If adjusted right the hand hydro is nothing to put up and down. Same goes for it not having power steering, It is a strange mower indeed, even though no power steering it does steer remarkable well like it has power steering. It's a fine built tractor...........go drive one and you will see what I mean.

Some other JD265 owners on here will tell you the same.

If you are just planning to mow with it, why is the no hydro a big deal....set your mower height and forget it.

It would be a much better buy then even one of those new crappy jd mowers at Lowes or Home Depot.

Good luck with whatever you decide on.
