That would pull stumps in the redwood forests! Too cool. Well, that is if it was properly built. Like pulling the Budweiser wagon with a shetland pony...only in reverse. Anyhow...cool post!

Why would you want to reduce rpms to hydrostatic? Wouldn't you want 3600 rpms to it, and the transmission after it like on the PowerMaxes ?

exactly right. The hydro is made to use so much torque at 3600rpm tops, right? At 3600rpm I don't think it matters if you have a 30HP or 330HP engine, the hydro will only pass on so much power. (unless it lugs your 12HP at 3600RPM but I don't think it does). If you wanted to compete with it you might be tempted to spin it at 7200rpm and see if it blows up, but at 3600rpm that tranny can't pass on more than design HP. unless you boost the pump pressure. :DI want to plow with that thing. V8 at idle. -Don
