OK - here's a new subject for the infinite wisdom of readers.

I want to make a special purpose "truck" powered by a small (15HP?) gas 
engine. My garden tractor uses a Peerless transaxle - are there any 
other makes/models that I should consider?

My 6-spd Peerless will only shift when tractor is at standstill - not 
ideal for my "truck".  What sort of transaxle are the "shift on-the-go" 
type - not hydrostatic judging by the price.  

Hydrostatic would seem ideal IF I can find a used one for reasonable 
price - are there any disadvantages to them? My tractor even in 6th gear 
only goes just above walking speed. Are the 2spd (hi/lo) hydrostatic 
likely to give me a little more speed - say double walking speed?  I 
know it depends on wheel size(!) - but based on tractor experience?

Thx - Derek
