totally bogus. Why didn't he put both tractors in Low range, and Low 1 for the gear drive, and put both tractors on rough concrete and see which one pulled the most up to the point of wheel spin. Trying to pull with a hydro tractor in high range is just lunacy. And pulling with the gear tractor in high high is a great way to destroy a clutch in an afternoon.First of all, I am a fan of gear drive. However, there is no way I would do a pull test in high range with either transmission. That test proves nothing but it is a great example of what not to do.
At any rate, thanks for the update.
... A hydrostatic trans is not an Automatic. Maybe closer to a CVT. It doesn't have gears, it uses a pump(s) depending on how far you depress the pedal. From what I've read, it generates more pumping power the more you depress the pedal...
