This is the question I have. I am building a small front loader tractor that I plan on runing 2 hydraulic motors in series coupled to chevy 14 bolt axles for 4 wheel drive. I am planing on running 4.11 with 33" tires on the back and 3.55 with 28" tire on the front. the front tires will spin 49 rpm faster than the back. I have a chevy 235 for an engine and a 4 speed manual. The hydraulic motors put out 1,335 lb torque would you use the 4 speed trany for more torque off of the hydraulic motor or just run the motor off the diff. ? I would like to keep this as short and simple as posible but the trany is only 20" long would there be much benifit for a small tractor in running the trans?
