I know this is an old thread, but I just joined, and want to weigh in. In the discussion of gear vs. HST, few have mentioned the issue of safety. With a gear drive, the tractor will not stop if it starts to rear up unless you find the clutch and push it in, and you have less than 1 second to do that in many cases. You could be dead if you fail to do that. With an HST, unless it is in cruise control (which is a bad idea in the woods), all you have to do is stop pushing on the pedal. HST also helps if you are about to be impaled on a sapling or branch that pops up. I have had my life potentially saved this way once, as well as when my ROPS hit a tree branch and the tractor front end lifted up. So, for me , HST is the safest way to go in the woods. Yes, it is mechanically less efficient, but who is using 100% of engine power in the woods anyway? The efficiency factor really only matters in field work, not woods work.
